  • 10 countries at risk of collapse

    I found this interesting.
    I don't stand by the content, but found that it could be worthy of a good discussion-




    Countries come and go, who will be next?

        Yes - not the only error in the clip nor the only ten countries at risk, for example Italy could easily split in three - North, South and Sicily

          Well, it ain't like it hasn't happened before.






          In fact, some went away before hardly anyone knew they were there!

            Belgium?
            I have heard that too often the last 30 years. No muscle maybe, but a lot of sinews.

                Missed some out

                Soviet Republic of Bremen.

                Historically the port city of Bremen has been an independent republican city state. It joined the German Empire in 1871. In the period of 1918 –1919 it mirrored many of the events that took place in Bavaria . In November 1918 workers groups in Bremen declared a socialist republic. On January 10th 1919 the communists had succeeded in taking over all the government institutions and the Soviet Republic of Bremen was proclaimed. The new soviet republic lasted but 35 days. On February 4th 1919 at the request of the provisional government units of the German army and some freikorps stormed the city and bloodily suppressed the Soviet Republic of Bremen. Today the Republic of Bremen is part of Federal Germany.

                Burgenland/Lajtabánság

                Burgenland was a strip of Hungarian territory that was only 15 miles from Vienna and inhabited primarily by Germans with a high incidence of Romers. With the break-up of the Austro Hungarian Empire and under the terms of the Treaty of St. Germain it was allocated to Austria. Hungarian irregulars seized the territory in August 1921 from Austrian border police that had just occupied it and refused to relinquish control. At the end of September the state of Lajtabánság was proclaimed. In October1921 ex King Karl of Hungary flew into Lajtabánság using it as a base to launch another attempt to regain the throne. In response the governments of Czechoslovakia and the Kingdom of the Serbs-Croats-Slovenes (Yugoslavia to be) mobilized their military forces. Karl was forced to withdraw and went into exile in Madeira. Burgenland/Lajtabánság was plainly unviable (with less than 10% of the population of Hungarian origin).
                In late October 1921 the Italian government mediated the dispute between Austria and Hungary regarding the future of Burgenland. The two governments agreed to a plebiscite which resulted in most of the disputed territory joining the Austrian republic. Burgenland became an Austrian province.

                In 1943 both the Americans and the Nazis considered the future of Burgenland. The latter considered exterminating its population as being racially unfit for membership of the Reich whilst the Americans (in secret papers on the future of a post war Hungary) considered (amongst a number of options) handing it back to Hungary. Neither option was adopted.

                The Limerick Soviet

                Formed in the early days of the Irish War of Independence by a strike committee. It lasted 12 days (15 to 27 April 1919) during which it issued its own currency. The roads in and out were blocked by British tanks and armoured cars. However it was clear that Sein Fein would not be supporting it and trade union support from elsewhere in Ireland was equivocal. A compromise was agreed with the RIC and it faded out of existance

                    Sicily would be part of the South. It usually was before.

                        The problem with that is that most of that money is owed to us, the US. It's money borrowed from the Social Security "trust fund."

                            spend more and pretended it isn't a problem.
