    Here are some guidlines:
    One person will post a map and the others will attempt to guess what the map is or what it means. Once someone guesses it they will be presented the opportunity to post their own map. If they do not want to then they should indicate open floor to everyone else.

    If no new map is posted within a day's time of guessing the old map, it is again open floor. You may create your own map, but make sure the source material is accurate.

    I will start us off.

    Nagasaki's atomic bomb museum actually has a counter similar to that map. I believe they also included North Korea's.

    That map's timeline goes from 1945-1998. I had to remove it or it would have been too obvious - but apparently it was anyways with a first guess ;)

    That map is eerily similar to the countries in NATO.

    Countries contributing to the war in Afghanistan? I know Mongolia jumped in a few years ago, and I think the Dutch pulled out right before Canada was about to...

    Yeah most of the USA's allies declared the 9/11 attacks "An attack on the USA". (Well at least NATO did) and they could use the defense clause of the charter.

    I'm always amused by how many non-Atlantic members NATO actually contains. :)

    Some of the countries aren't officially part of NATO.

    Australia and South Korea have separate defence treaties with the United States.

    The European countries which are not part of NATO are part of the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council, which is a NATO initiative. They're not bound to defend NATO members by treaty; their participation can be seen as kissing up to the United States with a view to join NATO in the future.

    The UAE and New Zealand aren't NATO either, but they can be considered friends of the United States (though neither are bound to the United States by treaty anymore). Singapore is mostly in support roles.

    Mongolia just wants to join in. It's lonely over there on the steppes.

    New map! I've removed the units from the scale, the ones that are there are relative. Shouldn't be too tough.
