China and Russia were to big and well organized to take over completely.
All of these other countries were taken by surprise.
The Vikings were murderous monsters.
So were the English and Spanish and French and all the rest of the branches of the Kingdom..
Sharing the bounty and divvying up the proceeds.
Murdering millions of women and children and babies..
Something unheard of to the rest of the worlds nations and peoples and tribes..
There was no such thing..
