comment What happens after a widespread social chaos?
+1 for the russia and hard to fix point. -1 for try out democracy. Though democracy is great and all, not all places are ready for it. Sun Yat Sen of China tried to implement a republic/democracy, and people just abused the system. In Egypt, democracy gave them an OK leader (I think his name was Nazzar) but then, they got Mubarak. If we look at the USA, and their rise to democracy, we'd notice that they had had several decades of a democracy under the Brits. In some places democracy works, In others, the culture hampers it, and I personally dont know if democracy will work in Tunisia. Sorry.

comment Were British fears of Russia using Afghanistan as a staging post for an invasion of India unfounded?
I'd say that both nations thought that it could be used, but in reality, if they had ever gon to war, the shear size of the land from India to Russia was so large, it would be a war of attrition.

Actually, it wan't riles that saved the infantry, it was the machine gun.

@Sardathrion - Useless in defense? What about a real guard action?

@DVK - I'd agree, for sources, look at the book: Born To Run.
