Actually I deliberately didn`t choose those two. It`s not because N.Korea doesn`t have a horrible relationship with S.Korea but rather that NK has a horrible relationship with everyone save China which speaks volumes about China. Same goes for Venezuela & Colombia. Under Maduro Venezuela has a horrid relationship with every other LA country save Nicaragua. I don't think it's relationship is specifically worse with Colombia it's just that Colombia happens to be next door.

Nominating Thailand-Myanmar. The Thais treat the Burmese like dirt, even though they are nicer and better educated than the Thais, and of course the Burmese resent them for it.

I'd imagine most Thais are ok with the Burmese

What about Thailand and Laos? When I went to Vientiane, the Lao would often mention how they are far more humble than the Thai.

There is a lot of interesting reading at this site.

I agree with you.

Croatia, Serbia for example no longer care. You can find hordes of Croats going toBelgrade to party and study, and Serbs working in Croatia.

Same with Argentines and the English who only bicker and argue during football matches, other than that they are perfectly ok with one another.


The US has perhaps the most toxic relationships these days.

North korea
Venezuela
Iran
Cuba
Russia
China
Pakistan
and the list goes on.

The love affair exists only in the eyes of the UK.

The US sees the UK arrogantly like a minion. If it's convenient for America then the special relationship all the way, if it is not convenient or it doesn't affect them in any way then they forget the UK even exists.

Mexico is the US biggest trading partner.

Mex-Us relations is more a love-hate thing

love your tacos, hate your illegal immigration.

Same goes for Mexico, love your dollars / hate the dumb gringos and so on. Rather like the Irish and the English.

But to declare Mexico is america's biggest threat when you have IRAN, NORTH KOREA, RUSSIA, CHINA, one has got to be pretty clueless.

What do un-clueless people think a threatening Iran can actually DO to harm America? How many well-trained and equipped Iranian troops would be required to occupy the US and how would they logistacally be deployed and supplied, in order that all Americans would be speaking Farsi?

Every civilized country has a toxic relationship with that list, it's not unique to the US. I'm sure those countries have some redeeming features but nothing comes to mind.
