    Well the "good" news is between all the other butterflies, my grandfather is probably not present on the island as the invasion happens this time. Poor man literally just got to the poolside seat when the Turks started landing paratroops.

    Hmm, I know it is probably far far too late to pick apart on this, but considering where Petra is located, I'd have thought that there would be some semblance of stability around Jordan. Granted different WW1, butterflies etc, but once the Ottoman's shat the bed, and considering they weren't...

    I don't doubt it would do it, I'm more inclined to think that the total doctrinal failure of its deployment will be highlighted by the Russian military attaché while he tries desperately to not just start calling them every variant of "fucking idiot" that he can imagine.

    And unless the League of Nations is gonna camp up ten Kilometres either side of the Bosphurus and turn the Aegean into a naval "no fly zone" they can not stop this war. The time to stop it was when Greece Fuel Air bombed civilian targets and the Turks broke out the mustard gas. All that the MI...

    Oh boy I do not envy the diplomats in this situation. Germans fired first, so that's going to be diplomatic headache number 1 as now Germany has fired upon the soldiers of a foreign nation without provocation (Yes, yes, you me and the man on the moon know there was some, but it wasn't official...

    Ben should definitely be instructed as, provided no butterflies involved, one of those barrels is for slugs, the other for bird shot. Won't break the gun using the wrong one in the wrong barrel, but will be a serious wear and tear

    Yeah, that's a better analogy alright. I think I just went to Iran/Iraq war as it is two distinct nations as opposed to a massive civil war that created nations

    If the Greeks in this timeline hadn't deployed some seriously fucked up weapons on urban centres I might agree with you. But the last couple of times this ongoing conflict has popped up on the narrative radar, it has left it very clearly obvious that both sides do not regard civilian life as...

    Using the IRL confrontation between Greeks and Turks in 1974 as a guideline, I'd say what the Greeks would do when they overrun the hospitals is the sort of thing that winds people up in The Hague and that's without needing to think too hard. Doubly so if they decide that the volunteers who...

    Hmm, speaking of Punk bands The Clash should be just assembling around about now.

    Honestly, I'd guess dodging Chapman at this point isn't difficult. That particular event was a near perfect storm of things coming together that are easily avoided for John, ditto Yoko, though I don't doubt he could still wind up falling in with someone whose artistic ambitions outstrip their...

    Paul and George being decent human beings, John a dick and Ringo doing his own thing. Yeah, sounds about right. Do hope if Paul has wound up with Linda somehow that she gets a much longer life with him....

    I'm not paid by P-M to cause re-reads and you can't prove otherwise!

    I could see Hans going in a "journalistic" (read as: Free Holiday for minimal reporting) capacity, especially as football is an Olympic sport. Can't remember if Manny is going for shooting or not (if he is, Hans is definitely going to support his son) Honestly, would be hilarious if the German...

    Yup, best way for stuff like that is the roads being there, but closed off and only open for people with disabilities or are infirm with prior authorization. Problem is the US park's are so big, that policing them is nearly impossible so it's easier to just put a road everywhere than the...
