comment Why did Great Britain switch its alliance to France?
@JonStory: Semaphore demonstrated that Britain allied with France against Spain several times. There was also a "reversal of alliances" Britain-Austria vs. France and Prussia in the 1740s, and vice-versa in the 1750s. Not to say that Britain did this every single time; only that this was her tendency. So Britain wouldn't necessarily ally with others against an "arguably" stronger Prussia or Spain, but mainly against a "clear and present" danger.

@Semaphore: The Communists were better GUERRILLA fighters than the Nationalists. Even if they were (initially) inferior in conventional warfare.

comment Did it make sense for the Roman Empire to build a great wall?
I made the question more objective by asking if it made sense to build a wall in the first place, and vote to re=open.
