Thankfully it never came to shots fired in anger, however, I submit that the Spanish would have come off badly had they tried to project any military force into our waters.
Infanteer said:Funny, if we would have traded shots with either Spain or Denmark over our waters in the last 10 years, it would have shot the "Democratic Peace" (Democracies don't fight) theory to bits.
Could you imagine Canada being responsible for wrecking a key piece of Liberal IR doctrine?
Acorn said:It might surprise you to know that some of us may have done that Tom (professionally or not). The Spanish lose. (Hint one: projecting F/A-18s across the Atlantic with a combat load is only one of the little absurdities when considering Spanish superiority - don't forget we also have them, and know full well their capabilities and limitations).
The Spaniards would have been embarrassed in a very costly (human and treasure) way had it come to a shooting war.
