    Make offal more popular in the USA

    Any Czech's trepidation can be overcome by copious amounts of beer and fried meat. I love spicy food, and I also like ginger. I eat raw garlic from time to time too. I was more just supporting the anecdotal aversion to cilantro. And the lemongrass thing is why I tend to avoid Vietnamese food.

    Yeah I don't like cilantro or lemongrass. Though the former I dislike more than the latter. (I'm of European descent btw)

    Stars and Sickles - An Alternative Cold War
    Threadmarks: Chapter 78: Il Lupo Perde il Pelo ma Non il Vizio - Italy (Until 1970)

    Stars and Sickles - An Alternative Cold War

    I'll have to check it out, sounds interesting. I'm always a little put off by TLs that equate Nazism with Communism though. Obviously historic Communist regimes are responsible for a lot of deaths, torture etc., but not on the inescapable basis of being born into a particular ethnic group. Just...

    An Indian State in South Africa

    I know you were talking about South Africa, but if you just want an Indian state in Africa, I'd look at possibilities in East Africa. Uganda in particular had a very big Indian population until Idi Amin expelled them.

    If the PRC didn't take over Tibet could it have remained independent?

    We might be splitting hairs here, but the absolute best case scenario for Tibet in the 20th century (assuming the goal is being a "big and strong" country relative to OTL) is a Japanese conquest of the Chinese heartland in an alt-WWII scenario where somehow Japan doesn't end up at war with the...

    If the PRC didn't take over Tibet could it have remained independent?

    Tibet was first incorporated into China under the Yuan (Mongol) Dynasty. It then remained outside of the orbit of the Chinese Empire during the Ming period, being reincorporated under the Qing. The primary driving force for the Qing conquest of Tibet was the competition with the Dzungar...
