If you add Austria, you need to add Manchukuo, Mengjiang, Korea as well, since those formally independent puppet states were part of Japanese empire and as such attacked by the Soviets in Operation August Storm.

A single-finger typist could finish this in the time allotted. I think 30 seconds should be a good amount of time to get the heart racing

I don't know how the Ukraine could not be included in this list. Though it wasn't bloody, their annexing of Crimea was certainly a hostile action.

Very few know that the Crimea was an autonomous republic until Kruschev signed over the area to the Ukraine SSR in 1954. Didn't matter back then as it was just a redrawing of the internal borders of the USSR. The Crimeans were never given the opportunity to decide where they wanted to go after the dissolution of the USSR.

Crimea, along with the rest of Ukraine, voted on an independence referendum in 1991. The referendum asked: "Do you support the Act of Declaration of Independence of Ukraine?" 92% of all Ukrainian voters voted "Yes" for independence, including over 54% of voters in Crimea.

Having randomly come across a bunch of your comments today, TinklePork, I'm convinced you are purposely trolling. Why? There are so many intelligent people here to have meaty, fact-based discussions (even disagreements) with!

The British invaded Iceland in WW2. They had no intention of being permanently there but felt it was in their best interest to hold the country during hostilities. They were officially not welcomed but they did not fight the landing forces. The British told the US to occupy whatever territories in the Caribbean they deemed necessary to protect the Americas.

Yeah, these were the sorts of "invasions", I thought of too; the one that first popped into my head was Gulf War I – 30-some-odd countries "invading" Kuwait, but only to kick an invader out. But I confess that upon first reading, I did the same double-take as mckinpo! This is clearly why Quizmaster gets paid the big bucks :-)

The description "with hostile intent" says more about the quizmaster's political views than what really happened. I won't go into détails as iddit has already done that,. I don't know whether quizmaster would describe the many US invasions of the past century as being "with hostile intent" but surely they were!

Japan should be included. The Soviets invaded Karafuto (the Southern part of Sakhalin) and the Kuril islands, which were then Japanese.
