Immediate causes of War


The Causes of most wars are best divided into immediate and underlying. the immediate causes are flashpoints that boil over into armed conflict,

This has to be the stupidest

I'm not sure if this could be called a war. It's still a good read though.

congratulations on your first post, good to see fellow newbies up and running.

A war ummmmm possibly not, i think the other side has to be armed with something slightly more dangerous than beaks.

What about the so called "Pig War" in 1859?

As for I remember, that war [with warships involved!] started because of a pig "migrating" from British territories to American territories ...

Although of course the role of the bucket is very likely a later mythical addition. Still, fits the genre.

After reading about pigs and dogs im more than happy to believe that an oaken bucket became war booty.
