As a sub-2000 user, I can't edit your question in order to remove the downvote.

comment Has a state ever “attacked” another one by printing fake money?
I think the problem is, the nature of the subject lends to speculative questions (and answers). Sometimes even well researched pieces will contain some amount of speculation. Granted, my question wasn't particularly well researched. But I think there should be more leeway when the question being asked doesn't have an obvious answer.

I will vote down almost any answer that contains "it is commonly believed...." - that is a signal of conspiracy theory, poor research, and an ill formed answer. Coupled with "I don't see any information" and you've guaranteed a downvote.

comment Why is Christopher Columbus credited for “discovering” America?
Sorry, but I don't buy this. Is there any evidence that Columbus "published" his results more than the Vikings? The Vikings established a colony in the Americas, that should be as good as anything Columbus did. Columbus was also wrong in his theory. A huge fallacy in your argument is that you are applying modern scientific criteria to a time when most people thought the Earth was flat.

comment Why was Africa never really colonized?
What exactly is your definition of "colonized"? Because I was under the impression that the majority of the African continent was under European control in the 19th century.

comment What were Hitler's religious beliefs?
Hate to say it, but I have to agree with Hitler on this one: "Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure."

comment Why weren't aircraft carriers utilized during D-day?
Why would you need aircraft carriers if you have friendly bases nearby? Carriers can be sunk, England can't.
