Foreign Policy Quiz

 

This test consists of one (1) multiple-choice question (so you better get it right!)

Here's a list of the countries that the U.S. has bombed since the end of World War II, compiled by historian William Blum:

 

China 1945-46

Korea 1950-53

China 1950-53

Guatemala 1954

Indonesia 1958

Cuba 1959-60

Guatemala 1960

Congo 1964

Peru 1965

Laos 1964-73

Vietnam 1961-73

Cambodia 1969-70

Guatemala 1967-69

Grenada 1983

Libya 1986

El Salvador 1980s

Nicaragua 1980s

Panama 1989

Iraq 1991-99

Sudan 1998

Afghanistan 1998

Yugoslavia 1999

 

In how many of these instances did a democratic government respectful of human rights, occur as a direct result? Choose one of the following:

 

(a) 0

(b) zero

(c) none

(d) not a one

(e) a whole number between -1 and +1

 

(The list doesn't include Iran and Chile, both of which the US didn't bomb but backed thuggish coups.)

But, hey, glad we're going to end our streak of mistakes by backing a government in Afghanistan that respects women and human rights, because as our track record clearly shows, we're quite concerned about that, far more than we are about relatively unimportant things like oil or natural resources.
