      I dislike even responding to comments like this because they don't deserve my time. But you caught me in a mood.

      So, you complain that when you do something, do it good. (I think you meant do it well, not good.) But even in a simple comment you fail to follow your own advice. There are grammar issues and typos aplenty. You also embellish when you say "maximum" fail. This list showed 10 countries that don't have military forces. They may not be your top 10, but they all fit the criteria. How can that be a maximum fail? In addition to your vague comment you don't list any reasoning for your perspective.

      And finally, you use the most overused and lazy word on the Internet in your comment: fail. I actually despise this dismissive and lazy use of this word as a coverall for anything on the Internet that people don't like.

      I am taking a stand on my site. I will not accept any comment from now on that uses the word FAIL in this manner. You better have something more important to add than simply writing FAIL.

      Whew, I feel better now.

        I found 14 countries without military forces in Wikipedia. Yes, it's hard to pick top ten countries. And you did a good job. This is a great post. I like it!

          Okay, I’ll let that one slide by, Mary. I can never resist a good or bad pun.

        Yeah, I would say something closer to “maximum fail” would be if you listed the ten countries without military forces as:

        1. The United States
        2. Russia
        3. Mars
        20. Blue

    It would be fun to get a group of a few hundred men together and take over one of these places. Then, when NATO or whoever shows up you can surrender without incident. At least you can tell your grandchildren that you once invaded and held another country. At the very least it would make for an awesome grad prank for a bunch of students from Parisian or Madridian universities. ;-)

    I would take this far more seriously if you could use the word “protectorate” correctly.

    It does NOT refer to the nation protecting, but the nation that is protected.

    You had me confused when you implied that the Solomon Islands were protecting the United Kingdom.

    I DID NOT see all that invective coming in the responses.

    I enjoyed your list.
