Political Aptitude Test

This was sent to me by a friend. I don’t know its origin but I thought I’d share.

This test consists of a single multiple-choice question, so you better get it right!Here’s a list of all the countries that the U.S. has bombed since the end of World War II, as compiled by author/historian William Blum:1945-46 China
1950-53 Korea
1950-53 China, again
1954 Guatemala
1958 Indonesia
1959-60 Cuba
1960 Guatemala, again
1964 Congo
1965 Peru
1964-73 Laos
1961-73 Vietnam
1969-70 Cambodia
1967-69 Guatemala, again, again
1983 Grenada
1986 Libya
1980s El Salvador
1980s Nicaragua
1989 Panama
1991-99 Iraq
1998 Sudan
1998 Afghanistan
1999 Yugoslavia
2001-Present Afghanistan, again
2002-Present Iraq, again

Now, in how many of these countries did a Democratic Government, respectful of human rights, occur as a direct result? Choose one of the following answers:(a) Naught
(b) None
(c) Zero
(d) Not a one
(e) Zip
(f) Nada
(g) Zilch

Time’s up – what’s your answer? FYI, these were not at all the only times the U.S. interfered with other nations – there were also multiple instances of election tampering, insurgency, and what would today be called terrorism, all instigated or sponsored by the good ol’ U.S. military.

  1. So sad. The US has become the leading terrorist nation.

  2. If you don’t like what the US is doing, then get involved in polotics or stop griping.

    Similarly, have any of y’all thought what would happen if we hadn’t attacked them?
    Many of those were in war, or preventing war.
