    Military Aircraft that should have never been built?

    What are plausible decisions Imperial Japan could have made after Pearl Harbor to improve their performance in the war?

    Japan could dramatically increase the number of naval aviators for its carriers if it excised some of the unnecessary bits of its curriculum (such as wrestling, pole climbing, diving, and one-handed hanging).

    Military Aircraft that should have never been built?

    After the cancellation of the F-111K came the AFVG program which was itself cancelled and replaced by the UKVG program (which also got cancelled) after that.

    A Matter of National Security

    Actually, the US could begin work on expanding its base infrastructure and fortifications in the Pacific as early as January 1st 1937 when the Washington Naval Treaty expired. Neither of the two London Navy Treaties renewed Article XIX of the WNT.

    No NATO intervention in Libya

    Most likely France goes into Libya alone. Gaddafi had made himself into a loose end that needed to be eliminated after providing millions in funding to Nicholas Sarkozy's presidential campaign. He was a dead man walking after the 2007 French Presidential Election.

    How different would a modern day KMT one party China look compared to today's China?
