comment Why is China a member of the UN Security Council?
I am actually seeing some references to Chinese naval forces participating. Do you have references for any of this?

30 years from now, perhaps impossible.

comment Why was a convicted Nazi war criminal buried with military honours?
Don't know this particular case, but I am kind of surprised to see a regular army Field Marshall was convicted of war crimes. I'm sure it happened, but typically the army was very prickly about their honor, and Hitler would have to order SS units to take over an operation if he wanted something sketchy done.

comment What are the modern names of the nations mentioned in Ystoria Mongalorum?
...if it turns out to be something like "What would we call these in English today?", which ones do you know already? Getting all 46 is a lot of work, so I figure the least you can do is knock out the easy ones for us.

comment Why were the populous coastal areas of China not linguistically united?
This is IMHO mostly the answer. It isn't that there was a wide area that was all different languages that was conquered and failed to jell. More like there was a wide area settled by Sinitic-speakers, whose dialects slowly drifted apart. Much like the proto-Indo Europeans.

comment Can anyone identify this warship?
It would be really nifty if you could include the resulting search page too, linked to your "Search Google" text. Easy to do here with the editor.
