For me, Iran. I never even considered Japan. I thought of Iran, Iraq, and India.

Iraq does not jump out to people as "Asia"; we don't think of Iraqis as asians, they're Arabs, and they're from the middle east. Asians makes us think of Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam, etc.

The Middle East doesn't jump out to Americans/sheep as Asia? That's the first I've heard of that.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

When you hear your national anthem, do you stand up proud and erect? You do if you live in a country where your national anthem is:


The Star-Spangled Banner
Mordred
funkpie
maxfisher
Fist of Doom


The Song of the Italians
Tommy Ceez
Thor Simpson
wendersfan
the big train


La Marseillaise
JasonF
Scrumtrulescent
wishbone
Merkin Muffley


God Save the Queen
achau9598
Groucho
Red Dog


Oh, Canada
CRM114
Palaver
Tracer Bullet

My first thought was Iraq. But I figured that I had to farther east to be sheepish. I just didn't go east enough.

Not all of the "Middle East" is even in Asia. Egypt would commonly be considered part of it, yet Egypt is (mostly) in Africa.
