This reminds me of a video I watched on the net a few months ago - an Australian TV station walks around in the US asking random folk which countries they most want to go to war with. The presenter wrote 'Iraq' on the island of Australia, and not one of them noticed the mistake and boasted about how great it would be to blow the country up! I'll go a huntin' for the video now...
Young Americans Geographically Illiterate
Young adults in the United States fail to understand the world and their place in it, according to a survey-based report on geographic literacy released today.
Take Iraq, for example. Despite nearly constant news coverage since the war there began in 2003, 63 percent of Americans aged 18 to 24 failed to correctly locate the country on a map of the Middle East. Seventy percent could not find Iran or Israel.
