Why did the people in neighboring regions learn to fear Genghis Khan’s relatively small armies?

[ad_1]

Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:16 AM

Genghis Khan was ruthless and gruesome. His strategy was to scare people into submission. When they were scared, they would surrender easily and it would save Khan’s army much money, time and resources. however, in order to do so, Genghis would ruthlessly slaughter men, women, and children to prove his point.

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

The polar portion of a cholesterol molecule, which forms hydrogen bonds with the polar heads of neighboring phospholipids and glycolipids, consists of a

[ad_1]

The balanced chemical reaction is as shown below,

                 N₂ + 3H₂  –> 2NH₃

The equation shows that every 3 moles of hydrogen, H2, there would be 2 moles of ammonia, NH3, that is going to be formed. Using this concept, we solve for the unknown in this item. 

Since we are restricted only of the number of hydrogen, it becomes our limiting reactant. 

          (6 moles H2) x (2 moles NH3/3 moles H2) = 4 moles NH3

Therefore, given enough amount of N2, the amount of NH3 that can be formed out of the 6 moles of H2 is equal to 4 moles.

In Common Sense, Paine suggested that American independence from Great Britain was inevitable.

Further Explanation:

Common Sense was a famous pamphlet written by Thomas Paine in 1776. Paine was an English man who was visiting the American colonies and felt that the relationship between Great Britain and the colonists was highly ineffective. In this pamphlet, Paine argued that American would inevitably become free from British rule. The following is a list of some of the arguments made by Paine:

1) The thousands of miles between Great Britain and the American colonies make it extremely difficult for the colonial governments to work properly.

2) The American colonists are continually dragged into British wars with other countries (example= French and Indian War).

3) The American colonists have plenty of resources and trade opportunities with other countries (besides) Britain which would ensure their continued economic success.

These types of arguments convinced many American colonists that becoming completely free from British rule is the best decision possible. The ideas from this book even influenced the writing of the Declaration of Independence.
