comment How did the US/South Vietnam lose the Vietnam war?
+1 Jane Fonda. How can somebody be that cruel? Does she know how many people got slaughtered due to the war being lost? It's still not answering the question though. Even without the US, South Vietnam has about the same manpower, higher tech, and more industry. So how did they lose?

comment Evidence of cross contamination between Japanese and Western sword fighting styles?
Japanese hold their sword by 2 hand. The europeans either use one hand or 2 hands for a heavy 2 handed sword. It's 2 completely different style. How the hell they cross polinate? If there is no answer, should I turn this into one?

You mean Russia allow polygamy before christianity? But then again, christianity is the spirit of greek civilization, in a sense right. They simply change the God hood. +1. I am still wrong.

comment Why did Martin Luther hate the Jews?
+1. Comprehensive. Hell, +2 if I can. Anton Margaritha is another. Jews didn't change their believe even after they are defeated in battles and even to the point of death. They are as stubborn as any faithful people in the world. So it's natural that they don't convert. The same with christians and most religions.

comment Does prohibition of polygamy always correlate well with democracy?
Let me put it this way. Why in the earth the king of france bother prohibiting polygamy anyway? Why the king of china doesn't? Doesn't he want many girls? Doesn't his officers want many girls? So why? Maybe because the king want to appease the male populations. Why should the male populations be appeased? Because they have power nevertheless. Not exactly voting power, but rebelling power. Looks like democratic traits are stuck with mountainous geography and genes of europeans.
