    WI ISIS Killed Bashar Al-Assad

    How would the world react to Maher and most importantly how would Maher be as a leader? With Syria in chaos and the backlash from the assasination of Assad, could Maher keep Syria together? Could he even win the Civil War or is Syria dead?

    WI ISIS Killed Bashar Al-Assad

    With ISIS pretty much kicked out of Syria I feel comfortable asking this WI to my fellow Alternate Historians. What if ISIS/IS/Daesh was able to kill Bashar Al-Assad? Could be as simple as a sleeper cell suicide bomber. I would think a good place would be to blow up at what ever Mosque Assad...

    Independent South Yemen name

    Maybe, after all naming a country after a capital is fairly uncommon. I could see them naming their new country off of the district the capital is in though.

    Independent South Yemen name

    If the Southern Transitional Council succeeds in making Southern Yemen independent. What do you think they'll call their new country? Republic of Aden? Republic of South Yemen? Restore the old Democratic Republic of Yemen? As of now I can't find an offical name for their new country if they...

    Italian Empire's Offical Name Under Mussolini

    Under "First Citizen of the Empire" Italo Balbo, do you think the Italian Imperial Republic would be renamed again? To show that he wasn't just another Mussolini?

    Italian Empire's Offical Name Under Mussolini

    It's been discussed here plenty of times if Mussolini won and how he could have won. So I'm not here to ask about that. If Mussolini did win though, ideally rejects Hitler as he did seen him as a clown and a barbarian no different then the Germanic peoples of Roman times. Let's say he's able...

    Hello Noravea, I was reading through your Alternate History timeline Giovinezza, amazing. Sadly it seems incomplete. In your opinion, in your timeline how long would Mussolini have lived until? And who would his successor be?

    Vladimir Lenin a German Puppet

    Germany sent Vladimir Lenin from exile in Switzerland to Russia to take command of the Russian Revolution. Their goal was to get Russia out of the war. But I was thinking, say Germany wins WW1, and Lenin still succeeds in toppling Tsar Nicholas II. With a victorious Germany, would the Soviet...

    Etruscan Italy

    I didn't say it was monotheist merely that because of the fact of it being a revealed religion it could have formed into a monotheist religion given enough time and stability. Roman religion never became Monotheist because they were in constant conquest and always adding new gods or at least...

    Etruscan Italy

    Well yes and no. I just mean the Etruscan Religion was, like Christianity and Judaism, a revealed religion. An account of the revelation is given by Cicero(On Divination 2.50) . One day, says the legend, in a field near the river Marta in Etruria, a strange event occurred. A divine being rose up...

    Revealed* Sorry autocorrect is weird.

    Etruscan Italy

    Haha. It would be fascinating. Plus when it comes to culture and superstition the Etruscans followed a revived faith not that different from Judaism. We could easily see a monotheistic religion in Italy had the Etruscans won. Like Judaism it would be ethnic but like Judaism again there would be...

    Alternate dominant revolutionary ideology?

    I know, the founder of Proto-Fascism/National Syndicalism as credited by Benito Mussolini was Georges Sorel. Sorel was a Nationalistic Socialist.

    Alternate dominant revolutionary ideology?

    This is past 1900 sorry but, Fascism is a revolutionary third positionist ideology. If not for Hitler, Fascism could have easily caught on. Get Mussolini to refuse to ally with Hitler and Nazism will be discredited as something else. While Mussolini Fascism (Traditional Fascism) will be seen...

    Etruscan Italy

    I wasn't mentioning anyone specifically when talking about an Etruscan Empire. Simply that when people think about Etrusca replacing Rome they think that Etrusca will create an empire eventually to replace Roman influence in our timeline. Well said all the way with all those alt timelines...

    Etruscan Italy

    I was thinking the same thing. Well with the Etruscans focusing on defending against the Gallic tribes of the Alps. I think I eventually the Etruscans would conquer the Alp tribes to use the Alps as a natural barrier. If the Etruscans could stabilize, have a surplus of food and materials, you...

    Etruscan Italy

    I know, neither were most of the peoples on the Italian Peninsula. But they all shared a vage sense of unity being on the same strip of land.

    Etruscan Italy

    Yeah, but clearly as we saw with the Roman Republic, there was some sense of "Italianness". Maybe Etrusca could simply use that to unify the Italic peoples. Etrusca already seemed to be doing pretty well with that until Rome became rebellious. Give Etrusca a defended Rome, Romes' rentry into the...

    Etruscan Italy

    Quite simply when people think of Etrusca replacing Rome they think of an Etruscan Empire, which frankly was impossible. With that said, what if Etrusca simply won the Roman-Etruscan Wars putting Rome and her city states under Etrusca. Effectively except for a few Greek city states, who would...
