  1. WI Leningrad Nuclear Plant instead of Chernobyl

    I agree that part isn’t unique to the soviets, it’s all too common in capitalist societies. What was a direct result of the Soviet system (although not unique to it either) was the fatal design flaw being hidden purposefully to the point that the emergency stop button is basically turned into a...
  2. WI Leningrad Nuclear Plant instead of Chernobyl

    Pretty much. So let's say by laws of probability the same circumstances come to fruition in Leningrad instead of Chernobyl. It's not out of the question really. If it can happen in one RBMK reactor it could happen in another, as the issues that caused it were systemically widespread in the...

  13. UK invoked Article Five during Falklands Invasion

    What it says on the tin, what if the UK formally declared war on Argentina and invoked Article 5 during the Falklands invasion.
