9/11

  1. If Gore Had Won in 2000, How Could He Have Addressed Climate Change?

    Since the 1980s, Al Gore's chief policy issue has been climate change. He published the book An Inconvenient Truth in 1989, and starred in a 2006 documentary of the same name. Most discussions about a Gore victory in 2000 tend to focus on how he might've handled 9/11 and the economy differently...
  2. DBWI: How Would George W. Bush Have Handled 9/11 and the Financial Crisis?

    I know this is relatively recent history, but just to set the stage for this DBWI thought experiment I'll recap the past 20 or so years of US history. In 2000, after a nail-biting election campaign, Vice-President John Kerry defeated George W. Bush and became the 43rd American President. Kerry...

    WI: The Original Plan For 9/11 Went Through?

    During my visit the 9/11 memorial, a tour guide told me that the original plans for 9/11 would've also targeted attractions across both coasts of America. Naturally, I was curious and after doing a bit of research on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's original plans for the terror attacks, I found out...

    AHC: US Doesn't Provide Refuge To The Shah?

    Otl, after the iranian revolution, the USA, under Carter gave Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the ousted Shah, refuge. Which went over poorly with the Islamic Republic. But what if we didn't? What if we approved the revolution, at least on paper. This would keep us away from Saudi Arabia over the 20th...

  10. DBWI: Twin Towers Not Rebuilt

    Looking back now, it's hard to believe that the idea of rebuilding the Twin Towers after 9/11 was so controversial when it was proposed, and for some time afterwards. Even now, you see the occasional article or opinion piece saying it was disrespectful, a mistake, etc. But the idea's defenders...

    Another 9/11

    Ok, so, what if Osama Bin Laden decided not to strike the US on September 11th? What if, instead, a major storm cell developed over DC and spawned an EF-5 tornado that directly collided with the White House? Since Bush is in Florida, how does the nation react to DC being destroyed by nature?
  12. DBWI: 9/13 done by Islamists instead of Neo-Nazis

    Okay, so a lot of timelines on this site seem to have a rough equivalent to the September 13th attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the White House being carried out by Islamic Terrorists from abroad instead of Neo-Nazis from within the United States. I did some research on...
  13. If Gore Wins in 2000 and McCain Wins in '04, Who Wins in '08?

    The year is 2000. Vice-President Al Gore narrowly defeats George W. Bush to become the 43rd US President. Four years later, Gore loses his re-election bid to Senator John McCain. In 2008 President McCain is running for re-election, at least if his health permits. Under these circumstances, and...
  14. DBWI: Bush Wins in 2004

    John Kerry won the 2004 election in a narrow race against President George W. Bush. The election was decided by the state of Ohio, which went for Kerry by less than 1%. What if Bush had carried Ohio and won a second term in 2004?
  15. WI: Gore Runs in 2004

    In the lead up to the 2004 election, Al Gore was widely expected to run for President once again. But he declined. What if Gore had run?

  18. 2004 GOP Primaries if Gore Had Beaten Bush

    The POD is Gore picks Florida Senator Bob Graham as his running mate instead of Joe Lieberman, and Graham's presence on the ticket allows Gore to win a clear majority in Florida and therefore the election.
