Closest location with similar name is Cares around 200 km East from that point.

what's interesting is that 99.9% of their dwindling number of viewers would think that the above was a spelling mistate

I half expected them to be showing Caen, but they can't even get the right frickin' country.

And there are videos that say FoxNews makes you stupid. When will people realize it's the entire MSM that make you stupid?

Only ZH makes you smart!!!

Smart? If you'd been following closely you'd have noticed that they've been kicking Cannes down the road for months...

Hey, Americans are not all geographically challenged, buddy.

I, for example, can tell you immediately that Cannes is the capitol of France, and that Moscow is the capitol of Belarus.

Im stunned with this overwhelming knowledge of Belarus as a country. You must have  geography Ph.D in USA!  Your 100K+ salary is well earned! :D

Actually, I am not as stunningly brilliant as I appear to be.

For example -- I can easily find BielaRus on a map -- but I can never find ChernoRus! 

I know it must be around there somewhere.

Ron Paul’s view on foreign aid: Take money from the non-rich people of a rich nation to give to the rich people of a non-rich nation.

Of course Dr. Paul does not support that current practice, he is just explaining our current system of foreign aid.  Please give the United States a chance to survive, vote for Ron Paul in 2012.

Ron Paul's postion is NO foreign aid, period.

He said foreign aid currently is taking money from poor people and giving it to rich people, so that's his 'view' (i.e. opinion on foreign aid as it currently exists), but its not his 'position' (no foreign aid).


Your comment is ambigious, either by design or by stupidity.

I suppose Cannes rhymes with San Sebastian, which is reasonably close to the plotted location. Coversely, perhaps CNN just reflects that a majority of Americans couldn't even locate Texas on map of the US. Good luck.

Looks like the optics on my AR-15. Place the dot on the thing you want to drop.

Since Spain is a member of PIIGS is CNN sending a secret code to the bond vigilantes to lock and load and enter the free fire zone that is Europa.
