    WI: American Airlines Flight 11 is armed with a stolen 40 kiloton Pakistani atom bomb

    According to Nukemap blast would be enough to obliterate Wall Street, the rest of the Financial District, and the NY Fed too, and it would even cause mild damage to buildings as far away as the Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden. It would be too high for any fallout, but the short...

    What if The Iron Giant and Osmosis Jones wasn't failed in box office?

    The Iron Giant, is an one of the Warner Bros. Pictures famous animated cartoons, won the best picture award. How can I tell you this, if this film hadn't failed, then released the series in the early 2000s, for single or two seasons. Here is about Osmosis Jones too, for me quite to taste...

    Bush Presidency without 9/11?

    Let's say that somehow 9/11 is foiled or averted quietly, and September 11th, 2001 is just remembered as an ordinary day. What would the rest of George W's presidency have looked like without 9/11 and the War on Terror?
  6. If Gore Had Won in 2000, How Could He Have Addressed Climate Change?

    Since the 1980s, Al Gore's chief policy issue has been climate change. He published the book An Inconvenient Truth in 1989, and starred in a 2006 documentary of the same name. Most discussions about a Gore victory in 2000 tend to focus on how he might've handled 9/11 and the economy differently...
  7. DBWI: How Would George W. Bush Have Handled 9/11 and the Financial Crisis?

    I know this is relatively recent history, but just to set the stage for this DBWI thought experiment I'll recap the past 20 or so years of US history. In 2000, after a nail-biting election campaign, Vice-President John Kerry defeated George W. Bush and became the 43rd American President. Kerry...

  9. Accountability: The Fall of Bill Clinton
    Threadmarks: Ch. 1: White House, January 25, 1998

    Accountability: The Fall of Bill Clinton January 25, 1998 It was going to be a relatively nice day, the high near 45. Sunday traffic was lighter in D.C., not that it mattered for the President’s motorcade. But despite having the ultimate right of way, it was still a few minutes behind...

    WI: The Original Plan For 9/11 Went Through?

    During my visit the 9/11 memorial, a tour guide told me that the original plans for 9/11 would've also targeted attractions across both coasts of America. Naturally, I was curious and after doing a bit of research on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's original plans for the terror attacks, I found out...

    AHC: US Doesn't Provide Refuge To The Shah?

    Otl, after the iranian revolution, the USA, under Carter gave Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the ousted Shah, refuge. Which went over poorly with the Islamic Republic. But what if we didn't? What if we approved the revolution, at least on paper. This would keep us away from Saudi Arabia over the 20th...

    Threadmarks: Gore Administration- The Beginning

    Well, this is my first timeline! A timeline where Al Gore instead of George W. Bush became President of the United States in 2000. It's a bit of a classic, but there's alot of potential here and I am happy to take suggestions, criticisms and corrections since politics is not exactly my forte...

    March 1995 - Los Angeles Eazy-E had gone from a dopeman to a worldwide hero worth $50 million in a decade. He proved Dre who was still on top in 1993, and discovered Bone Thugs-N-Harmony along with The Black Eyed Peas. Of course, the rest of the game was just as ruthless as he was. That’s why...
  16. DBWI: Twin Towers Not Rebuilt

    Looking back now, it's hard to believe that the idea of rebuilding the Twin Towers after 9/11 was so controversial when it was proposed, and for some time afterwards. Even now, you see the occasional article or opinion piece saying it was disrespectful, a mistake, etc. But the idea's defenders...

    Another 9/11

    Ok, so, what if Osama Bin Laden decided not to strike the US on September 11th? What if, instead, a major storm cell developed over DC and spawned an EF-5 tornado that directly collided with the White House? Since Bush is in Florida, how does the nation react to DC being destroyed by nature?
  18. DBWI: 9/13 done by Islamists instead of Neo-Nazis

    Okay, so a lot of timelines on this site seem to have a rough equivalent to the September 13th attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the White House being carried out by Islamic Terrorists from abroad instead of Neo-Nazis from within the United States. I did some research on...
  19. If Gore Wins in 2000 and McCain Wins in '04, Who Wins in '08?

    The year is 2000. Vice-President Al Gore narrowly defeats George W. Bush to become the 43rd US President. Four years later, Gore loses his re-election bid to Senator John McCain. In 2008 President McCain is running for re-election, at least if his health permits. Under these circumstances, and...
  20. DBWI: Bush Wins in 2004

    John Kerry won the 2004 election in a narrow race against President George W. Bush. The election was decided by the state of Ohio, which went for Kerry by less than 1%. What if Bush had carried Ohio and won a second term in 2004?
