comment If modern human existed for hundreds of thousands years why was writing invented only some 7000-9000 years ago?
There are two theories on how evolution works; one is that changes happen over a long period of time, a mutation occurs, the mutation doesn't kill the creature, but instead helps it, so the mutation gets passed on, and after 100000 years, the entire species has the mutation. The other theory is that something in the environment forces a many random mutations in the species, and the ones that worked get passed on. I'm not an expert in the period you are talking about, but, I'd guess that something changed in the environment and caused a mutation in the human brain to allow writing.

comment Why do minor political parties in the US receive so few votes?
Because no one in the USA knows the unknown candidates. I've never heard of Gloria La Riva.

comment If the Iraq War was because of their oil, has the US achieved their war aims
China and Russia both vetoed action in Syria because they didn't want America to think that they could over-through any government they felt like. +1.

comment What happens after a widespread social chaos?
You speak of political freedom as if its holy and of utmost importance, and yet, many states might be benefited by a benevolent dictator. There is a difference between Democracy and Constitutional Liberalism, the first, used to select a leader, and the next, the idea of protecting rights. In Hong Kong, a Special Administrative Region of China, people don't vote for their Chief Executive, (there are a group of 1000 people from various industries who vote) but yet, it is very good at protecting peoples rights.

comment What kind of heavy horses did the Manchu use?
Oh ya, and at times, infantry weapons were longer, and at times they were shorter, till finally, everyone used guns. Hypothesis, Antithesis, Synthesis.

comment What kind of heavy horses did the Manchu use?
In the west, knights "couched" their lances meaning that they just aimed their lace at the infantry and braced it. Cavalry's power didn't come from the lance, but their ability to smash through the enemy ranks, create a hole, let the infantry exploit it, and run down the routers. In Agincourt, the English won because the French cavalry couldn't get enough momentum from their cavalry to smash enemy lines. Cavalry isn't there to be in a prolonged fight, but instead used as shock troops, meaning that all that mattered was the horse hitting and braking a hole in the enemy ranks.

Based on the info you've gathered, I'd say George III did.
