No.

It's a well-known fact that we suck at Geography.

Get out of here, Limey, or well invade Australia and take over your little backwater country.

I believe Ambrose Bierce said that "War is God's way of teaching American's geography"

Guess he needs to try harder...

No shit.

When you guys invaded Bosnia every European country beginning with B shit itself.   Belgium had bunting and the Stars and Stripes flying within 30 minutes just in case you landed in France again and headed east.  Bulgaria evacuated all over itself, and Belarus retreated behind Moscow.  Being British we just put the kettle on and made a cup of tea, then constructed a massive arrow out of stone age penis ornaments that pointed the EU Parliament in the vain hope that you'd level the fucking place.

You missed.

DAMN you I came to post that EXACT map!!

The simple answer is that geography is really not taught in US public (government run) schools anymore.  I have frequently seen wall maps with Egypt and Syria labeled as United Arab Republic still in use (U.A.R. = vintage 1958 to 1961).
