comment Looking for historical names of Sea's mountains rivers
Please be more specific, what places are you looking for? I doubt there is a place on the internet where they have a huge collection of obsolate map object names, maybe fragments. For example in Hungary many places have old Roman names, Dacian name, old Hungarian etc... you can imagine the amount of work needed for a worldwide database.

to be more precise, there are other western countries (South-American namely) which still use death penalty

comment How did the United States penal system evolve?
I didn't downvote and won't, I am thinking of a close vote, I think the question is to broad, one with the correct answer could (and should) write a book in this subject. It has many factors like private prisons, effect of capital punishment, social issues, law enforcement and lawyer culture. I would start the answer with these issues, but they are all one universe separately, I don't think a "good and short" answer exists. I am waiting a little with close vote since I can be wrong, maybe somebody can summarize these things.

nah, I ran into the trap voting myself to close, but at least I can see now who can give answer.

I would appreciate to read the offtopic marker's reason, I can imagine it is pretty much politics too, but it has strong bindings to History. Please explain!

They both wars are still going on without peace. So there are no official end of the conflicts, they have only truce, which means they might start fighting all over again if some serious issue happens. Unlike for example the war between Japan and Montenegro or Germany and Andorra.

I wanted to exclude it, since it is not a result of diplomatic anomaly, it is a real ongoing war without peace. I would like to see more with official end, but with a special case why is that war still going on. In Korea there is a truce signed, not peace.

@jwenting that's why I call them anomalies of diplomacy. In case of Andorra, they just forgot to invite them since they didn't really fight, just declared war.

comment Has there ever been a truly multi-sided war?
I would point out the crusades as maybe a potential candidates. While european forces went to the holy land, there were wars in Europe.

comment Why did Hitler attack the Soviet Union when he was still busy fighting the United Kingdom?
The answer is wrong. Hitler has serious issues of getting the real picture of the world only in the last days of war. In the early years of war he was sane and were fully capable to make strategic decisions.

Somehow I suspect shield evolved with the blunt weapons and sharp poles. I will try to find evidence when I go home.
