How many of those wars have involved alien invasions, though? In every single one I have seen* the Americans win.

Anyway, to drag the thread back to the topic of Spain and Catalonia and away from the side track down which I followed diy...

I am afraid that this one rather crept up on most of us, with our insular outlook. I do not know enough of how this all came about. But the world order does seem very much in favour of the status quo: getting a new state accepted seems to be an extremely hard task.

It really isn't ancient history.. Spain hasn't been one country for that long. Arguably Aragon and Catalan have the same claim to independence as Portugal. Both at one point were independent and also part of Spain (Castile/Aragon).

I realise this was a film reference now.
