OMG I can't believe no one has mention mapquest.com. I've used them for 10 years now and are way more precise than bing or google. I tried to use bing maps a few months ago for directions (Bing & Google both had the exact same directions) and also mapquest. Thank goodness I had the mapquest. Bing had left off connecting hwys, included extra hwys and intersections that didn't exist and were all screwed up.
And ya'll have fun getting you a new country. LOL!
Crazy... This is like something straight from a Terry Pratchet novel! Funny and entertaining in a way, but the Costa Ricans are obviously peace loving people if they do not even have a military. It is very wrong for the Nicaraguan army to be doing this. I mean it's seriously uncool.
[citation][nom]dillyflump[/nom]Your telling me a countries military relies on google maps for navigation? WTF! Whatever next coalition forces using Tom Toms to navigate in Afghanistan. lol[/citation]
Actually Tom Tom's would be a step up from the crappy navigation systems we have. Was a Navigation Electronics Technician on a submarine, and the navigation program was absolute shit. We always joked with the newbies when we explained to them what it was, "Oh so it's like a TomTom?" Us: "No, it wishes it was a TomTom."
but japan has the JSDF and a couple US military bases. ever heard of Okinawa? with costa rica its a bit different. they actually do have a ministry of public security but its nowhere near the level of a standing army. they SHOULD in theory be able to at least counter a lame attempt at an invasion like this one...what a weak argument. that nicaraguan general really expects to go to international court saying he invaded another country because of google maps?
Presumably, if Costa Rica seriously had its territory compromised it would go to the UN and get a security council mandate like Kuwait did in 1990. Then it would either get the US (who has been loath to put forces under UN command) to kick out the invaders or blue helmets (UN forces) who will politely ask them to leave.
wait the troops took down the flag and put up their own? Hold on a sec in the whole group of people nobody stoped to ask why there was the other countrys flag flying? This spells fail on so many levels.
