comment How did the US/South Vietnam lose the Vietnam war?
@DVK: The Phoenix program killed between 26,000 and 41,000 people. A great way to win the hearts of the people. :-(

comment What was the most recent country to be conquered and dissapear
@fdb: The SU did not permit anything in the GDR after 1989-11-09 - they simply let the people decide their own fate and could not have stopped them even if it wanted to.

comment What currently existing IT companies collaborated with Nazi Germany or Fascist Italy?
The number of "IT companies" existing at 1945-05-08 is rather small, and IBM is probably the only one of them currently existing.

comment What were the reasons for the Renaissance / scientific revolution in Europe?
@JimThio: But it was much slower: "European printing presses of around 1600 were capable of producing 3,600 impressions per workday. By comparison, movable type printing in the Far East, which did not know presses and was solely done by manually rubbing the back of the paper to the page, did not exceed an output of forty pages per day."
