War Plan Red

If an American ever gives you the whole “we saved your asses in both world wars” nonsense, you can always respond by saying “but only because you wanted to attack us yourselves!”

I was astonished to come across information about War Plan Red the other day (thanks to this blog, which itself gives props to another blogger’s work, which lists the “50 most interesting Wikipedia pages“). Do all countries get up to this?! The link in the above paragraph is to Straight Dope’s “War Plan Red” page, and it’s well worth a read.

(NB all the countries in the US’s belligerent sights are given code colours in shades of red. Ireland’s shade of red is “green”. Whatever.)
