McDonalds at War

It used to be said that no two countries in which McDonalds had set up its “restaurants” had ever been to war with one another.

I suppose it was some sort of capitalist mantra about how global trade makes us aware of our interdependence, rather than simply suggesting that all the chemicals ingested at McDonalds’ reduced our inclination towards warfare.

This morning it occurred to me to check the ongoing veracity of that claim. There are/were nine McDonalds’ in Lebanon, and there are more than 80 in Israel.
