Is there really some reason why we can't split Belgium into a Flemish country and a French one? Then the Flems wouldn't have to make insinuations at Justine for her supposed "doping", and Carlos Rodriguez wouldn't have to accuse Clisters of "polemics". Why do the Flems and the Walloons need to nominally live together in the same nation and "share" the world's top two women's tennis players? The country is divided in every way but officially - why not make the split?

It has been thought about long before Justine and Kim. The King of Holland tried to get back what had been part of th Netherlands, and Napoleon III had designs on the former French share of Belgium. But wily King Leopold the First, the Crafty Coburger, managed to keep little Belgium afloat and safe from the big bullies.
And the Walloons and the Flemish have been fighting since then. :D

Splitting Belgium is going to require two new names for the new countries. May I propose... The Republic of Justinia... and The United State of Kimmeke :)

Good idea, then, on the basis of language we can break up Canada and Switzerland and merge Australia and New Zealand. On second thoughts, let's not merge Australia and NZ, it would kill off a lot of really good sheep jokes.

No way! This would be a slap in the face for all Flemish Justine fans. I have a better solution and it involves a country famous for koalas and kangooroos :lol: :p

no way, now that we are finally managing to conquer the most of Europe :p and make Brussels a worldly capital! This almost sounds like a plot todivide and conquer by the French and the Dutch :p :angel: !

Really disappointed with DeWulf's comments though :rolleyes: , it's not the first time he instigate this kind of baseless accusations against tennis players only to hastily back off after asked for further detail or proof... :(

The two guys who make up the Belgian Army are lovers, and they'd be heart-broken if one of them had to move out of their flat. Belgium must stay one country for the sake of Leni and Alf! :)

They should split, not because of Justine and Kim but to stop the fighting!
Yes, this civil war has gotten out of hand. Those darn Walloons have killed half my family, my house was just bombed, just because I blew up that train headed for Liège. It's totally unfair and has to stop.

:rolleyes:
