  1. Alternate Republican nominees in 1920

    Yep -- the 12 campaign was a disaster for the Republicans -- the 16 was a compromise between the Progressive and Conser candidate for the Rep (Hughes) -- and in 20 the party was back to a more united party and TR was a shoe in. Interesting Wilson wanted to run for a 3rd term but was denied by...

  4. And All Nations Shall Gather To It - A Crusades TL

    Thanks -- i think you would see quite a few Orthodox Christians also with the Muslim tax gone --- it would also be interesting to see if you have an influx of Nestorians from the north. Not sure with the strong pres of the Byz how much influence the Italians would have on the eastern med. If...
  5. And All Nations Shall Gather To It - A Crusades TL

    I think the securing of the borders, economic development, new farmers from Europe (settlers), and a plan for the third Crusade + Byz for the invasion of Egypt would be the plan if i was the crusader kingdom ---- some Questions comments ? 1. Population of the KOJ now with Muslims leaving (per...
  6. No War in Europe: Does Japan still launch the Pacific Campaign?

    There is 0 chance of the Japanese attacking the Western Allies : However : 1. If per the POD the war ends in 40 that means no USSR invasion by Germany so : - Japan will not attack USSR - Depends on the peace with GB and France -- if France is dramatically militarily defeated then i see the...
  7. Discussion: How Would You End The Great War

    Ok -- you need a stable German gov + a weakened Russia for Peace 1. Treaty of BL in place -- take Baltic states and add to Germany (has German land - Pop expansion - keeps them eastward focused 2. Take Bavaria + Austria + Chek republic as new country 3. No German land to Poland -- Have...
  8. And All Nations Shall Gather To It - A Crusades TL

    Great update -With much of the Middle East devastated --- Aleppo / Baghdad / Damascus / Anatolia -- im not so sure the Mongols would invade the middle east. The khan made a major decision to invade Europe and the Middle east based upon loot and riches. IN this circumstance much of the outer...
  9. No Arab Caliphate: would the ERE or the Sasanian Empire finally beat the other?

    I think you need to consider the following : 1. Zorasterism was starting to fade and various Christian faiths were growing in Persia 2. The collapse of the central Persian Empire was pretty far along -- i see 20 years of civil wars and chaos --- 3. Turkish intrusions would carve away some...

  12. WI: Nixon administration (competently) pays off burglars, Watergate never fully revealed?

    The time was good for national health care, wealth, low debt, health care cost realistic, and corp health care was very expensive and was hurting business. Many if not most had health care. Obamacare was very poorly done, costly, poorly implemented, with massive illigal aliens ( est 12 -20 mm...
  13. WI: Nixon administration (competently) pays off burglars, Watergate never fully revealed?

    Bazically Nixon would have : 1. Gone down as a great president (foreign policy / national health care / China opening) 2. Have driven the national health care plan that he was getting ready to launch 3. Have supported the South Vietnam (if the north ever moved forward with invasion in the...

  15. And All Nations Shall Gather To It - A Crusades TL

    Its interesting in that much of the mothers of the Khans were Christian -- and with the failure of the Muslim states (really in many ways cut off by the growth of Byz and Crusaders (esp if Baghdad is destroyed ) -- Not sure what will happen with Mosul (if this is destroyed then really the...

    Yep good example of this is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Mohi Longbowman or crossbow etc would be very effective. However the key issues that might negate this are 1. Long bowman etc would only be effective vs Mongol fixed battle formations. A key strength of the Mongols would be...
  17. And All Nations Shall Gather To It - A Crusades TL

    My hope is that the invasion of Baghdad is a massive destructive raid. Massive profits for the Crusaders and a laying of waste to this area so that future armies cannot use as a base vs the Byz and Crusaders. With the profits from this to invade Egypt in the future In this you have 1. Few...
