"We are like dwarfs sitting on the shoulders of giants. We see more, and things that are more distant, than they did, not because our sight is superior or because we are taller than they, but because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours."

Mongolia = Mine-golia?
While watching the following video, I got shocked by new map being suggested by Parag Khanna, who is director of the Global Governance Initiative and senior research fellow in the American Strategy Program at the New America Foundation.
In this video he explains the root causes of many conflicts by using maps of the past and present. And it's quite well spent 18 minutes ;)
