comment State boundaries in mountainous regions
Fair critism, I'll do my best to respond 1) Not important 2) It's not about height, it's about accessibility. There are river valleys reaching into this central mountainous region (south of the high peaks) from the north, but not from the south. These valleys can be seen to be already falling into the control of the northern houses in the map provided.

comment Which is the oldest language in the World?
Hebrew seems to be an examples of a resurrected language. Perhaps this is oldest in the sense that it is largely unchanged.

comment Instances of the UN defusing serious crises
UNEF was set up after the cease fire. The ceasefire had a lot to do with US diplomatic intervention (including Stirling Bond selling threats and a NATO oil embargo), in part due Soviet threats. I suppose it's hard to disentangle countries actions and their actions through the UN, but I think we have to see the UN role as limited (although it's a perfectly good thing to mention as an answer).

+1 I was worried you wouldn't mention ox carts.

Hopefully I've answered the question, comment if I haven't. I found it difficult to discern what the main thrust of your enquiry was.

comment Has any US President served in a government position with a foreign nation before or after their presidency?
He was still in the army so I imagine the US. Counting US control of foreign countries is sketchy, but not hugely more than counting British colonial administration as "foreign". I don't think there are any fantastic examples.

comment Did any of the US States ever attempt to secede, aside from American Civil War times?
Sometimes these aggregate or concept wikipedia pages slip us by when we're looking too specifically. I'm glad I didn't get burned over my minimal research effort to answer this question, but at least I would have learnt about the new states. @TravisChristian Good point.

I think I will answer Eisenhower, but I'm pretty sure there were more. In the US controlled far east for example. Edit: good there's another answer with that in it.
