POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo John the Greater Supporting Member of TMP observes:

Some wars are just plain silly.

Poll set up by Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian, based on this pre-poll discussion.

Anglo-Swedish War (18101812)
No fighting actually took place, Sweden decalred war on England just to satisfy Napoleon.
no opinion
I have no opinion.
Anglo-Zanzibar War (1896)
Lasted 38 minutes. You couldn't game it in that time.
England vs Finland, WWII
A war between democracies, which is rare in itself.
1969 Soccer War
Between El Salvador and Honduras. A war where you really can say both sides lost. Neither side gained anything and both were much worse off politically, militarily, socially and economically than before they started fighting.
Pig War (1859)
OK, not a real war. But it did involve a Captain George Pickett.
other
Please explain.
