comment When people use spears to fight cavalry do infantry stab the horse or the rider?
@Jim Thio Generally the whole point of cavalry is exploiting the fact that "it's so difficult for an infantry to move around" (on both the tactical scale and the operational scale). Otherwise you'd be better off with only infantry - they cost less and eat less.

comment Evolution of United States' world role?
Any sources for how "export of F-T" could increase US power alone? I fail to see this. Wasn't it just a matter of capital ownership (the "neo-colonialism"), followed optionally by the export of F-T?

comment What factors contributed to the U.S economy flourishing during the early cold war period?
The production is high, the consumption is high (as this includes army consumption). What is not really relevant for the "economy" is the well-being of civilians.

Byzantines still maintained the Forum, at least until 608, when they built their last monument there (Phokas column).

comment About the reasons for the US involvement in WW2 in Europe
If, as you say, US aimed to maintain German/Soviet balance in Europe, as of June 1944 they would have switch Lend-Lease to help Germans against Soviet Union, instead of invading Normandy. The invasion on Normandy, so late in the war, indicates that they were very much interested in fighting Germans; so "just conquer" and not "divide and conquer".
