Russia and Mexico have similar population sizes. A similar GDP. A similar life expectancy. A similar amount of irrigated land. Both countries suffer from organized crime or corruption. Why is one nation a major threat while the other is an American puppet state?
All Russia has over Mexico is its military and fields of frozen land. Otherwise, neither nation is becoming a great power anytime soon.1 AnswerPolitics2 days ago

1. It presumes that China or Persia or Central Asia would colonize Europe or at minimum remain a great power if Genghis Khan was never born which is impossible to prove.
2. It ignores the fact that the Mongols did invade Europe. They wrecked Eastern Europe and even Central Europe yet those areas eventually recovered.
3. It doesn't explain why India and North Africa got colonized by Europeans when the Mongol Empire never conquered them.
If anything, the discovery of North and South America have far more to do with European growth than the Mongolians ever did.2 AnswersHistory3 months ago

Many people wonder why Black Africa hasn't accomplished much in history when so called "White Africa" up North didn't do a whole lot either.
Egyptians are not Berbers. They are different Afro-Asiatic speakers. Berbers traded and interacted with Egyptians but they are different people.
Carthaginians weren't Berbers either. Carthaginians were Semitic Phonecians from the Middle East.
The only notable Berber kingdom from the past was Numidia. For most of history, all the Berbers have accomplished is getting conquered by outsiders. First the Egyptians invaded them. Then the Carthaginians did it. Then the Romans did it. Then the Arabs did it. Then the Turks did it. And finally European empires did it.
The Maghreb is like Poland, except at least Poland allied with Lithuania and had an impressive conference. The only notable thing Berbers did was start the Barbary Slave Trade where they enslaved, killed, and ravaged millions of White Europeans and Americans.
Even when it comes to modern day geopolitics, there are several Sub-Saharan African countries richer than your average North African state like Botswana, Seychelles, Equatorial Guinea, Mauritius,, etc.
When it comes to history, both the Malians and Ethiopians have accomplished far more than any North African civilization (excluding Egypt of course) has ever done.
