ACTION ALERT: IRAN: Who Is the Real Threat? Take the Test


January 26, 2012
The World Can't Wait

In 2007, when the Bush regime was threatening to attack Iran, (with substantially the same justification the US is now using to impose sanctions on Iran), World Can't Wait circulated a "history lesson" quiz on dozens of college campuses and street corners. Most people flunked. Students on the "elite" campuses also did terribly. Take the test: If you answer all 7 questions correctly, you'll win the first-ever World Can't Wait surprise quiz prize.

IRAN: Who Is the Real Threat?
Take the Test

The World Can't Wait

(January 25, 2012) -- In 2007, when the Bush regime was threatening to attack Iran, with substantially the same justification that the US is now using to impose sanctions, carry out secret operations, and prepare the population for more war, World Can't Wait made a quiz. We administered it on dozens of college campuses, and on street corners.

Students, including on the "elite" campuses, did terribly. Most flunked. But it got quite a few to think. We're offering it again, updated, and now online. I'm encouraging you to take the quiz.

If you answer all 7 questions correctly, and provide a mailing address, you'll get the first-ever World Can't Wait quiz prize (it's a surprise). I just want to know if you've been paying attention, and to convince you how effective asking people questions is when you want to help them learn.
