  • Declarations of WAR.

    Here's a thought, hopefully someone can answer me.

    In this age of "Police Actions", "Peacekeeping Missions", "Conflicts", "Border Skirmishes", "Pre-emptive Strikes" and the like, when was the last time war was actually declared by one country on another? I mean, properly, legally "we declare war on you"?

    Anyone know?

    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

    I believe it was WWII since 'war' has been 'illegal' since the UN came about, but I may be mistaken. A 'state' of war and 'declaration' of war are not the same.

    If voting could really change things, it would be illegal.

        We're still waiting on you to declare war on someone so we can kick some butt Doc!

          I declared war on France in 1997. Never got a reply - not even an acknowledgement, let alone a surrender.

                Well, they do - but from a certain perspective. They miss out on the experience of the best bits of war - like winning.

                    Current declarations:

                    Currently, a few declarations of war remain in effect, although largely ignored and retained for only political purposes.
                    • Democratic People's Republic of Korea & South Korea have remained legally at war since the Korean War.


                      Israel is still legally at war with Lebanon & Syria.
                      Since the Yom Kippur War.

                      Whether or not Japan is still technically at war with Russia?
                      Although the Soviet Union declared War on Japan in 1945 - never repealing it - it can be argued that as the Soviet Union no longer exists... the declaration is void.


                    On the Plains of Hesitation lie the blackened bones of countless millions who, at the dawn of victory, sat down to rest-and resting... died. Adlai E. Stevenson

                        I declare war on brussel sprouts. I believe they are not native to the earth and threaten our well-being.

                            Unless they are allied with cheese, I will support you. But I feel it only fair to warn you that I will support broccoli and cheese, due to a longstanding deal I have with cheese.
