comment Why were people from the Asian Steppes able to militarily dominate Europeans on a repeated basis?
I do not buy this. -1 It is well known that it was Europe where the most advanced weapons of the time were developed. Starting from the times of the Roman Empire the best body armor and ballistic weapons were produced in Europe. The competition was very high with Italian and German armor considered the best, covering nearly whole body. European crossbows were the most powerful ranged weapons of the time. Wars also were quite frequent in Europe with many people being professional warriors.

comment How true is the statement “Soviet troops got into Berlin riding American trucks, walking in American boots and using American trains”?
-1 entirely for the bullshit 5th point. The USSR ended the war with much more troops than it had at any point. Also, how one can compare 1943 to 1945? And even in 1943 there was no threat of a collapse, the only such threat was in 1941.

@romkyns not only uses, but recently those imperial units were forced on Russia and CIS, who previously used meters.

comment Why did Britain and France not declare war against the Soviet Union when it invaded Poland in WW2?
@Felix Goldberg Britain would be in a very foolish situation if it declared war on the USSR in defense of Poland without Poland doing the same. The fact that Poland did not declare war indicates that they did not want the British doing the same all the more.
