Feel free to post your own answer @Anix, I'd be very interested in reading it, especially if you take the time to back those claims.

If you feel my edits were unnecessary, you can always roll them back @Cbaker510.

No, none of this has any place in Meta Politics. I realize you're frustrated, but please leave our site out of this (Politics mod here).

That's quite a stretch @fdb. Furthermore, if the question is on topic, why does it matter what's the motivation behind it?

comment Who founded Rome?
From the site's help center: "If you are not comfortable with the idea of your contributions being collaboratively edited by other trusted users, this may not be the site for you." You consistently resist people trying to improve your questions. Perhaps it's time to consider moving somewhere else for your history questions.

comment Who founded Rome?
There's some DNA evidence that suggests the Etruscans and other Latins may have migrated to Italy from Asia Minor, which may offer a (very broad) historical background to Rome's foundation myth. That said, it's still a myth, and that's very clearly pointed out in the Wikipedia article you linked. I'm not 100% sure what the question is here.

comment What did Kennedy know about Soviet missiles during the Cuban missile crisis?
Yes, I noticed the subscription, and I couldn't find any other reliable source (hence I posted a comment instead of an answer). This isn't as easy to answer as it may appear at first read.

comment What did Kennedy know about Soviet missiles during the Cuban missile crisis?
"In 1961, the Soviets had only four intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). By October 1962, they may have had a few dozen, although some intelligence estimates were as high as 75." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuban_missile_crisis#Balance_of_power

comment Historical reasons of peaceful co-existence between China and India?
The almost continuous wall of mountains that separates the two countries was probably a factor, especially in pre-industrial times...
