Wikipedia wars: Herzog, Dokdo and Israel

Here's an interesting page on wiki wars. Note the entry on Herzog:

Werner Herzog

Born in Germany, supposedly of a German mother and a Yugoslavian father, and raised in Bavaria, Germany. Does that make Herzog: a) Croatian or b) Serbian? How about the fact that the relatives live in Bosnia-Herzegovina? Use edit summaries to publish interviews that you conducted — or heard rumors about. Mirrors and forks are great sources too. After consulting a printed source, it turns out that it was the mother who was from Croatia. Ouch.

Ouch indeed!

Here's the list of wars on wikipedia (that happened in the real world not on wikipedia.) I love lists.

And here's a real war being waged on wikipedia by some right-winger Israel Nationalists.
