Why do countries that are the closest to each other usually have a history of hatred?

Also countries with similar cultures, surely it would make more sense for these countries have come together rather fight against each other, examples of these realtionships are:

Britain and France
Britain and Germany (Royal family connection)
China and Japan
Greece and Turkey
Mexico and USA

Probably more

I would guess that because of their "similar cultures", they'd dig deeper for something they don't like about the other :dontknow:

Because in the past the main aim for a leader was power as in strength. Neighbouring countries don't exactly help with that and so invade each other for power.

USA and Mexico because of racism.

Hmm understand that, however would it not have made more sense for them to join in an alliance rather than fight each other, surely this would have made both of them more powerful, making it easier to invade other countries?

Yeah that's the thing about being power hungry. Trust tends to be the last thing on mind when there's a country right next to you.

Revelation: countries are more likely to invade those others closest to them, rather than ones on the other side of the planet they may or may not know exist. Shocking that.

Border control obviously.

Also many times the new nation next door was founded because they originated from the former area but didn't like it there.

Or they migrated and evolved into their own culture and way of life and keep getting unwanted influence and unwelcome visits from the next country.

Yeah I think that's the case. Seriously, the hatred isn't even needed..but I guess in 21st century people have nothing better to do no more.

I had issues with my immediate neighbours ...
I hardly was going to have issues with someone who lives in Dundee given I live in London...
What a silly question.
