comment Why did native Americans and Europeans mix in South America but not in North America?
I heard this was due to the policy of Catholic church compared to Protestants.

comment Italian History from 1870-1913: Why did Italy have such a hard time becoming a Great Power like Germany
If the question still was open I would have a good answer. I downvoted the existing one.

comment What advantages have motorized infantry enjoyed over standard infantry besides speed?
@RI Swamp Yankee there are special reconnaissance vehicles. Of course they can be attached to an infantry unit, but they are not what typical motorized infantry consists of. Motorized infantry are people+armored transporters.

@RI Swamp Yankee you are wrong, motorized infantry is always deployed on foot when engaged. There is no purpose of keeping numbers of people inside transporters.

@T.E.D. The inspection of 1710 discovered such facts. What is not clear here? The third "it" refers to such practice.

comment What corrections did the Catholic church make to the Copernicus work “De revolutionibus”?
Thanks, very interesting. It seems the essence of the theory was not actually removed. The first removed paragraph is political, the second correction states an evident fact, the third correction simply makes the language more scientific rather than religious, only the last change underlines it is just a hypothesis.

@T.E.D. yes. As I said these facts were discovered in the course of an inspection. Is not it clear from the answer?

@user37324 of course Cyrus as all rulers throughout the world had to show his generosity to the conquered peoples so to have them content and loyal. Some other kings of the time were throwing money to the crowd so to show how generous they are.

So this bold text is supposed to be human-rights related? In fact the sentence praises Cyrus for not pillaging the conquered cities.
