it doesn't matter where turkey is located....the quiz asks for the members of NATO, an alliance of countries originally founded as a defense against the USSR after WWII

Or, as some wag said at the time, the purpose of NATO was to "keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down." (And an idle question: why aren't the enemies of US-centric quizzes complaining that the quiz refers to NATO, rather than Nato, as the Brits refer to it? You may now start fighting over that issue too.)

British English uses both Nato and NATO: it's usuallt a house style thing: the Guardian (for example) writes Nato, while other British publications write NATO.

Unfortunately, The Guardian's style guide is somewhat inconsistent these days – Nato, for example, but not Usa! And The Guardian's adherence to its own style guide is even sketchier. But then again, that's The Grauniad for you.

yeah Turkey was added to NATO because the US was worried Greece and Turkey would get taken over by Communists, and a military alliance and security would help prevent that from happening.

Also because the US wanted to put Jupiter missiles in Turkey targeting Moscow. This was the reason Krushchev placed missiles in Cuba targeting the US, leading to the Cuban Missile Crisis.

No because the North Atlantic Treaty was one treaty that was signed back in the day, when it the name made sense since every country but Italy was on the North Atlantic, plus I'm sure you could make the argument that the Mediterranean itself is in the North Atlantic Ocean. In any case NATO is a nifty name. American's don't seem to complain that America was named after Amerigo Vespucci for example

Cabot set off in a little ship called Matthew in 1497, by the summer he became the first European on record to step foot on American soil when he stepped off his boat at Labrador. This happened a good two years before Vespucci. Cabot mapped the North American coastline from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia. On board the Matthew was Richard Ameryk, there in the guise of chief patron of the voyage; such a position was held so high that there would have been the expectation that any new found land would be named after him. And so it was. see: https://history.knoji.com/who-was-america-named-after/

The Norse Viking Bjarni Herjólfsson discovered america in the year 985 and 15 years later in the year 1000 Leif Eriksson explored Helluland, Markland and Vinland, all somewhere around Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. Cabot was NOT the first European on record to step foot on american soil. Also, you probably meant american mainland, because the Caribbean (where Cristoforo Colombo / Cristobal Colon landed) is just as much america as Canada, USA, Mexico or Brazil.

You shouldn't - England is a region of the UK, and Great Britain is an island. None of them are part of NATO. You should however accept "Britain" (maybe you already do, I never bother typing anything else than UK), since that is the official short version of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, which is part of NATO.

It is actually a little surprising (to me anyway) that Malta isn't on the list, especially considering how strategically important it was during WWII anyway. It also surprises me that Finland isn't on the list, considering it's historic strife against Russia. You would think that being directly on the Soviet Union's doorstep, and after the Winter War, the Finns would have been quick to jump on the NATO bandwagon!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, and I'll continue to say it - Czechia needs to be accepted for Czech Republic, since as you can see from this article- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Name_of_the_Czech_Republic#Adoption_of_Czechia- Czechia (as I shall stubbornly refer to it as) AND the UN, no less, have recognised it as the official short name. Yet Jetpunk, worthy and authoritative website though I do believe it to be, continues to reject it. This is not Myanmar-Burma; there is negligible contention in the matter, with a legitimate government introducing it, and the wider international community accepting it. Yet Jetpunk continues to reject it. I do not know whether this is by conscious decision or simply not noticing the issue, but I humbly ask that you rectify it. (I accept that I could be wrong on certain points, and would appreciate being enlightened as to any opposition to my view).

They didn't so much decided to stay neutral. Neutrality was imposed on Austria in 1955 as a condition to regain independence in one piece rather than the Soviet zone going the way of East Germany. But nowadays they are quite fond of neutrality anyway.

Sweden prides itself on being neutral (whether they actually are neutral can be debated). NATO was formed to resist the USSR. So, by joining NATO, Sweden would get new friends, but by extension make enemies. Sweden would rather stay out of it than to join a side

Didn't try the microstates, or the traditionally neutral ones (Ireland, Sweden & Switzerland). I did try Austria, Finland & Macedonia, and was surprised that none of them were NATO members. I've now read the discussion about Austria, but didn't think that Finland would have had much love for the USSR?
reply

I think the Finland situation was (and still is?) due to Finland's close proximity with USSR/Russia and the fact that Finland was invaded during the Second World War by the Soviet Union - I assume that they didn't want to overly antagonize the Soviets, and to maintain peaceful links with both sides.
