    "If They Want It They Can Have It": Ulster's Tragedy.

    Yeah, that's kinda the rub of it. I wouldn't wanna move back and risk a repeat a few years down the line. Much less given the discrimination and such they faced before, let alone the violence.

    Spite? Insanity? I dunno, it hasn't really been explained why.

    "If They Want It They Can Have It": Ulster's Tragedy.

    I'm just glad there's no Armalites and other firearms. Northern Ireland declared Independence from the UK. As in, they're now their own country. Meaning naturally, everyone Catholic up there suddenly is in fear of their lives, and were "encouraged" to go south by the Loyalists rampaging. The...

    Crimson Banners Fly: The Rise of the American Left

    He already is. GOing outrifght court packing like that might actually piss off people on his side, and that's not something he wants. Either way, next election is gonna be a doozy.

    Crimson Banners Fly: The Rise of the American Left

    Something tells me Gompers is not gonna be very popular among the workers. Might have people start calling him Judas.

    Greater, more organized support to Asia after WW2 from the US? Asian marshall plan

    Issue also was, well, the Marshall Plan had a hella hard time passing through Congress, getting it for Asia as well might be a bit of a stretch.

    Patton in Korea/MacArthur in the White House

    Oh yeah. Nixon once calling in Hoover to put some reins on him, and Hoover left happy as a clam while Nixon was dead white. And that was Nixon of all people.

    Place In the Sun: What If Italy Joined the Central Powers?

    Problem is, sooner or later, they're gonna run into the issue most of that area is already claimed by various other powers. In OTL, it's one of the reasons why Japan was somewhat given a free hand in China at Versailles, because well, if they couldn't expand there, their alternatives were pretty...

    "If They Want It They Can Have It": Ulster's Tragedy.

    Worse, they're ALSO driving out large amounts of citizens, IE, taxpayers, who are also taking their wealth, with what's left, usually houses and such, being torched..... The poor sod who gets to be their Treasury Minister is gonna go Librarian-poo when he sees the books.

    "If They Want It They Can Have It": Ulster's Tragedy.

    Problem is less motivating the large unarmed mob to leave without too many casulties (It's a large crowd, even sticking with water cannon and less lethals, it's gonna be hard and hellish), it's then surviving the paramilitary units all coming after you. Being put under siege, in a base that...

    "If They Want It They Can Have It": Ulster's Tragedy.

    Especially since there's all kinds of ways to intervene. They can't drop a corps into NI yeah, but giving some go aheads for A-Teams into the area, or lending logistical support for the UK's peacekeeping, well now....

    "If They Want It They Can Have It": Ulster's Tragedy.

    True, but at the same time, they'll be going up anyway, so best to just pass on some.... requests to the IRA and friends from the Republic, so everyone gets to come away happy.

    "If They Want It They Can Have It": Ulster's Tragedy.

    Hell, hold fundraisers in the US ala how the IRA used to. Might be enough tog et a considerable amoutn of cash that way.

    Crimson Banners Fly: The Rise of the American Left

    Worse, the moderates have been discredited, meaning next time it gets bad enough, the strike's gonna kick off big time, and with the lessons learned, well.... It could easily translate into a revolt. Johnson's made a fatal error here; He forgot that the Unions have a voice to, and they learned...

    Patton in Korea/MacArthur in the White House

    Nah, there's still tons of unexploded shells. To the point they have a Red Zone, to say nothing about the annual Iron Harvest. Missing a mine or two is possible.

    Patton in Korea/MacArthur in the White House

    Hell, have him save some kid in a robbery. One last fight for the old warrior. Bonus points if it's a mutual kill. I just have this image of him in Dirty Harry 4's robbery, and proceeding to ream the fucks out, saying he's not gonna cower from some peashooter held by a idiot who can't even shave.

    Patton in Korea/MacArthur in the White House

    Victory disease. Helluva drug. Nobody opposed him, so he figured he could win no matter what, even against a hero like Patton.

    In this country , it is good to kill an admiral from time to time

    Plus, if the army they need for populace control is now being mauled on the front lines, well, that gives the populace a chance to vent some anger.
