Even though Red Storm Rising is a controversial novel (as seen in a similar post in the After 1900 Subforum from 2010), I am wondering how the post-War world is like. As in: on the one hand, we have Sergetov's new government forcing a status quo ante bellum, the Soviets STILL having a serious oil problem and the ensuing economic problems that accompany it. So...how would the world look like in the setting's alternate 2019? Ignoring the fact that Tom Clancy's later work was kind of...you know. A bit too much Team America: World Police and this was before that point. Anyway, just how could you all see an alternate 2019 in the Red Storm Rising universe?
