it happens. and let me assure you, though I know a bit of geography... even I got the scares. So, you are not the dumbest of americans. I join you as another dumb person .. not from america, but from India. Anyhow, there is nothing wrong in our getting scared. This world, these dirty politicians... anything can happen any moment. Anyone can attack any other one. BADLUCK. let us strive to make this globe peaceful. through friendship

Hi bunny! Ok girlfriend! You have company! I didn't understand why Russia was attacking Georia the state either. Everytime I heard it I kept thinking "what did they do to Russia to piss them off so much"? Why are they just attacking them and nobody else in the USA? I never bothered to read the nes about it. Talk about dumb! So I'm really an idiot and yes fellow mylotes I belong to the idiot club! I'm #20!

I did. When I was in school Georgia was gaining its independence from Russia so I am sure it was at the fore front of a few history courses (early 1990's). This is just one more reason kids need more time in school.

well, there you go! i've been out of school since 1967! most of the news etc. revolved around the war. nothing was ever mentioned about a country named Georgia, kid.

Ah, that explains it. You know the "old" map LOL The only one that goofs me up is that Yugoslavia is not a country anymore. I know it broke up when I was in school, but I can never remeber into what bcause it has changed names a few times.

I did not know that there was a country named Georgia as well as a state. You are not the dumbest American. If you are then I am tied for first place right along with you.

Wow! I didn't even know there was another place named Georgia besides our state here in the US! I would have been scared too, I am in Minnesota and when the Twin Towers went they had said something about the Hinckley Casino being one of the next targets due to the size of it and I live here in Hinckley. Believe me I was scared sh%$less when they said that! No you are not a dumb American as I am right there with you!
