It's Not Just Mexico - Mapping Border Disputes Worldwide

Tyler Durden's picture

If territorial boundaries are not given by nature, they are usually drawn by humans and have most often evolved over decades of fighting and conflict.

As Statista's Isabel von Kessel notes, since humans existed on earth, the soil they inhabited has been of huge importance to them and as long as boundaries exist, people have found themselves in dispute over them. Hence, territorial and even maritime boundaries are not necessarily static, they have shifted back and forth to all cardinal directions and likewise, existing countries have been wiped out from the map while new ones have been created.

When it comes to conflict on territory, most countries on the globe are currently involved in territorial disputes and surprisingly few are not. Therefore, this infographic gives an idea of the status quo on a world that still experiences a lot of disputes about territory...

You will find more statistics at Statista

While new conflicts have emerged though, some others have also been settled in recent years, such as the border disputes between Burkina Faso and Niger in 2013, India and Bangladesh in 2015 or Chile and Peru in 2014, to name just a few.

The US is in red, but not Mexico. Strange. Our border dispute is with them.

Tallest Skil's picture

Reminder that president James K. Polk and US Congress voted in favor of making the southern border with Mexico start at Tampico and follow the modern southern border of Mexico's northernmost states. The TRAITOR, Nicolas Trist, negotiated for LESS land than he was ordered to take during the Treaty of Guadeloupe-Hidalgo.

There will be a reconquest, all right, but it won't be "reconquista." Imagine that region of the world under a white country's flag. Imagine the drug cartels rooted out for good (or, rather, having never been there in the first place). What a world.

It's not a globe, to the author of this piece.

Panama is such a puppet country stolen from Columbia.  They are still mad about it.

Are you a flat earth retard? If yes, then please go back to your owners at the CIA and tell them Aryabhatta - the guy from India who discovered the Earth was NOT flat a century before Copernicus - said, "Bend over bitches!"

TwelveOhOne's picture

Downvoted for "retard".  No, I'm not from the CIA.  I studied Dr. Samuel Rowbotham's book and performed my own experiments, and cannot find a curve.

Ignorant.
Mexican drug cartels exist precisely because of usa's so called war on drugs.
And some of the most violent ones are backed by the CIA, armed by Eric holder, yet you'd rather pretend it's all mexico's fault, and USA has nothing to do with it.

Fish Gone Bad's picture

There is a lot of money for people to make in the illegal drug trade.  From growing and harvesting, to chemists and mules, to distributors and dealers, to cops and judges, lawyers, prison guards, and everyone in between.  Illegal drugs keep a shit load of people employed. 

If any agency wanted to stop drugs they could arrest some people getting high, torture them and find out where they got it from, then torture the guy who gets ratted out and repeat the process until everyone confesses.  So why with all these "bad cops" hasn't that happened?  Because it keeps people employed and paying taxes.

Lol.

Stick any flag on it you want.

It's still full of Mexicans that are gonna Mexican. That's what they do.

NidStyles's picture

US military would have pushed them off the land trail of tears style.

White men have forgotten what it's like to be on top, because the struggle to get there is five+ generations removed.

AttilaTheGun's picture

And it was going to include Baja California. All those beachfront properties that are lost to history

Mr 9x19's picture

without cartels such in 70-90 you would have 3000% more black population if crackheadz didn't died massivly.

 

you should reconsider your pov about the things that happened in the past, and those that have not let be finished.

i remember something else in other continent that is very regretable to have been interrupted.

we see the consequences every day now.

NidStyles's picture

Nope the Blacks would have been removed as well. The world would look completely different if the White man had not fallen for Jewish tricks in the late 19th century.

flaunt's picture

I have imagined and it is fantastic.  There is no "dispute," the USA under proper leadership and with strong demographics could simply annex whatever portion of Mexico they desire.

Sanity Bear's picture

They dispute our borders but nobody disputes theirs is how I interpret it.

Schmuck Raker's picture

WHAT FUCKING BORDER DISPUTE???!!

"It's Not Just Mexico..." ?????

Actually, it's not Mexico AT ALL!

FFS Tyler, get some new interns.

Not My Real Name's picture

The US has five active border disputes with Canada -- the last border dispute with Mexico was settled in 1970.

Tallest Skil's picture

The solution is to have more borders and more walls. Fuck globalism.

BLOTTO's picture

The wall isnt to keep people out, its to keep us from escaping.

Tallest Skil's picture

Yeah, that'll sure work with 300 million privately owned guns, won't it?

BLOTTO's picture

I hope not... but you think a 5,000 year old plan is just going to be stopped? These cunts are geniuses, evil but genius nonetheless...

NidStyles's picture

You believe that bullshit. A people that couldn't even stop the Romans have a 5000 year old plan in play...

Dp - im baked. Headband and super silver haze

Of no use against a wall, fool !

man of Wool's picture

Yeah all the states should build walls round each other. America isn't really a country and its about time these walls were built just to remind everyone. Its a corporation.

Just something to think about:
 IF YOU CROSS THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER  ILLEGALLY YOU GET 12 YEARS HARD LABOR.    
  IF YOU CROSS THE IRANIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU ARE DETAINED INDEFINITELY.
  
IF YOU CROSS THE AFGHAN BORDER ILLEGALLY, YOU GET SHOT.
  IF YOU CROSS THE SAUDI ARABIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE JAILED.
 
IF YOU CROSS THE CHINESE BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU MAY NEVER BE HEARD FROM AGAIN.
  IF YOU CROSS THE VENEZUELAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE BRANDED A SPY AND YOUR FATE WILL BE SEALED.
  
IF YOU CROSS THE CUBAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE THROWN INTO POLITICAL PRISON TO ROT.

  IF YOU CROSS THE U.S. BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET ……. !!!
A JOB, A DRIVERS LICENSE, SOCIAL SECURITY CARD, WELFARE, FOOD STAMPS, CREDIT CARDS, SUBSIDIZED RENT OR A LOAN TO BUY A HOUSE, FREE EDUCATION, FREE HEALTH CARE, A LOBBYIST IN WASHINGTON BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS PRINTED IN YOUR LANGUAGE THE RIGHT TO CARRY YOUR COUNTRY'S FLAG WHILE YOU PROTEST THAT YOU DON'T GET ENOUGH RESPECT AND, IN MANY INSTANCES, YOU CAN VOTE.
Any questions?  Bueuler? Beauler?

Don't forget, even if you're a foreign citizen in the US you can still be President.

Stormtrooper's picture

Yeah, but ultimately you might (likely will) end up on the wrong end of a rope.

DeepFriedLizards's picture

Which would be the end not tied to the back of a pickup truck, I'm assuming.

> Don't forget, even if you're a foreign citizen in the US you can still be President.

Even if you are a foreigner in the Vatican you can still be Pope.

Immigration has worked well for the Vatican. An extremely wealthy country of 100% immigrants.

MCDirtMigger's picture

The Vatican has probably one of the most impressive of all walls around it. I wonder if it's to keep people in, or out?

It depends on whether they are caught by the Feds. If the Feds catch them, they are detained and deported.

red1chief's picture

Another thing, you seems like a really angry guy. If you wonder why you are under or unemployed, chances are it's the guy in the mirror and not the landscaper or people on welfare.

Robert A. Heinlein's picture

You seem like an idiot.  You know nothing about me.  I just posted what is reality.  I've read some of your post. You are not just an idiot, but a tool.  Carry on. 

Leotardo's picture

...and the reality being you are the dead R.A. Heinlein.... Who's the idiot here?

Robert A. Heinlein's picture

You.  If you are on drugs, there are not working.  If not, then you need to get them.

I see that you have used #6, the "Hit and Run" tactic posted in "Twenty-five rules of disinformation."

Murika wants to loot the Central Bank of 3 of those countries...

That means a lot about "freedom and democracy"...

You gotta keep the fiat fuck funny money going...

Just taking a page out of the Pelosi play book. Pillage the tax payers while you rile against the system.  Amazing how it works.

Imaginary lines on a map mean nothing. People have a natural right to go and live anywhere. Theoretically, at least, people should have as much mobility as capital

Last of the Middle Class's picture

Globalist article designed to blur the lines of Federal law and US sovereignty and it's right to protect itself. Saw another article about how worldwide immigration is a right now. Bitch please! Yawn.

Arrest Hillary's picture

Geometrically straight borders .... are rare .... they imply strongly mutual consent and agreement .... most straight borders are in English speaking countries .... and with their neighbors .... collateral benefit of being neighbors with civilized people ? Anglophile Islamophobe .... and in your face proud of it ?

Arrest Hillary's picture

There is a God given natural right .... to go where you want .... if you pay your own frieght .... and make a living by contributing to the free market .... and demanding nothing .... but, a little respect for your gross personal product ?
