    So most if not all of them are equally your favorites? Yeah, those wars are alright, I suppose, but WWI had trenches, and thus is better. Plus, it started because some odd duke died, which is the best reason for a war ever.

    i loved studying about the French Revolution in my Euro History class.
    I find it really interesting how there was almost nothing really "political" about it - it was all about the people and how the masses operated to overthrow the government.
    not to mention the musical Les Miserables... haha

    the war of 1783 (dont mind the date if its not the exact)

    When the Americans tried to expand into Canada but got their sorry asses whooped.

    I also like the war in iraq because of all the funny amateur videos they make.

    The war of 1812?



    Arrogant Worms - The War of 1812

    oo come back proud canadians
    before you had tv
    no hockey night in canada
    there was no cbc
    in 1812 madison was mad
    he was the president, you know
    but he thought he tell the british where they ought to go
    he thougth he'd invade canada
    he thought that he was tough
    instead he went to washington
    and burned down all his stuff

    and the whitehouse burned burned burned
    and we're the ones that did it
    it burned burned burned
    while the president ran and cried
    it burned burned burned
    and things were very historical
    and the americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies
    wa wa waaaa
    in the war of 1812

    now hillbillies from kentucky
    dressed in green and red
    left home to fight in canada
    but they returned home dead
    its only war the yankees lost
    except for vietnam
    and also the alamo
    and the bay of... ham
    the loser was america
    the winner was ourselves
    so join right in and gloat about
    the war of 1812
    and the whitehouse burned burned burned
    and we're the ones that did it
    it burned burned burned
    while the president ran and cried
    it burned burned burned
    and things were very historical
    and the americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies
    wa wa waaaa
    in the war of 1812

    in 1812 we were just sittin' around
    mindin' our own business
    puttin' crops into the ground
    we heard the soldiers coming
    and we didnt like that sound
    so we took a boat to washington
    and burned it to the ground

    oh, oh...
    we burned our guns
    but the yankees kept on coming
    there wasn't quite as many
    as there was a while ago
    we fired once more
    and the yankees started runnin
    down the mississippi to the gulf of mexico
    they ran through the snow
    and they ran through the forest
    they ran throught the bushes where the beavers wouldn't go
    they ran so fast that they forgot to take their culture
    back to america, gulf, and texico

    So, if you go to Washington, its buildings clean and nice,
    Bring a pack of matches, and we’ll burn the White House twice!

    and the whitehouse burned burned burned
    but the americans won't admit it
    it burned, burned, burned,
    it burned and burned and burned
    it burned, burned, burned,
    now, i bet that made them mad
    and the americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies
    waa waa waah!
    in the war of 1812!

    Does Price War count? They always lead to price reductions which is great for consumers.

    For violent conflicts...probably the French Revolution particularly the 1789 Bastille event. Shortly after we had the declaration of rights (men and citizen) which is a very good thing.

    I have no favorite war, real life war, at least. I don't think I should have a favorite event where so many lives were lost.

    My favorite historical era though that had wars was the Three Kingdoms Era....
