If you watch this video 5 times and a half, you already lasted more than this war...

imagine how embarassing and awkward it is to get rescued by enemy soldiers because they felt bad for your makeshift warship.

British: We won a war in just 38 minutes. Americans: _Cool and all, but guess which country's average BMI just went up by 6 points in just 34 minutes?_

Video: The Brittish empire took Zanzibar without asking Me: fuck those guys, they're the badies! Video: So Zanzibar formed a rebellion Me: yay, go zanzib... Video: so that they could keep their slaves. Me:.... Huh....so... I guess... everyone's the badies?

That's more or less the moral of any and all history. There are rarely ever good guys in history, only competing villains with their own motives. In the end, we look highly on those who did the least damage or else earned the most respect by their actions.

You forgot the funniest bit about this war. The only punishment the British demanded of Zanzibar was that they pay for the cost of all the ammunition expended!

As soon as I saw Big Ben, I figured this would be "alright, here's another case of 'white people invade Africa again.'" But at least they did one good thing in abolishing (de facto) slavery.

@Damian Freeman for there own good,right? Btw i dont know where or even what Zanzibar is,so I wont say much about it.....
Damian Freeman (4 hours ago)
You seem to completely miss the part where Zanzibar was not independent for centuries and that Britain came in to take it because they wanted/needed to stop Germany from doing so.

The longest war was actually Netherlands vs the isle of Scillies which lasted 335 years! The Reconquista had a lot of chapters but the total franchise did last 774 years in terms of all wars fought between Spanish and Muslims in total count!
