not technically a country nowadays but is essentially impenetrable
if i recall correctly, the English Royal Family was supposed to hide out there if the British Isles were conquered.
>extremely rough seas all around it
>majority of coastline is 50ft cliffs
>main city is easily dependable due to a bottleneck harbour
Clearly OP posted the wrong picture, as it is both a caliphate and has been successfully invaded and conquered like 6 times throughout history.
That's UK from the sky? It looks very green and beautiful.
I always find it interesting such a tiny island conquered the world (didn't manage to conquer USA though). How did it happen?
USA has never been invaded either but the Japanese bomb us in Pearl Harbor. We got them back x 2.
pic related is the harbour
there is a military base called fort amherst located right on the bottleneck, with large hills on the outside of the bottleneck
>Raid on the Medway
UK got invaded twice by the fucking Dutch. Can't make this shit up.
Ironically Brits look totally opposite of the 19th-20th century dreams of the "master race". They have chunky faces, and not very glamorous lifestyles (American media likes to show very wealthy and classy Brits but in real life the UK is very alcoholic and people will pass out on the streets). They live on a very rainy miserable tiny island. Then they hopped on little boats and made the largest world empire to date.
Looks very very green to me unless it is a CG picture as the Swede thinks and as the digs suggest it might be. Either way it looks very beautiful and green in this pic. From far away in outer space astronauts don't see our cities. They just see green (land), blue (ocean), white (clouds), and brown (deserts).
This is the UK from space
All that horrible grey shit ruining the landscape
This is a real picture of the UK
It's pretty green. Not like the OP though
Still looks awfully green and awfully amazing this tiny island went around the world so far. Its like if Papua New Guinea made a huge empire.
All the famous Brits came from that tiny island too. Shakespeare, Newton, Darwin, Adam Smith, Queen Elizabeth, Henry VIII, George III, Churchill, Jack the Ripper, Hitchcock, Sherlock, Beatles, Bronte Sisters, the steam engine guy, Narnia, on and on and on.
Nobody would believe it.
that's because pretty much all the countries which could actually give our military a challenge in conventional warfare are our allies or simply don't want to confront us directly (yet).
He never conquered Scotland, which is a part of Britain.
ya that invasion really worked out for you
the USA is just that fat kid who never actually gets into real fights because other kids figure he's too well protected by his blubber. sometimes he pushes someone, and they push back, and sometimes he swears at people and says what he did to their mothers last night but that's the extent of aggressive physical contact he has with the other kids. this has the effect of making the kid think he's invulnerable, which is why when someone pokes him with a pin he cries and is butthurt for the next 15 years.
ya thats why you wait for america to fight all your battles for you
you guys couldn't even manage an invasion against egypt with the help of france and isreal during the suez crisis.
>that's the extent of aggressive physical contact he has with the other kids
France existed as a country before the 5th Republic with virtually the same borders
Great Britain was never unified until 1707 when the UK was formed.
The creation of the UK (the country people are talking about) is not an arbitrary year.
It has been invaded several times by Danes and by the Russians too.
And as Finland was part of Sweden Sweden has been invaded loads of times by the Ruskies. We counterinvaded just as much tho.
>American leaders assumed that Canada could be easily overrun. Former President Jefferson optimistically referred to the conquest of Canada as "a matter of marching".

BEST DAY OF MY LIFE
No military support whatsoever.
Just emotional support I suppose. The US government probably wanted to feel involved with a military victory for once
>fail at invading Canada
>fail at beating Vietnam
I don't blame them
>posts white house burning
>britiains greatest accomplishment was setting fires to building only to have a storm come and put out said fires and kill some troops
>britian has to retreat even with no enemy present
>Former President Jefferson optimistically referred to the conquest of Canada as "a matter of marching".
You CANNOT make this shit up
>muh new orleans
yanks literally celebrate winning a battle after the war was over like they won the entire war despite their fucking capital being rekt and the white house burned
CAN'T MAKE THIS SHIT UP
>literally the biggest loss in British naval history
Only 50 years until that 1000 year milestone lads
>Washington DC was literally a swamp with a few buildings and no roads
>nobody was defending it
>literally only existed as a compromise between the North and South
>Britbetas brag about burning some undefended buildings even when they got btfo at Baltimore and New Orleans(places that were actually important)
>Capital city gets torched
>Hurr wasn't even important anyway
>implying britain hasn't been invaded by the muslims already
We're not the biggest navy any more
But the Royal Navy's still never been defeated, not completely, and it never will be :^)
They had their colonies liberated, but did mainland Japan ever actually get invaded?
We're not going to get rid of him just because he fucked yer mum
you say that but yours fucks a baboon every night
actually it was successfully invaded by the ancient finnish empire
Fund and organise army's and militias that turn into the Taliban and ISIS
> YOU CANNOT MAKE THIS UP
Y'all do realize that y'all are disparaging the same mental midgets that most of the Americans on /int/ hate as well. Americans on an image board geared towards communicating with world cultures aren't exactly the same chauvinists you see preaching about God and the US Marines on Fox News.
