comment Why was Benedict Arnold liked by the Tories but scorned by the Whigs?
I'm going to vote to leave open. This is one of the core competencies of H:SE - OP can't really learn the answer from wikipedia because it relies on some underlying knowledge that isn't obvious. This is a case where we need to dramatically revise the question to clarify the confusion.

comment How much infrastructure damage has there been in Iraq, after the invasion?
While we don't have a hard line distinction between current events and history, I'd argue that historical methods are of little value if the primary source documents are still being generated.

comment Has anybody ever tried to use sea animals to pull a ship?
Very difficult to domesticate sea animals. I'm not aware of any examples. The only animals that I know of that pull ships are mules used to pull canal boats.

Moved context to the top; I think Mr. Geerkens edit made it easier to answer but harder to read; I tried to compensate.

I attempted to improve the grammar again, but I join with others in the believe that OP's common sense is not supported by historical evidence. "common sense" is a very poor form of historical research. Since there are good answers, let's leave the question open.
