    The District of Columbia existed before the nation of Colombia, so does that mean Colombia must belong to the US?

    Columbia is traditionally an honored name going back to Roman times. Washington DC is honored as the nation's capital. Colombia in South America also is named for the honorable Columbia of ancient times.

    It's not a term that is related to that country.

    It's a term related to Christopher Columbus.

    Columbia means America.

    And America is a term related to Vespucci.

    Did you study any USA or American history?

    The south American nation is Colombia, not Columbia. The US capital District, Washington, District of Columbia, is the Capital of the United States of America.

    were you purposely trying to bait some of the "usuals" who think that "conservative" and "liberal" only have one universal meaning too?

    It's Colombia, but I think you knew that and are trying to be clever.  Next, you'll ask "why do people on the West Coast of South America speak with a Southern US accent?  There's a skinny country called 'chile'."

    The Latin American nation is Colombia, not Columbia, dear.

    Of course, you knew that. Try to find some sharper way to troll.
