comment What are some major military successes achieved by the former Soviet Union against the Western World?
@JoeHobbit - The Americans consider the Berlin Airlift a victory for their side, tho: American logistics vs. Soviet ground forces. In retrospect, both sides probably thought they "made a point" - the Cold War was weird like that.

comment Why did Austronesian/Polynesian people not colonize Australia?
@Drux - During the Ice Age, lots of land routes to places existed that are no more (see "Sahul" - the continent as it was during the Pleistocene)

comment What prevented the Mongolian Empire from expanding into Europe?
@TomAu - Ummm - this comment is also ahistorical. Dan Carlin's "Hard Core History" podcast series on the Mongol conquest is a great introduction to the topic, and offers a number of points of departure for further inquiry. It may be a good tool to refine your answer.

comment What prevented the Mongolian Empire from expanding into Europe?
This answer is ahistorical. Ogegai, not Genghis, commanded Subutai to conquer west to the Atlantic, and it was Ogedai's death that caused their recall. Further, it wasn't until the death of Möngke that the Mongol Empire became disunited.
