Great quiz! I think the last one might be a mistake, it doesn't border the one before it.

Why does Colonel Gaddafi have his title spelt with a small "c", and with quote marks around colonel, as if he was somehow not a real colonel? Me thinks your dislike for the guy is getting in the way of factual quizmaking! At least he had the modesty to be ranked below general, brigadier and several other possible higher ranks!

Did he not appoint himself "Colonel" after the coup? Just because he had military training doesn't mean that it was a justly earned rank, and foregoing a larger fake rank of "general" is not really something to admire in the guy.

Gheddafi was not a colonel. He self-appointed himself as such in 1969, during the military coup that gave him the power.
