Why is there this need to assign a country to a continent when it is not part of one? I think it would be more accurate to describe these as non-continental countries.

They didn't do that when I was in school in the Dark Ages. Now some argue for geographic inclusion because of plates or whatever, while others argue for a different placement because of culture or politics. Don't worry, at some point it will all change again.
