comment some world leaders belong to secret societies and intelligence agencies true?
"secret societies" are by their very nature secret, including membership. ALL claims like yours are conspiracy theories. Illuminati anyone? And you're doing yourself no favours openly claiming all world leaders were created by secret societies and conspiracies.

This question appears to be off-topic because we don't discuss or condone conspiracy theories

comment Did the State of Israel fail in it's main purpose?
@fdb no, there was some migration always. The Ottoman occupation and persecution of the Holy Land caused a major pogrom that led to the mass migration and establishment of large Jewish communities in many major European cities.

comment At the end of WWII, were nazis working on any other super weapon besides V-2?
just as interesting, they describe a hollow pit design, which the US introduced into their weapons only several years after the war, mainly because of manufacturing problems.

@user2357 that was a problem more with the manufacturing than the design. As we're in the realm of speculation as to what might have been, we can speculate they could have manufactured higher quality goods as well.

comment How could a chariot work against a phalanx?
correct. Charriots would use their mobility to flank an enemy formation and strike it from the sides or rear with arrows or javelins.

comment Did the State of Israel fail in it's main purpose?
you can also argue that without the holocaust Israel would never have been founded. Or that if the Ottomans had been driven out earlier there'd have been no Jewish migration to Europe...

comment Why can we have New York back?
this isn't about history, but about the current state of New York. It's not a nice place (though New Yorkers no doubt disagree).

comment How to explain the Khalkhin Gol outcome in view of Soviet weakness and Japanese strength at that time?
and don't forget that the purges meant for quite a few military people that they were sent into permanent assignment in the far east rather than being shot. Thus the far east got more than a few of the senior officers purged from the western army units.

comment WWI : odds to cross the man's land alive
@PieterGeerkens they were fools in believing that 18th century chivalry has a place in WW1 trench warfare. They seemed to come around after a few million people died following their instructions and started writing more modern combat manuals...

comment Etymology of Pine Street in San Francisco
And there must be hundreds of "Rembrandt street"s in the Netherlands where the painter never could have visited let alone lived simply because the towns (or the streets) didn't exist while the man was alive.

comment WWI : odds to cross the man's land alive
even then, it'd be a very broad selection of possible scenarios. Geography, weather, effectiveness of the preparatory bombardment, time of day, stage of the campaign/battle, etc. etc.

and how could there have been without even an indication of what the vehicle would be to get the passengers there and back, let alone the infrastructure?

@PieterGeerkens they acted foolishly, but not because they were fools. They acted as they had been drilled to act, acting any different would have gotten them killed as well, just by a firing squad after a quick court martial. The training regimen for British (and American) troops was so rigid and foolish that many things that are just common sense were subject to get you reprimanded or worse. Things like ducking under fire, firing from cover, etc. etc. were considered "ungentlemanly" and not allowed... Call the authors of those training manuals fools, not the people who acted on that training
