There truly are some strange and odd places east of here
Like the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic
Also Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is recognisd only by Transnistria. Which seems to me worse than being recognised by nobody. Chalk up South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Somaliland & Sealand too.
the ex soviet countries you mention are only recognised by each other (on the whole) and taiwan is only not recognised by china
Yet it still just gets shown as a stateless area and labelled as Western Sahara on most maps.
and everyone used to recognise the name 'western sahara'
mind you im suprised by you saying not many people recognising Taiwan
i mean, i hear that other China is pretty powerful
recognise that tAIWAN EXISTS....but instead under pressure from china (PRC) they ceased to have official diplomatic relations (cos otherwise the bigger china would not have diplomatic relations.......so in other words Loads of countries DO recognise Taiwan.....they just say that they dont so that the big china will acknowledge them........the ridiculous thing is that even the US seems to have stopped officially recognising taiwan in 1979, yet still continue to arm and supply Taiwan....bizarre how the apparent facts (how many countries officialy recognise taiwan) can misplace the truth.
business and politics are very different things though.
you know why just about everything pirate comes from Taiwan? because they're not a state they're not bound by international copywrite law.
to not officially recognise poor little ex Formosa, and yet they are arming and equipping the island to enable them to defend against invasion from big china (PRC)
That just seems like lying.....If I were the UN I would ask why countries are lying
What?! Where is this? When was this? I don’t understand? Is this real? Why has no one ever heard of this!?!?!?
For some reason I thought it had been fixed.
I just wanted to say, I like the fact that discovering that things are happening in the world that he DOESN'T KNOW ABOUT appears to have blown Eggman's mind
i've been through the sorry charade of working out wtf is going on
you've sussed it.
I DO NOT RECOGNISE F5LAND
."Western Imperialism should start a band. If a bit of ironic dubstep doesn’t bring down Transnistria’s wall I don’t know what will".
but at least the birds are mega fit, right?
so all the attractive women have to be shared out equally.
For most DiSers this is their ideal.
was about breakaway states that aren't quite countries.
...it's like a filmset version of 1980s Soviet Union. Had to bribe border officials to let us out of the 'country' and back into Moldova.
There's another similar semi-autonomous state in the south of Moldova, Gagauzia.
