comment Did pirates really drink a lot of rum?
I see the question has been edited to one about the accuracy of the association between rum and the golden age of piracy. I think this is on topic now.

comment Was the US's pre-emptive bombardment of Iwo Jima insufficient?
This needs clarification. I'm not really sure what's being asked, and if the questions that are here can be objectively answered. This is interesting subject matter and the question shows research, so it would be especially nice if OP could hammer this into an in-scope question.

comment How many Axis troops fought on D-Day?
I think in the questions current state it should be left closed. There may be an interesting angle on how the forces were deployed, or on the tooth to tail ratio of axis forces in Normandy. However, the question has not be edited in a way that suggests it after any other answer than the simple one (50,000 for d-day, 380,000 for the battle for Normandy: check wikipedia). This should remain closed.

comment Why travel to one's birthplace for a Roman census?
@SamuelRussell No. Claims about history are not made theology by proximity to Jesus. However, if there is a "why is part of the bible made up" part to the OP's question, I happily pass that onto another discipline (but perhaps onto a rigorous humanity rather than merely a worthy one)

Well, there is a $25m bounty on Bin Laden's successor Ayman Al-Zawahiri. Might be the same money? Nevertheless, the U.S. State Department has not run out of people to place bounties on just yet.
