They didn't even try the countries on the eastern side.

For good measure, they use "Tehran" and "Teheran" on consecutive lines.

Set up by #1, spiked over the net by #2. Pretty sure we're done here.

..and Kuwait was sunk into the gulf in the conflict

Even better, Iraq conquered Armenia and Azerbaijan, Saudi Arabia conquered Turkey.

Did they leave off Kuwait, too? Or did Global warming get them?

I think part of Russia is now flooded by the Caspian as well.

Did they borrow Fox's Middle Eastern map or something? Why in the hell do of all things, news organizations keep making this mistake with the Middle East.

I'm more worried about the headline "Gold beckons for Iran's Salimi".

I totally misread it and thought it was a dick joke.

So is this the thread that we are taking to make fun of the relentless Best Korean powerhouse?

Look most reporters are dumber then a box of rocks. You really can't expect much out of them let alone geometry.

It's no mistake. They're doing their best to make sure that the average person who gets their news from the TV has a hard time finding on a real map the next country full of brown people that the "liberal" media says is a threat to American (and Israeli) interests.

Would somebody get Dick Vitale's voice out of my head when I read the headline ? For the love of God, make it go away !!!

We are just getting word that this poster made a post on fark.com. We aren't going to follow up but we can speculate that this individual was filled with hate and very anti-Media. No doubt this man is against the first amendment and aligned with various right and left wing terrorist organizations.

It appears that the previous report about Slaves2Darkness was incorrect. We are sorry about an insinuations you might have made from that post. Please stay tuned to our upcoming hour long segment where we will debate what WOULD have happened if the previous information had been correct and how we should worry about a world in which that statement was true

The term "brown people" to refer to Caucasians is generally considered racist.

I see that the Olympic hosts have upset Best Korea by displaying Worst Korea's flag during the women's football tournament. Result: Best Korea throw hissy fit and kick-off is delayed for an hour.

to be fair think of shiatstorm american media would raise if they farked up flying the american flag...we might just have to invade someone to prove a point and save our honor.

I'll leave it to Jello Biafra/The Dead Kennedy's to express how I feel about that possibility:

Put Rambo back inside your pants
Causing trouble for the system's much more fun!
Thank you for the toilet paper
Your flag's meaningless to me
Look around, we're all people
Who needs country's anyway?


/Lines in the sand, man, lines in the sand

And Iran, Iran so far away.

I just ran, Iran all night and day.

I couldn't get away.

If you honestly think that it would be more than a momentary "ha-ha, look at this stupid shiat" then you are probably too stupid to have a Fark account.
