comment Why has SACEUR exclusively been an American officer?
Interestingly, Jean-Paul Paloméros (French) is commanding the Allied Command Transformation (the organization that succeeded SACLANT, the "Atlantic" equivalent to SACEUR).

revised What can be said about conditions of slaves owned by George Washington?

comment Why haven't Russia and Japan signed a peace treaty after WW2?
@Carlo_R. If you hover over the downvote arrow, a tooltip will appear. It says: "This question does not show any research effort; it is unclear or not useful (click again to undo)". Your question does not show any research effort, I guess that's what the downvote is for.

revised Why is there a big gash in the side of the Pyramid of Menkaure?

comment What English company founded in the 1200s filed for bankruptcy in the 2000s?
