The correct answer is
The violent takeover of the island was headed by Communist-backed Bernard Coard.

Grenada is located in the Caribbean so it's not related to the middle east or Afghanistan. US officials were endangered there after a violent coup in the country so the United States decided to intervene and fix what they thought was problematic. They won in the end.
