    Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    Normal friends joke around about beating you, being friends with Kat means you need greater mental acuity and testicular fortitude because when she says she's going to divert a bomber towards you its impossible to tell if she's joking and you dann well know that she will do it. I find myself...

    Patton in Korea: A TL

    Despite the political considerations I think this is going to taint Bradley's legacy far more then it is Trumans. Getting promoted over Patrons head in Europe and then stabbing him in the back while he's fighting Korea? That's going to leave a mark... At least in popular culture I dont think...

    Joint RN-MN carrier fighter in the 60s?

    Couldn't the requirement be written for a work exchange? Say the Atlantic is licensed to the British instead of them developing the Nimrod, with the British redoing the avionics, with the carrier fighter being a British show? Admitedly they would need to build to the 35k figure but... between...

    and thus the flash motorcycle ride was born... someone is going to have to write a song about this, its too amusing not to be immortalized.

    AHC Alternate Saber

    What would it take for another Jet to successfully compete with the Saber MIG-15 duo. Instead of having those two dominate in terms of sales/popular consciousness give them some competition. Would an earlier Gnat, instead of the Meteor give the British enough pull or was the dominance of the...

    Patton in Korea: A TL

    Honestly the T-34's aren't that much of a problem. The North Koreans were operating on a logistical shoe string. Keeping up the fight for longer then OTL and a lot of them are going to run out of gas the way they did when the UN troops counter attacked. With Patton being the aggressive general...

    Worst provisions of versailles treaty

    The treaty that ended the Franco Prussian war shows clearly enough that the myth that the treaty of Versailles was responsible for WWII needs to die in a fire. It was a perfectly acceptable treaty for the times, he'll it was much more lieniant then what the Germans thought was appropriate, just...

    Nixon's foreign policy if he's elected in 1960, especially to Latin America?

    For derailing Condor Chile is a lot more important then Brazil... That said a Nixon presidency earlier might see more election meddling during that critical election... Perhaps enough to counter the Soviets attempts. The dynamics of south America are going to be different though. Cuba isn't...

    Nixon's foreign policy if he's elected in 1960, especially to Latin America?

    Nixon had an odd view of south America... Just about the only country he had any time for was Brazil for sentimental reasons... That said Cuba is going to be less of an issue. Allot of what spawned the Cuban missile crisis was Kennedy's inability to read the Soviets and his weak appearance...

    Between King and the leaders of the Bonus march being found this is going to be interesting times for the US... Honestly i do wonder if the country is going to manage to keep it together in this TL, the events which knit the country into a whole haven't really happened here and the regional...

    WI: The Khmer Rouge survives?

    The problem with this assertion is that Democratic Kampuchea and the Khmer Rouge were not helped by the Vietnamese in the way an allied power helps, but as a side effect of their own war. The Viet and Khmer high commands hated each other, so much so that just about the only thing tying them...

    The CIA and MI 6 are going to have to use a new definition of if the empire is at war; if a royal isn't with the army it isn't a war. No I don't care how much damage they are going the dann traits don't go to war without a royal or two in the army. If a royal is with the army? Red alert, red...

    Not sure if the Poland crisis really maps to anything IOTL, but the reactions should be interesting. I think its going to depend on if the problem seems solved by the end of it. If it is, then the USA at the very least is going to come off seeming second best due to their perennial race issues...

    Hate to say it but the poles have just gotten to the point where their teeth are just visible enough to be kicked in. If they had kept to keeping lesser Poland they would have had a chance, a small one, but pulling the nationalist card after they kicked this entire thing off and they were...
