While I think the situation in the Ukraine is alarming, I also think that there is very little the US can (or should) do about it. I don’t know if that is because I know where the Ukraine is on a map but it seems clear there might be some relation.
In a very interesting survey, the Washington Post found that the less you knew about the Ukraine, the more likely you were to think we should get involved.
The map in the article shows where respondents placed the Ukraine on a map. It’s pretty troubling when you see that more than one person chose Australia. Or Greenland.
Now, there is a possibility some of these people were dickishly selecting the wrong location just to skew numbers.
Even allowing for that, people are forming opinions about something they know nothing about. I’ll bet if they were educated about the situation, though, they wouldn’t change their minds. People are dumb that way.
