Awesome that certain countries keep changing their place names insisting that it's so foreigners pronounce it "correctly" by using an irrational sequence of letters.

Must be too early in the morning. I Tried Sanya (and various spellings) for a full minute before I realized my mind had jumped to the wrong island.

Not very fair to refer to Assad as "brutal" considering the subjectivity of the issue...

It's virtually certain that he used chemical weapons on his own people. Brutal seems fair.

assad has demolished all its chemical weapons. therefore the source is certainly foreign and probably used by foreign terrorist backed by western powers. you can find a famous sample of clip in in which terrorists are boasting about their chemical capabilities.

dear Henceforth516! don't be stupid. Collin Powell and Tony Blair made fool of American and British people by lying ruthlessly about chemical weapons in Iraq and it became clear that all was wrong.

@Jamesgoatcher: Agreed, quizmaster has politicized the quiz unnecessarily. How about a quiz about objective facts? Downrated.

I accidentally typed in "swagon" instead of "Saigon", then wondered why it didn't work

Assad being brutal is a stereotype

One could easily make an argument claiming that Assad is not brutal USA is in Assad's own country trying to overthrow him, a democratically elected president. US media is obviously going to be heavily biased on stories they write about him.

Democratically elected??? You can't call an election in which nobody is allowed to run against the son of the previous President democratic

You really make my brain to explode. Have US and UK find anything chemical in Iraq?!!! They devastated Iraq for a ruthless lie. They ruined Libya and crushed their Arabian Spring! They are backing Hamad tyranny in Bahrain and neglecting the people because they are against western intervention! over 1,000,000 people are affected by cholera and many died in Yemen while they deny to condemn democratically governed!!! Saudi Arabia. Israel is constantly bombing targets in Syria, Lebanon, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and doing terrorist acts in Iran, Iraq, UAE, and other countries while has over 200 nuclear warheads while USA and its companions are condemning Iran for an imaginary WMD program and intervening in other countries!!!

'azhfandak'........ as an undoubted enemy of the 'West', I don't think you should spend time on jetpunk as your 'Brain to explode' will be a regular occurrence. Try to find a quiz or discussion site that agrees more with your anti-western opinions and find peace there.

Didn't realize that mace is a spice. Never tried cooking with it. I wonder how effective clover is if you spray it in the face of a would-be mugger?

If Syria is the country ruled by the brutal Assad, which country is ruled by the not-so-brutal Assad? The hint would be just fine as "Country ruled by Assad".

That's like complaining about the clue for Siberia because there is no "vast humid region of Eastern Russia" and it's possible to get it without pointing out that the place is cold ... the adjectives add color to the clues and makes the quiz less boring to take.

I don’t think calling Assad brutal is fair. He is just trying to keep the country out of civil war. Killing some people is the lesser of two evils here

People want change and he’s killing those who want change. That’s the definition of brutal, tyrranical and undemocratic.
