A Collection of Wars That Never Were

Interesting post from Russia Today on ten wars that never happened. Actually, only some are real conflicts that were narrowly avoided - like a war in the 1850's between the United States and Canada over the killing of a wandering hog (really), while others are hypothetical battles that could have happened if a certain chain of events unfolded, like a study in Collier's Magazine (a popular American publication from the middle of last century) on how World War III between the United States and Soviet Union might have unfolded. If you're into alternative history, it's worth a read.
