First things first. Let us understand what is causing a war. Economic gain, territorial gain, revolutionary ideas are some of the elements that cause war, and we see a point in them. But wait, the story has also witnessed a lot of wars, in which we can see absolutely no sense.
Let us know some of the funniest and most pointless things that have provoked a war. Dive in!
Seriously? Bird droppings started a war? Yes! The Spaniards landed on the Chincha Islands, the only notable feature of which was that birds really loved settling on them. These islands were claimed by Peru. The guanorans of the islands were valuable as fertilizers, but the Spaniards wanted, above all, to show that they did not consider Peru a real land and that they could take things from the Peruvian islands whenever they wanted. Peru disagreed and boomed, a war began. After a few naval battles both sides claimed to have won.
Almost every house has a special place, thing, or place that is sacred to the people of the house, and one should not bother with those special "sacred" things. The same thing happened here. In the Ashanti Empire, there was a golden stool. The chair was sacred and was not only to house the authority of the chief, but also the spirit of the Ashanti nation, as well as the souls of the living, the dead, and the born. You could have guessed where the story is going! The king of the Ashanti Empire had been banished, and the kingdom had remained without responsibility. In March 1900, British General Hodgson entered the capital of the Ashanti and said that as the Ashanti lands were under the rule of the Queen, they should bring him this sacred golden chair, and things began to disintegrate. The people united and declared war on British troops! Unfortunately, the Ashanti Empire has ultimately lost on the battlefield.
Although this is not too funny, it's downright ridiculous. Are you going to wage a war against someone for the things that happened a few years ago? In 1738, a British sailor, Robert Jenkins, showed the deputies a severed, decayed ear. In his testimony he claimed that a Spanish Coast Guard officer had cut off his ear seven years earlier as a punishment for smuggling. Soon the British declared war on Spain. There used to be clashes between the British and Spain, who served as fuel for a war. In the end it was a draw.
In 1859, America and Britain fought over borders. Apparently, Lyman Cutlar, an American farmer who had moved to the island to live there under the Donation Land Claim Act, found a large black pig rooted in his garden and shot and killed the pig … what happened as property exposed by Irish Charles Griffin. As a result, British authorities threatened with the arrest of Cutlar, and American settlers demanded military protection and created The Pig War. There were no real battles during the war. According to the National Parks Service, the only threat to peace during the thirteen years of the war was an extravagant supply of alcohol … meaning that the pig was the only victim of the war. 19659007]
