Are island countries generally more peaceful than non-island countries?

Posted by: Foodiesoul

I think they are because island countries are smaller in size and population. Therefore, people don't have to worry about getting attacked due to the low amount of people. What do you guys think?

@ThinkBig That first picture is a picture of violence in Haiti. It's not racist at all! It's simply showing violence in Haiti!

It genuinely depends on the nation. The United Kingdom is a great example. Before the Act of Union 1707 England attempted to expand it's borders by invading Scotland (twice), invading and conquering wales, and invading Ireland. Then when there were periods of no fighting between the states of the British and Irish isles; although the people were still fighting, for example Scottish clans were fighting between each other, and England even started to colonise and these colonies later became colonies belonging to Britain after the Act of Union (1707) which united Scotland, England, and Wales to form the union of Great Britain. Thus effectively marking the beginnings of the British Empire. This new sovereign union of old ancient kingdoms decided it wanted to continue expansion. This Empire spanned between 1707 and 1997 when Hong Kong was transferred to China. Event though the United Kingdom is no longer a colonial power they are still involved in many conflicts, one recently being very controversial (Iraq war); however, other recent conflicts with UK involvement are arguable of a good cause to fight terrorism. However, after the Iraq conflict and all it's controversy some can't help but feel suspicious towards the Afghanistan fighting.
