Take for example, if somehow Tennesee became a country to its own. The only way for it to do any trade or be involved in anything foreign outside of the US would be to
a) use US airspace
b) Travel across US ground
So basically, they have to ask permission from the SAME country every time. If they get in a war with the US, they may be in a fix. They can’t go to their other bordering neighbor in the interim.
- Are there any?
- Can the outside country effectively starve the inside country?
I hope this is in the right place…there is a GQ, but my second question is kind of vague-ish. Thanks…
(I make my 2-item lists with joy and elan and refuse to address the issue other than this sentence.)
