comment Clear picture of casaulties of Jewish people under third reich
While this may answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Links can and do go dead. And in fact, it appears the first link has already bitten the dust.

comment What were Hitler's religious beliefs?
The Wikipedia article has changed quite a bit since this answer was posted. That's one reason relying on it can be problematic.

comment If Bill Clinton was impeached, why did he finish up his second term
Andrew Johnson (president from 1865-1869, following Lincoln's assassination) was also impeached by the House but acquitted by the Senate. No president has ever been convicted by the Senate.

comment Any suggestions on a book about the Roman conquest of Greece
Book recommendation questions are generally not a good fit for the Q&A system.

comment Which country ruled Flanders in the 16th century?
Wikipedia has maps of Flanders in 1400 and in 1609, and the history is covered pretty well in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Flanders. I'd answer this question if I wouldn't be getting all my info straight from Wikipedia.

comment Who was the last US president who did not start a war?
Indeed. Technically, only Congress can declare war, and that hasn't happened since 1941.

comment What Land Runs were there in the U.S., and were the Indians paid for their land?
@xpda: Yes, the 1893 run was larger, but you covered it in the question so I left it out. It also did not have the population density that the first run did, as far as I can tell. There were no land runs in the US outside Oklahoma, as I mentioned in the last sentence.

comment Historically accurate WW2 simulation
It would be off topic. I think chat is the best place for game recommendation questions.

comment Why did the Dutch, French & British acquire minor colonies in South America?
@WladimirPalant: 215 km² is nearly the size of the UK, but it's a third the size of France (643 km²).

comment Why was Caesar at the Rubicon?
The Rubicon was on the way home from Gaul, but I can't find a reference that says he stopped at the Rubicon, so I can't answer your question as written.

comment What factors related to the Eastern Crisis contributed to the outbreak of World War 1?
Please elaborate a bit on "Eastern Crisis". I know it's easily googled, but questions should be at least mostly self-contained.
