I don't think so in this case. Harambe didn't start any wars.

Having read your previous post about Libyans being forward-thinkers, maybe you're right on this, too. Here I was thinking that the monkey was innocent, just monkeying around, pulling on girls' hijabs and stuff. But over there it's serious business, and I guess an old-timer like me wouldn't understand what it's like for a monkey to pull on a woman's hijab. Here I am just laughing about it, but if I was there and sharing my reaction they'd be giving me a dirty look before cutting my head off.

I still think the monkey is sharing this story with Harambe in the Afterlife, though.

Some reports say the monkey may have pulled off the girl's headscarf as well as scratching and biting her.


Monkeys can be vicious little shits.

That said, if people already have tanks and mortars ready to go the monkey isn't the problem.

Sounds like these people have wanted to go at it with each other for a long while. The monkey incident probably just happened to provide a convenient excuse since it was one of the rival tribes kids who set it on the girl (least that's what I heard) and it did a bit more than just pulled off her Hijab (scratching and biting).

Gotta love good old-fashioned tribalism.

Considering that the "war between the US and UK over a pig" was actually over who held possession of a significant string of islands (not over a pig, though that was the incident that led the conflict to flare up), and considering that the "war" actually involved no battles and no actual exchange of fire, yes, I would say the Libyan monkey war was significantly worse.

Unless you're referring to something OTHER than the San Juan islands conflict...?

Oops, beat to the punch by DeadlyOats. Probably should have finished the threat, THEN replied. Meh.

Wait it was an attack monkey that changes a lot
I'm serious that now means it was in retaliation not correct but the original headline made it seem like a random monkey attacked
Also the stupidest war ever was the emu war

Yes, it is much worse

Pig war (1859): " With no shots exchanged and no human casualties, this dispute was a bloodless conflict."
