    To much amusement, LA Times have accidentally wiped France off a map and replaced the area with sea.

    Talking more ecologically - which country would you genuinely wipe off the map?

    It'd have to make a difference to the surrounding area. I'd wipe out the Republic of Congo as I think it would provide a great lake which would provide an essential water resource to starving Africans.

    If I had a second choice, I'd wipe out Russia - the climate is far too cold and the territory too large and densely populated.

    By 'wipe out', I simply mean the space disappearing and turning into sea, as the LA Times did with France
    Some of the most likely to disappear under the waves is the Maldives and the Dominican republic. Would have a pretty low ecological impact on the surrounding area though, relativley anyway.

    One of the areas which would have the greatest ecological impact would be the Indo-Pacific region of Asia - Malaysia, Indonesia, Papua, Phillipenes etc. These areas contina a large number of the world's biodiversity hotspots and the removal of human activities would provide a great opportunity for the reestablishment of coral reefs and all of their residents.

    If the entire Middle East could disappear that would be nice for political reasons, though not necessarily ecological ones.
    Wow. Ignorance at it's finest!

    If I had a penny for every time I got called ignorant when criticising Muslim or middle eastern countries I'd have enough to buy Manchester City.

    There are few parts of the world right now that are more war-torn, divided and backwards than the Middle East. If I was to make any part of the world disappear, it would be that.
