Aside the US, what is the most important country in America?

Historically speaking of course

France

Sorry I thought you meant in the rest of the world.
Probably Brazil.

Mesopotamia

Argentinian Mesopotamia?

Argentina from 1890s to the 50s and Brazil from then on

Washington.

Fuck Deodoro, fucking traitor made us 60 years of progress and allowed the argentineans to control the Prata river.

Hans Island is Canadian clay, and Greenland is not a real country
>>
Haiti.

It's the only one that has macro-historical relevance. Brazil and Mexico are big, but their histories are irrelevant to the rest of the world, meanwhile, Haiti, with it's revolution, entirely changed the history of the world by changing the nature of slavery, hastening it's end and being the first successful slave revolt in history
>>
Canada. The only other developed country until Pinochet cleansed Chile of commies, but Chile is basically just a cliff while Canada is the 2nd biggest country in the world.
>>
>>691833
> the first succesful slave revolt
Do you even Quilombo de Palmares
>>
>>691899
Crushed by Bandeirantes.

>>691914
after 100 fucking years
looks more succesful than Haiti to me
>>
>>691894
>Canada
Literally less relevant than Mexico

t. canadian
>>
>>691927
You can't compare. Haiti was a widespread revolution that completely destroyed the institution of slavery in a colony, "quilombos" in Brazil, just like other "maroon" communities in the Americas, were communities of escaped slaves that didn't actually changed anything in the long term, some, such as Palmares, even practiced slavery themselves.
>>
Right now, Mexico or Brazil.
If you had asked 50 or 60 years ago it would be Argentina.
>>
>>691462
Brazil.

Argentina had its time of glory between 1870 and 1930 (while Brazil stagnated until the fall of its brainless emperor), but never achieved the same level.
>>
Relevant in terms of what? Global prominence? That would be either Mexico, Canada, or Brazil. Economy? Canada, hands down. Military? Brazil, Argentina, Canada, then Mexico.

People forget that Canada has a massive stockpile of oil, an industrial economy, and a history of military intervention.

Cuba of course

>brainless emperor
you wot
>"Inheriting an Empire on the verge of disintegration, Pedro II turned Portuguese-speaking Brazil into an emerging power in the international arena. The nation grew to be distinguished from its Hispanic neighbors on account of its political stability, zealously guarded freedom of speech, respect for civil rights, vibrant economic growth and especially for its form of government: a functional, representative parliamentary monarchy. Brazil was also victorious in three international conflicts (the Platine War, the Uruguayan War and the Paraguayan War) under his rule, as well as prevailing in several other international disputes and domestic tensions. Pedro II steadfastly pushed through the abolition of slavery despite opposition from powerful political and economic interests. A savant in his own right, the Emperor established a reputation as a vigorous sponsor of learning, culture and the sciences. He won the respect and admiration of scholars such as Charles Darwin, Victor Hugo and Friedrich Nietzsche, and was a friend to Richard Wagner, Louis Pasteur and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, among others."

>Argentina
>Militarily
Nope. Especially not right now. And Canada might have a more powerful military than modern Brazil as well. Very low prospects of involvement in war have led to Latin America cutting down on military budgets throughout the last few decades. And the only one that had a historically large military budget to begin with was Chile.

And if you go by significant presence in International wars, Canada also sits far ahead of Brazil.

>Canada
>Economically, hands down
>massive stockpile of oil
Not really. And even industrialized, a small population will have a smaller international weight than much larger commodity-based economies. Brazil sits considerably ahead of Canada in economical relevance.

You're right, Brazil has a larger GDP than Canada, as well as a larger population. Diplomatically, Canada is much better situated than Brazil, however. It is well established on the international stage, and has participated in a major way in events all over the world. As well, Canada is one of the most developed nations in the world.

I will concede that economical relevance is the most important defacto ensurer of relevance.

Mexico was one of the triggers that got the USA into WW1. Add in their wars with the USA and Spain I would say they were.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland though the British overseas territories, close second is the French Republic through Guiana, with the Kingdom of the Netherlands in third via Suriname

>all these people saying Canada
What important historical events have been done with Canada? I can't think of anything they did in history beyond: And Canada also sent troops too.
>>
>>694749
>be Argentina
>economy crashes
>>
>>694760
Other than a six thousand Brazilians in WWII that didn't really fight anybody, Latin America has never sent troops anywhere outside of Latin America. Most of the contributions of the countries in the region to the outside world are development of crops during Precolumbian times, and production of raw materials for people in Europe in Postcolonization times. So, those Canadian troops could be considered a deal breaker.

That said, Brazil does hold more economic weight than Canada, even if not that much.

War of 1812, otherwise known as the north american theater of the Napoleon wars.
France basically opened up another front by allying with America in a bid to stretch Britain beyond her limits
Canada basically stopped, that letting Britain engage France with Prussia
>>
>>695124
Canada wasn't a country yet in the year 1812.

Canada, Panama (muh canal), Brazil, Venezuela(muh oil), Columbia(muh coffee and cocaine), Argentina, Chile, Cuba(muh missiles)

This meme again
Yes, it was still a colony, but very much so recognized as 'Canada'
As well, Brock mobilized Canadian troops, not British. This was good since the empire was able to find off the French backed Americans without having to commit their own forces
>>
The only country that stood up to the U.S and embarrassed them in the Bay of the Pigs
>>
>>695270
A colony isn't a country anon. All the other countries are talking about historical things they did after they became their own country, you can too. What you described is just Britain doing things on their North American territories.
