I keep hearing this "fact" that back then it was low (30% or so but made up statistics do tend to vary), especially in the context of it now being higher. Interesting question.

comment Why didn’t Britain use its vast navy to get past trench warfare?
The British would probably have need to capture a port for any serious attacks. The Zeebrugge Raid shows that these were not undefended.

"These campaigns" is a link to Gallipoli Campaign and "wiki" was to Naval warfare of World War I. Just to be clearer this time.

Ah sorry, it isn't helpful when I used ambigous markdown links.

@Luke The Admiralty didn't rate U-boats (wiki), It is a valid point though that any landing may have been contested by the German surface fleet. These campaigns can go horribly when there isn't an enemy fleet though , and when you land somewhere far less defended that Germany.

comment What is the evidence for North Korean famine of 1990s?
@Sardathrion Okay, I think you're correct. I think Anixx should improve the question. Also Anixx shouldn't state false equivalences between DPRK officials and US senators. I do think a broadly similar question should exist, wikipedia is not the be all and end all and in it's citations lack a perspective from the Chinese border. Also rejecting given that the answer is contained in the citation of the wikipedia page (rather than the page itself) seems a bit harsh for this site.

@Sardathrion If this question has a problem it is that the second paragraph waves away most legitimate sources, not that the answer is on wikipedia.

comment Has there ever been an attempted military takeover of a democracy in the western world?
You could also start with looking at this wikipedia page: List of revolutions and rebellions. Which is an incomplete, but still quite large, list of what you are interested in. Other good links are the ones given by RI Swamp Yankee.
