comment Why didn't China try to explore or colonize the Americas?
This is it IMHO. The main motivation for European exploration was always better trade with China and the far east. China had little desire or need to trade with anybody else, and trading with themselves required no ships. :-)

comment Wiliam Wallace vs. Robert Bruce: Why Did One Win and One Lose?
Given the first half of that sentence, "took the English in the rear" may not be the best way to phrase things...

comment State changing its name within the United States
Interesting argument. I'm not sure I agree, but I could see where someone might go to the courts with such an argument. What would they decide? Tough to know. I don't see how it could possibly come up unless the Federal Government decided to change a state's name against its wishes, which seems highly unlikely to me.

comment When was Jerusalem destroyed by the Babylonians?
You can edit your answer and do both. I assure you, if you do not correctly summarize due to missing some important detail or nuance, someone here will point it out to you. :-)

comment When was Jerusalem destroyed by the Babylonians?
I have two minor issues with this answer: 1) I personally don't like to see answers that are nothing more than text quoted directly from today's wikipedia page on the subject, and 2) Its actually tough enough to follow that I could use a summarization.

comment Has the USA ever taken unilateral military action?
@DVK I don't really care to reargue the politics of that invasion here. At the time the entire rest of the world (as well as a large portion of the USA) viewed it as a unilateral US military action. That's good enough for me.
