So who gets it next?

Even though I am a US citizen I know that most my fellow countrymen are totally ignorant of what is going on in the world. In fact they don't even know where the rest of the world can be found. And for most the first time they can remember hearing about a country is when the US decides to invade it. But be assured that if the nation does invade, even without any significant justification, the American people will get behind that war. I suspect many of them have yet to figure out the difference between a blow-em-up Hollywood blockbuster and reality. When they do figure it out they tend to turn against the war. Well, to prove that Americans are rather uninformed this Aussie television crew interviewed individuals on the streets of America and asked where the US should invade next.

And the TV crew showed them a world map with the nations mislabeled. To say the least the mislabeling was not noticed. So watch and enjoy the interviews for yourself. And, if you really want to worry, remember that these people elect the officials who determine US foreign policy.
