Should Sint Maarten be recognized as a country?

Alright, so if you folks don't know what sint maarten here, lemme explain.

First, we look at the year 1631, the dutch had just built a fort on what would be sint maarten so the dutch have settled but tensions were high with spain were high due to the eighty years war. basically if I had to sum it up spain then stole the islands and then they both became mad and furious cuz of this the border was changed way too many times.

then in 1648 the spanish abandoned it. then the french took over the island in 1795 and then the dutch came back and it was split and half and then it became an island territory in the 80s. but is autonomous like artsakh, the question remains, should it be recognized as a country? and why should or shouldn't be?

every cultural enclave should be recognized as a country.
island ones especially.
shouldn't have to depend on having armies and willingness to deploy them.
and while we're speaking of should, anyone who invades where anyone else is already living and going about their own culture and developing it,
should have to go to be without desert.

Do they want to be recognized as a separate country from the Netherlands?

Sint Maarten is a country.

No, the Dutch settled it, let the Dutch keep it, or give it to España La Madre Patria.
