Iraq Place Names

Instructions: The war against Iraq brought a new awareness of Iraqi geography for most Americans. Here is a chance to see how much attention you were paying to all those maps in the news media.

For each location in the left column enter the number of the corresponding location in Iraq, as listed in the right column. If the number you enter is correct, the right answer will be copied to the adjacent box. Otherwise a "sad faced smiley" will appear in that space. NOBODY wants to deal with a "sad faced smiley"!

When all the boxes are correctly filled in, the screen will change color to show its manic enthusiasm.

The first item is done for you as an example. Some items in the list on the right may be used more than once or not used at all.

This quiz is for your own practice only; no record of your progress is kept or reported to anyone.
