I'm not really sure what the point of this thread is, but I have to express my amazement that this is not a more well-known war: The War of the Triple Alliance 1864-1870.
quote attributed to Kissinger; 'South America is a dagger pointed at the heart of Antarctica.'
USA untouchable by neighbors. South America too weak (relatively) and remote to have much impact on rest of world.
I can tell you that even here in the USA this war is barely remembered.
