Re: Rivalry between countries

France and Germany rivalry ended in 45 and it's pretty much a very nice relationship now. Living on the border, I've never noticed any ounce of rivalry left in people's mind.

Oh, strange. The Ottoman Turks appeared in the region only in the 13th century or if you stretch it to the most 11th century, and I've tried couple of times to count but can't go up to thousands . Hundreds would be correct if you change Turkey with Turks because Turkey only exists under this name from 1923.

How did you avoid that in your history classes? There's been a lot of historical conflict(warfare) between those nations. Hopefully nowadays the rivalry is on more or less friendly terms.

I know. I was just joking. It was hilarious when that internet hoax appeared about Belgium splitting in two.

Re: Rivalry between countries

India-Pakistan

Obviously due to partition.

After partition, it was decided that some territories will go to Pakistan(the Muslim population ones) and some to India. The princely states could decide which country they want to join or remain independent. Kashmir was one of the princely states, which decided to join India. But Pakistan wanted Kashmir since it's population is dominated by the Muslims, so it wrongly acquired some parts of Kashmir(called PoK: Pakistan occupied Kashmir) and that resulted in a war(and more followed for the same.)

Re: Rivalry between countries

I guess USA-China

I don't know if most Americans consider any country a "rival" but I guess more and more people want to beat out China at the Olympics etc.

It's definitely a healthy rivalry, there's no malice.
