Americans in general can't find another country on a map. This makes foreigners seethe.

No, it simply makes Americans, in general, ignorant.

lol I would say America certainly doesn't have a monopoly on that.

I mentioned the Ukraine conflict to a fellow Australian not long ago, and their response was basically what the propaganda says "well we can't just let them invade and take over other Countries." Meanwhile they forget that we almost had Nuclear war over the Cuban Missile Crises and they didn't even share a land border with the USA and they would all be very concerned and troubled if Chinese military were near our coast let alone on a land border with us.

Few would even recall the USA's invasion of Panama (codenamed Operation 'Just Cause' lol that's where the Russians went wrong, should've called it operation freedom). Whether that was the right move at the time or not I don't know, but it is the absolute height of hypocrisy in regards to Ukraine which is almost the exact same circumstances only worse because it also has the Cuban Missile Crises dimension added to it for the Russians.

Many in the western world (not just the USA) would probably have support for Ukraine leadership and yet probably couldn't point to it on a map or even know the reasons why the conflict has started, nor do they have any end game or desire for peace, just escalation upon escalation with the worlds largest Nuclear power and discussed like it's not big deal. Propaganda has really done a number on many people in the western world today.

God Bless
