Epic Battle Over Hans Island

No, Not This Han!

In Battle Joined:
The Armies Wave Their Flags!
According to Humon over at Scandinavia And The World:
"Hans Island is the smallest of three islands not far from Greenland's coast, and Canada and Denmark have been fighting over it for years.

War ships from both sides patrol the area, and when they encounter each other their flags.
When the soldiers leave the ships they...take the other side's flag down and raise their own.
Sometimes they leave a bottle of whiskey too..."

Be sure to check out Humon's cartoon commentary on this epic battle.

Now ... isn't this a civilized way  to deal with this dispute? Imagine if the idea caught on.
