    Another good shout. Maybe the OTL Centennial District could be used to house TTL's capitol buildings?

    Honestly, there is a line that goes all the way down Ben Franklin Blvd all the way from the Art Mueseum, through City Hall and Logan Circle, all the way down to Independence Hall. That is pretty much the perfect place for a National Mall.

    Oh cool. I've only been to Philadelphia once so I'm not really sure of the geography but that does sound ideal.

    I visited the area before. Since it's a park area OTL, you can simply put the three branches of the federal government (Capitol, Executive Mansion, Supreme Court) there and leave the rest as park as OTL. It also has advantage that many monuments and museums can be put in the area.

    Good update. Will this war end up like OTL Korea War, I wonder.

    I live just outside of it.

    Well, when I'm not in college, anyway.

    If you want to know more, BKW posted a bit on it in this thread

    You're correct to say that the OTL Korean War was an inspiration for this (along with the First Indochina War) but this one is going to have a distinctly 21st century ending.

    Does anybody has WW3 vibes in connection with the latest post?

    “We’ll always have Paris.”

    “Not anymore.”

    Presumably not Edward VII who was rather fond of Paris?

    I'm assuming the Edward being referred to is the Third.

    Can't wait to see another revolution to topple Le Pen in France.
    Vive la révolution! ^^

    Le Pen is a lot of things but not an idiot, he will not leave the power without fighting ....
    Is Marine still the political heiress of the National Front in this chronology? the situation would be very hironic if she contributed to his father's fall ...

    She’s the Foreign Minister.

    Idiot, no. But stubborn and too ideological to be pragmatic enough (hence his fighting his daughter's undemonization strategy). So, indeed, I think he won't go without a fight.
    But I will avoid getting deeper into an argument that is so close in time to now and still sensitive that it could unfortunately border political chat

    Given her initial carreer into law practice, I would have rather seen her as Justice Minister.
