    In Cairo Conference during WWII the Americans, not wanting the French to return to Indochina, had offered Chiang entire control of French Indochina, but he deliberately withheld his soldiers from occupying Vietnam since he was going to use them to fight the communists inside China. The was...
  2. Alternate History Timeline: China the Superpower (The Drug Wars of Southeast Asia)

    Hi! I am currently writing an alternate history timeline in which the KMT defeated the Communists and re-united China (including Taiwan and the Diaoyu Islands but not Mongolia and Tuva). In this timeline, Tibet is a Chinese protectorate, as China chose to vassalize Tibet instead of annexing it...
  3. Alternate History Timeline: China the Superpower (Chinese Light Machine Guns)

    Hi! I am currently writing an alternate history timeline in which the KMT defeated the Communists and re-united China (excluding Mongolia and Tuva). Note that in this timeline, Tibet is a Chinese protectorate because China chose to vassalize Tibet instead of annexing it. In this timeline, the...

    Apocalypse Now was originally going to be directed George Lucas, Director of THX 1138. He would go on to use ideas from Apocalypse Now for Star Wars. He planned to film in South Vietnam in an active war zone. This is obviously a terrible idea and he could get killed. in this TL the Vietcong...

    Riders On The Storm - A Romney Timeline
    Threadmarks: Intro and Preface

    Riders On The Storm - A Romney Timeline For the sake of prefacing, I will state the following. Firstly, this is not a timeline where I will interject my own beliefs. I will not be attempting to whitewash Romney as some wholesome liberal who will usher in a better world, nor will I use it to...
  8. The Greatest Campaign: A George Wallace TL

    Hey! I've been thinking about this for a while, and formed an account to write this. I apologize if its a bit ASB-y, but basically the POD is a combination of Lurleen Wallace not getting cancer in 1961 and the US's population being a bit more conservative on civil rights in the late 1960s. This...
  9. WI Reversed cold war result?

    The Cold War was a complex era with a lot going on, so I am going to work on really simplified and perhaps not 100% parallelisms here. A very simplified examination of the cold war leads me to observe 3 big phenoma: 1. In small global conflicts accross mainly the third world, the US was losing...
  10. AHC: With a PoD no earlier than November 9, 1966, Have LBJ Win 1968

    Since the passage of the 22nd Amendment, all presidents eligible for reelection have sought it and been renominated by their party. Some won, some lost. The sole exception is Lyndon B. Johnson in 1968, who very well could have won renomination (though certainly not without a considerable uphill...
  11. What if the Vietnam war lasted longer?

    I want to see what people would think would happen if the Vietnam lasted longer than it did. What would happen to the USA? Would North Vietnam fall? What other unforeseen events would happen?

    Vietnamese Diaspora if South Vietnam survived?

    Recently I’ve became more interested in learning about the Vietnam war, and what a South Vietnamese victory or stalemate would mean for the Vietnamese Diaspora in the US. Without the North taking over the whole country it’s obvious that there won’t be as many people moving to the US to escape...
  13. Potential "Libertarian" Republican canidate in 1976 after two terms of Henry "Scoop" Jackson?

    My scenario is following: Nixon wins 1960 election and initiates a full-scale invasion of Cuba in 1961 after a Tonkin-like provocation instead of IRL Bay of Pigs. Soviets still errect the Berlin Wall, but utilize it as a convinient response to the American invasion. The lack of Cuban Missile...
  14. Hubert Humphrey wins in 1968 : how does the Vietnam War end ?

    If Hubert Humphrey had won the 1968 election, how would the Vietnam War have ended? Would it have ended earlier than OTL, or rather at the same time? How would the peace negotiations have gone?
  15. LBJ stays in the Senate?

    Suppose that Lyndon Johnson, assuming he fails to win the Democratic presidential nomination in 1960 just like IOTL, remembers John Nance Garner's words about the vice presidency not being worth "a bucket of warm piss", and so he decides to stay in the Senate rather than be the running mate to...

    ATL: Potsdam, Yalta, and others go differently and the Cold War goes down a weird path

    This is an alternate timeline in which a bunch of conferences, treaties, wars, and other stuff that defined the Cold War are done differently (however unrealistic they may be), causing a snowball effect that would make the Cold War go very differently (and also very wacky). This is my first big...

    What if the Vietnam War never happened?

    To be specific, this should be called "What if the Second Indochina War never happened" but most people know it as the Vietnam War. Basically what the title says, but to make this interesting, I have two scenarios in mind: 1. The Referendum is successful overwhelmingly (and legitimately, as...

    WI/PC: Allende sends troops to Vietnam

    Looking at Salvador Allende, let’s say that he defeated Frei in 1964 instead of defeating Alessandri in 1970. As Vietnam war breaks out, he has to make a decision: send troops to Vietnam or not. Would it be plausible for Allende to send tr Either Vietnam? What would be a realistic fallout if...
  20. Brainstorming a TL: No Nixon Pardon
    Threadmarks: 1. POD

    So I'm still nailing down a lot of things, but I have enough that I wanted some feedback. Staring with a plausibility check on the POD itself. POD: The 18.5 minutes of Nixon's Watergate tapes doesn't get erased, and it's damning. In this ATL, it's Nixon and Haldeman discussing the fact that...
