It’s a sad state of affairs when the majority of our population is so vastly uneducated in basic geography.
I remember my elementary school years where I learned Geography. Now, i can’t locate every single country on the map and I’m sure, very few people could. But thanks to my education, I can find all major countries, and most of the lesser countries, on the map. And for the remaining countries, I can at least point to the appropriate continent.
Because of the Gulf war, and the recent news, everyone should know where Iran, Iraq, and Kuwait is.
