It's "Colombia" actually, not "Columbia". At least that you like that way even when it's incorrect (as in the Myanmar situation).

Fixed the spelling of Colombia. Thanks! And by Myanmar, do you mean Burma?

The more accurate term of reference is Myanmar, not Burma. Burma is an antiquated historical name, the official name of the country is the "Republic of the Union of Myanmar", unless you want to make a political statement that you don't recognize the current junta's rule. Similarly to how India changed names like Bombay and Calcutta to Mumbai and Kolkata, Burma changed its name to Myanmar following independence. That said, although some nations officially refer to it as Burma, the UN and many other nations officially refer to it as Myanmar. So, in fact, Myanmar is the more accurate name.

Could not spell Danzig correctly, tried it every way but the correct (English) way. Maybe Gdansk should be acceptable.
