  • Why do people blame the US for slavery when it was Britain who started the African slave trade in the first place?

    If Britain never instigated it, slavery would have never existed. America was a product of Britain and Britain-born people were the ones who started America so slavery just happened to be one of the things that were happening at the time. Thomas Jefferson even wanted to write in the Declaration of Independence... show more
    If Britain never instigated it, slavery would have never existed. America was a product of Britain and Britain-born people were the ones who started America so slavery just happened to be one of the things that were happening at the time. Thomas Jefferson even wanted to write in the Declaration of Independence that it WAS, in fact, Britain’s fault slavery existed but the other Founding Fathers wanted no mention of slavery in the Declaration of Independence. So even though the Founding Fathers had slaves (which was instigated by Britain) they at least had SOME disgust for it for not wanting it to be in the document that founded the nation of the US. If Britain never started slavery, it would never had been a problem in the US. Why do people blame the US for slavery when it was all Britain’s fault to begin with?

  • Why does Scotland want independence?

    What are their reasons for it? I know people may suggest Braveheart but that film was widely inaccurate. Is it because they hate English people? If that's true then I find that to be pretty upsetting considering that I'm English and the Scots that I met have always been lovely. What do they hope to have for... show more

  • Why didn't the Portuguese try to colonize North America?

    Except for a half hearted attempt at settling Labrador/ New Foundland, they focused mostly on Brasil. Why didn't they try to settle what would become the continental US?

  • If the Nazis had dinosaurs, could they have won WWII?

    Best answer: As weapons, nowhere close. Pteranodons (recon?) were weak & slow and Tyrannosaurs were tall, highly-visible targets. A few mortar shells would down a huge theropod long before it could reach anyone. The latter also had the drawback of requiring vast amounts of meat.

    Best answer: As weapons, nowhere close. Pteranodons (recon?) were weak & slow and Tyrannosaurs were tall, highly-visible targets. A few mortar shells would down a huge theropod long before it could reach anyone.

    The latter also had the drawback of requiring vast amounts of meat. You could feed them human casualties, but using Allied dead would provide a propaganda weapon and using Axis dead would cause morale problems, so that would leave Holocaust casualties. Shipping the bodies from Poland to the front would be unsanitary, and murdering victims (or providing them to be devoured live) at the front would be bad for morale, logistics, and secrecy.

    The main problems are that dinos 1) don't use ranged weapons and 2) are stupid. Raptors are fast and *might* work for fights where they can get close enough (like nighttime or against forest partisans), but wars are won with logistics. My own choice would be cloned mammoths to pull supply wagons through the Russian cold & mud, provided I could feed them.

    Best answer: There was no USA till well after 1776.

    Systematic European colonization began in 1492, when a Spanish expedition headed by the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus sailed west to find a new trade route to the Far East but inadvertently landed in what came to be known to Europeans as the "New World". Running aground on the northern part of Hispaniola on 5 December 1492, which the Taino people had inhabited since the 7th century, the site became the first European settlement in the Americas. European conquest, large-scale exploration and colonization soon followed. Columbus's first two voyages (1492–93) reached the Bahamas and various Caribbean islands, including Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and Cuba. In 1498, John Cabot, on behalf of England, landed on the North American coast, and a year later, Columbus's third voyage reached the South American coast. As the sponsor of Christopher Columbus's voyages, Spain was the first European power to settle and colonize the largest areas, from North America and the Caribbean to the southern tip of South America.
