THINGS TO DO BEFORE BROWSING HOTTEST QUESTIONS:

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.

comment Can we classify holocaust as Hitler's war time strategic mistake?
So by the time the Holocaust got into full swing the Nazis were facing inevitable defeat? I'm not sure that's completely true as the gassings at Auschwitz had already begun before the battle of Stalingrad.

comment Can we classify holocaust as Hitler's war time strategic mistake?
@bhau It would be best to focus this question to avoid assessment of Hitler's other "war time strategic mistakes" and ask specifically about the effect of the holocaust on the German war effort. This makes it far more answerable. That answer would help in comparing it to other decisions like the invasion of the USSR, which is a huge subjective question of vast scope.

comment Gazan attitudes to Egyptian rule 1948-1967
The PLO is like a government. It's always been a coalition of Palestinian parties, before 1967 it was dominated by the ANM and after by Fatah.

comment Gazan attitudes to Egyptian rule 1948-1967
I also understand the Arab Nationalist Movement was the dominant party in Palestine before the Six Day War when it lost ground to Fatah. This party was also a fan "Pan-Arabism" and apparently close to Nasserist factions. To conclude my guess (emphasis on guess) is Gazans were quite pro-Egypt.

comment Gazan attitudes to Egyptian rule 1948-1967
The PLO during the period (formed 1964) in question supported the Egyptian version of 'Pan-Arabism'. Here's a link to their original charter (The agenda of the website is not important here). So the PLO were in bed with Egypt, so a useful question would be: were the PLO popular in Gaza before the Six Day War?
