From a Watsonian perspective, no, but the Internet is significantly more advanced TTL, and the box actually comes from a similar effort known as the Encyclopedia Galactica. From a Doylist perspective, no, but if they had Wikipedia in 1992 TTL this is what it would look like.Wait, is that Wikipedia in 1992?
Zaire was involved in conflicts with Angola when rebels based there invaded twice with MPLA support so it could be to ward off external threats like that; idk about Tanzania though.What is up with West Germany ITTL, tha t they can pull off such a secret program that it is only "suspected"?

After President Agnew refused to intervene in the Yom Kippur War, prompting Israel to use tactical nuclear weapons, a number of American allies became concerned about whether they were really under America's nuclear umbrella.

Both nations are concerned about possible aggressive actions by the white-minority regimes in South Africa and Rhodesia - Tanzania has been trying to set up a mutual defense pact with other nations, nearer to the frontline, though with little success. Additionally, Tanzania is concerned about a resumption of hostilities with Uganda, while the Mobutist regime in Zaire is concerned about potential regime change, either from within or without, and plans to use its nuclear program as a bargaining chip to hold power.Against whom would Tanzania and Zaire need the bomb?
Long-time lurker, but I've always been interested in trying something for myself, so I decided to try my hand at a wikibox. In this timeline, McKinley recovers from his assassination attempt, and Teddy doesn't ever get to be a "real" president. His credentials and image amongst the public continues to grow, until he nearly unseats President Mark Hanna in the 1908 Republican Primary (Mark Hanna won in 1904 as McKinley's successor). After being blocked by Hanna's supporters from claiming the nomination, he strikes out on his own and forms the Progressive Party 4 years earlier. The outcome of the election might be a bit ASB, but I tried to keep it as realistic as possible, considering that Roosevelt wins the election, with a third party, and with the least amount of votes.
