Watching as events unfolded live, people frequently wished it was not really happening. The Fish War they would come to call it eventually, but as it happened they tried hard not to give it a name in hopes that it would not become a recurring thing.

The oft-ignored wise folks are raising the alarm at these developments. But as usual, they are ignored.
More than a year later, the Fish War has taken a toll.
