I don't think Morocco should be given the territory it invaded until the world recognizes that annexation! Not one country has recognized that annexation. Otherwise, it feels like playing into the hands of invaders!

Makes international recognizement of annexation any difference ? It is just sad. I think 100% of West Sahara inhabitants would vote for self-goverment. (Not counting foreign colons) . Although this situation has no turning back, Jetpunk should not take sides (as Palestina is rarely considered neither a sovereign country not part of Israel but another shamefull occupation).

If a country is in possession of land that is not technically theirs and actively and successfully defends it, it should be counted as that country's land on a map, as it is owned by said country (for accuracy of the map).

From a world map, Africa has a really smooth outlines compared to Asia and the Americas and the peninsula-covered mess that is Europe. Guinea Bassau kinda spoils that.

Uganda is quite disturbing because of the south border that includes Lake Victoria and isn't representing the shape of the coast.
