American Civil War? Also can you accept Spanish War and Mexican War? Missed Great Pyramids because it's the only one in that block without an underline prompt - I should look harder next time!

The American Civil War is not included because it wasn't considered an international declaration of war as the Confederacy wasn't officially recognized by anyone other than themselves.

"Declared" is the key word here. In 2003 and 1991 there was no declaration of war by the US against Iraq; in Korea and Vietnam the US government didn't recognize the northern, communist governments so there was no declaration of war. The CSA was, as has already been pointed out not recognized, so no declaration. The Revolutionary War was just that - a revolution, not an international conflict between two established nations. In Afghanistan the ostensible conflict involved the US giving support to overthrow the Taliban, not an openly declared conflict between the US and Afghanistan.

Agreed - North Korea is not by any measure officially communist anymore. Juche is its official state ideology. The ruling party is the Korean Workers Party, no mention of communism and all remaining references to communism have been scrapped. North Korea should be removed from the answer.

I also missed the Great Pyramids because the line was blank when all others had words and blanks in them, and I just didn't see it. Could you perhaps write it as, " ___ _____ of ___" to keep it consistent with the others? (Although with 44% getting it correct, it doesn't seem to be a huge problem for others.) Great quiz, BTW.

I think the whole point is that there was no formal declaration of war with Korea or Vietnam. It's just that congress authorised military action

I also thought of Timur the Lame. He was arguably as great as Temujin or Kublai, though how does one gauge such a thing? Most historians would probably rank him 3rd.

Timur had his own empire; he was not a Mongol, he fought against the Mongols.

Shouldn't Al-Andalus be listed as an Iberian Peninsula "country" at that time?
reply
delete
Nov 17, 2014
I looked it up. Al-Andalus appears to be a somewhat generic term that refers to Muslim-occupied Spain over a period of several hundred years. The actual nation at the time was the Emirate of Granada.

The Caliphate of Cordoba collapsed in the 12-1300s, splintering into a series of taifa kingdoms which were consolidated into Castille y Leon and Aragon, leaving only the Emirate of Granada as the last remaining Muslim kingdom in Iberia

Also, many other greek cities fought alongside Sparta in the Peloponnesian League against Athens. And could you accept Al-Andalus for Granada?

Tried umpteen variations on the Great Pyramid of Giza and finally gave up. Turns out the quiz only accepts "Pyramids." The answer should be singular. While there are three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis only the Great Pyramid is one of the Seven Wonders. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Pyramid_of_Giza.)

should Andorra be considered a country in the Iberian peninsula?
reply

Aug 30, 2016
(62)
It should, as it's entirely located in the Southern slopes of the Pyrenees and it was (more or less) an independent country since 1278. In fact, the entire question it's a bit of a mess, because the "crown of Aragon" was not a country, but a group of countries in personal union including the the Principality of Catalonia, the kingdom of Aragon and the kingdom of Valencia.
