yeah and how many ukrainians are able to identify burma, peru or nigeria on a map? not saying those countries have the geopolitical status and influence of iran, but poor geographical knowledge isn't exclusive to the us.
i think an adult person in a developed country should people to correctly locate iran on a map regardless of its frequency on the news, just like they should be able to correctly locate peru, nigeria and burma.
Iran broadcasting in news 24/7 they should at least know on what continent is it
Your countries doesn't broadcast anywhere at all
If somebody told Americans to find Angola and they made this shit, it would be even a meme
what are the practical implications of being able to pinpoint iran on a map for the average citizen? none. just like with peru, burma and nigeria. i however do think it's key in gaining an adequate amount of general knowledge
