    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

    That is pretty amusing - one has to wonder how many editors that image had to pass before it was published.

    I don't think it's a very good idea to wipe a country off the map for ecological reasons. If you suddenly create a new water body (especially one as big as Congo or Russia) you're going to significantly affect the global climate system which could have potentially catastrophic implications.

    If the entire Middle East could disappear that would be nice for political reasons, though not necessarily ecological ones.

    Would have to be the entire middle east. We could then just set up oil rigs.
