In a sane world with a sane populace, this would be an easy question to answer.
However, the United States isn't sane.
Before you read the correct answers below, please try to guess which of these nations we are currently bombing.
A YouGov poll released Thursday finds that just about a third of Americans knew for sure that the U.S. hasn't conducted any recent strikes in Syria -- a possibility that has been weighed, but remains a hypothetical. Thirty percent thought that it had, while the remainder admitted they were unsure.
At the same time, just about a quarter of Americans knew that the U.S. military carried out strikes against Al-Shabab in Somalia or against militants in Pakistan during the past six months, and only 16 percent were aware of strikes in Yemen.
Personally I find the fact that only 45% of Americans knew that we were bombing Afghanistan, despite the fact that we've been at war in Afghanistan for 13 years
to be the most disturbing fact.
Hardly anyone guessed that we were bombing Yemen despite the fact that our drones have been making regular strikes there for over a decade.
And consider that most people don't believe we are bombing Pakistan, a nuclear power, against the wishes of the Pakistani government, and have been doing so for over a decade, just shows how ignorant Americans are.
BTW, both Pakistan and Yemen are on the verge of civil war.
While I'm glad that most people knew we weren't bombing Iran and Gaza, the fact that there is anyone confusion at all is scary.
The correct answer is: 5. Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Pakistan, and Yemen
To borrow a phrase from Bill Maher, I propose a New Rule: You can't call for new military action unless you are aware of all the countries where we are currently killing people.
To complete this thought, let's see who Americans want to bomb.
The answer: almost everyone!
