In September of 1971, let's say Mao never changes his train route and he is killed. What then? How will Lin Biao's coup go about? How will this change relations with the US and the Soviet Union(where Biao attempted to defect to)? Would Jiang Qing attempt to fight him? From my understanding, they strongly disliked each other in spite of both being radicals. What will become of China? Of Zhou and Deng and the rest? The US and USSR would probably be really scared... Anybody who is Chinese or an expert on China especially welcome.
