comment How has Chinese GDP as a percentage of world GDP changed over time and why?
That's a very good answer. I think western experiment with capitalism also explains why the rest of the world are getting richer. I want something more comprehensive. Notice that this mean even during colonization, the peak of western civilization, china weren't that bad.

comment Why did Saladin show kindness to Richard I?
It's not about morality. Saladin has enemies within islam as well as crusader. Those we think are our enemies are not necessarily harmful and those we think are friends are not necessarily useful. Giving a horse is but a trivial cost. It gets Richard out, and it saves tons of lives. Good bargain.

comment How did the US/South Vietnam lose the Vietnam war?
Even if the south are just as unmerciful as the north, they are still better because they are capitalists. So what, if millions of commies die? Better them than us. Also who says capitalists are not merciful?

comment Arab population of Palestine pre-1880
Actually why does UN define refugee as someone coming within 2 years of 1948 anyway? I mean that's kind of short. If some guy has been there for hundreds of years and got kicked out like Muhammad kicking out Banu Nadir, that's an issue. But 2 years? C'mon. Just find another job and got cash for the land or something.

Why tension raise due to land purchase? Land seizing cause tension is something I can understand. Land purchase?

You mean a military general in Egypt could not think of a possibility that their jets will be bombarded while in the ground?

The political implication can means peace by the way. If we stick with reality rather than fairy tales things may work better, or worse...

comment What is the basis for the claims that the word “Israel” means “Exiled for their sins”?
Bible claims can be coroborated from hebrew language. The el simply means God. Isra means fighting I guess.

Jews claim that the land is effectively worthless desert before they come back. Also it is indeed worthless desert. It's the jews that make it rich.

I love this question. It fits contemporary-history. It's an awesome stackexchange. What do you mean by history is failing. How can I help?
