The Secretary of Defense's analysis of America's geopolitical decline following the Allied victory over Germany. Although the Soviets had lost, the Nazis had been unable to carry out much of the Slavic ethnic cleansing, and the hamfisted policies of the occupational Allied forces, caused by the lack of a Soviet bogeyman, strengthened the world's bad opinion of them, especially in the ex-colonies.In a world where the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand only led to the Third Balkan War (and Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, and Albania partitioning Serbia), the Great War is instead started with an Austrian invasion of Germany in 1940. As of 1941, the Central Powers (mainly France, Austria-Hungary, Greece, Bulgaria, and Spain) is on the upper hand, with the Imperial League (mainly the UK, Germany, Russia, Italy, Portugal, and Romania) facing partisans from ethnic minorities.
The excerpt above is taken from Kaiser Wilhelm III's public address on 8 May, 1941, calling for the Imperial League's unity against advancing French and Austrian troops.
When eventually the war ended in 1947, it was a pyrrhic victory on the Imperial Powers, with the true victor's being minority partisans in Russia, Germany, Austria-Hungary, France, and Spain.
"After two devastating world wars, and a complete American strawman on Germany, all we accomplished are the following:
1. We reignited German nationalism, despite hacking up the nation in 1960.
2. In the eyes of the rest of the world, with the exception of Eastern Europe, Anti-racist has devolved into the Anglosphere's dogwhistle for Anti-Germany.
What happened in Frankfurt, Vienna, Berlin, Stettin, Hamburg, and Düsseldorf only solidified this view. If we don't change, the world will start portraying Germans as the victims, and World War Three will be our swan song. Mark my words, President [Mike] Huckabee." - Chuck Hagel, Secretary of Defense
