I'd argue the point on question 1 some more, but I so screwed the pooch in this game that it won't matter to me anyway.

Well my evil plan was working great until that Presidential movie question. I couldn't think of the "obvious" answer.

I know I missed the last one, but I'm banking on lots of wrong answers and very few matching answers.

If people went Scandinavia or oil-rich for the last q, they probably got a right answer.

Re: Politics & World Events (Reverse) Sheep, Round 2 Electric Obama-Loo

Here are the ones allowed:

War of 1812
Mexican-American War
Spanish-American War
Barbary War
Second Barbary War

There are a few military engagements as well, but that's pretty much the whole list. No one answered the Civil War, which would've been an incorrect answer. But there were plenty of incorrect answers.

Barbary war isn't specific enough. It's either the first or second :P

I don't see why the Civil War isn't a correct answer (if somebody answered that). I assume Lincoln had authorization from Congress and it certainly wasn't informal.

Maybe next time I will actually read the question before answering with the most obvious answer I can think of.
