    Able Archer '83: The Aftermath

    Question mark- which do you think would be the most populous nations in the world to have escaped relatively unscathed? Indonesia hasn't gotten a mention yet, and it was the fifth most populous nation at the time; behind only China, India, the USA and the Soviet Union, and ahead of Brazil. Do...

    Able Archer '83: The Aftermath

    But it also forces Mexico to share responsibility and liabilities for all of the USA's debts and war crimes, as the legal successor of the United States. And there are going to be exponentially more of these than ever before, since they and the Soviet Union would have just nuked pretty much the...

    Able Archer '83: The Aftermath

    And why would any Mexican government support or endorse the prospect of becoming a hybrid nation, and being merged with the USA on the insistence of the remnants of the U.S. Government, in the aftermath of such a cataclysmic event? IMHO, it'd be more plausible for Mexico, if they're relatively...

    WI: Spirulina added to the Columbian Exchange

    Historically, Spirulina was one of the primary food sources for the Aztecs and other Mesoamericans, who called it tecuitlatl since antiquity up until the 16th century; its harvest from Lake Texcoco in Mexico, where it can still be found in abundance, and its subsequent sale as cakes were...

    Able Archer '83: The Aftermath

    So then, in this sort of scenario, what would be left of the United States? Looks to me like South Dakota and Idaho, if they're lucky enough (say, if the few nuclear missiles targeted their way fail to reach their targets), are the only two states which could conceivably escape scott-free; with...

    WW2-like division of the world

    The thing with the bioweapons route, though, is the question of whether the colonies would be capable of independently developing and distributing their own cures, vaccines and countermeasures- especially if the weaponized agents employed are capable of mutating into new strains and variants on...

    WW2-like division of the world

    All of the stuff with COVID makes me wonder whether this might be possible in an alternate WW2-style conflict which ends due to the widespread use of biological weapons (i,e. Unit 731 on steroids instead of a Manhattan Project). What do you reckon?

    WI: COVID-19 ISOTed 80yrs into the past?

    Even in places like Peru (where around 0.5-0.6% of the population's been killed by COVID even with some of the strictest restrictions on earth, with the endemic Lambda variant's fatality rate believed to be roughly three times higher than other variants; and where they don't have any wars in the...

    WI: COVID-19 ISOTed 80yrs into the past?

    So, in this scenario, each and every specimen of the COVID-19 virus (of all strains and variants, including those within the bodies of anyone currently infected with it) gets expelled from OTL's present day, and ISOTed precisely 80yrs back in time, with all of these viruses popping out in...

    WI: Present-day Nigeria ISOTed back to 1965

    Certainly a possibility (hell, OTL's Chadian Civil War effectively kicked off a few months after the date of the ISOT, with a few of FROLINAT's early leaders such as Ahmed Hassan Musa sharing similar views to Boko Haram's leaders)- though downtime attitudes towards anti-insurgency military...

    WI: The Republic of Ezo survives as a French protectorate

    If they did though, wouldn't this toss in the butterfly effect of Japan most likely being aligned with the Central Powers instead of the Entente when (/if) WW1 kicks off?

    WI: The Republic of Ezo survives as a French protectorate

    Bumping (rather than reposting). Any feedback?

    WI: Present-day Nigeria ISOTed back to 1965

    In this scenario, the entirety of present-day Nigeria, along with all its infrastructure and all of the people residing there, gets ISOTed back in time to 1965 (with the date chosen both because it precedes the military coups which led to the Nigerian Civil War IOTL, and because present-day...

    WI: Japan discovers the Liaohe Oil Field in the early 1930s?

    Well, to provide some context in that regard: Bearing in mind that 1M metric tonnes/annum is roughly equivalent to 20,000 barrels/day (or 7.305M barrels/annum), and looking at production from the Liaohe oilfield after its began there in 1970 IOTL; it took the PRC's NPC about an year to start...
