comment What reasons did the Confederacy have for believing they would have a quick victory?
@JonofAllTrades I can't find the book I have read that in, but you can find that in many sources civilwar.org/resources/…, americancivilwar.com/authors/arrturo_rivera.html

comment Why did Stalin push for the Great Purge against the Red Army in 1936?
Your book is obvious repetition of the Chrushev's version of history - written by a gang of killers, defending themselves by putting all on their leader. Respected communist guards? They were absolutely same murderers. Simply Stalin happened to be cleverer and won over them. Their winning would result in even more victims, due to less intelligence with same lack of morals. They were all communists who killed these tens of millions of people. Stalin killed no one personally...

Yes, he made absolutely necessary steps - for his own power sake.

@T.E.D. According to my reference, the Formosa hypothesis is obsolete, too. Genetic tests prove that. so, they are NOT corrabortion, but disprovement of your variant.

Sorry to all - according to recent genetics data, Polynesians descend from Bismark island Micronesians that descent from mainland Asia. sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/02/110203124726.htm

comment What type of opportunity seemed to be the most prevalent in attracting immigrants?
religion, political views, money/land, hunger, pure survival, climate change - all of them sometimes become the main reason.

comment Would the USA staying out of WWI have prevented WWII?
Extremely interesting thought! +1. But America HAD to enter the war. Because France and England lent more and more money and USA couldn't let its debtors lose. So the hypothetical situation could happen only if USA gave money and weapon to both sides during all the war. But this way the Germany would definitely win. And the whole situation could repeat, only with the change of sides - Social revolution in Austria, Fascism in France and so on.

comment Why did the US insist on invading Japan instead of blockading it in WWII?
@Alex The Japan-Soviet treaty was dissolved 1 day before Hiroshima. And if attacking the Japan by land was a mistake, what was the second bombing then? ... Nobody thought on A-bombing as a final stroke then. Nobody knew what it means.

@PieterGeerkens And notice, her wreckage was the result of grounding, not lose of stability.
