australia, 1901, which incidentally is about 130 years after the US. comparing the britain of 1770 with that of 1900 is comparing apples to oranges. Plus australia is not totally independent, having the queen still as head of state and the british flag as part of its own.

Is this the first time in your life that you see a not 100% correct by the international standards change of regimes/borders (Kosovo comes to mind)? On the other hand I do like your Kuril argument. Let's extend it a bit more: "Finally, would the British Empire accept a referendum by residents of it's colonies in the new world, for example, on breaking away from motherland and becoming independent?" Those sorts of things are not achieved by throwing roses at your enemies.

we don't know we are made of matter. What if what we call matter is in fact anti-matter ? Or to put it differently, if the universe was made of "antimatter" wouldn't we think we were made of matter and the definition of antimatter (positron etc.) would be the opposite of what's now? Isn't it just a matter (no pun intended) of definition ?

There is no point in fighting for land that doesn't belong to you. Crimea was and is Russian (60% of the population is Russian and most of the rest are russian-friendly), nikita chruschtschow transferred it to ukraine in 1954 in a time that it didn't really matter because it was simply USSR land.
