    WI: China invades Taiwan on 2022/02/24?

    Idk if this qualifies as alternate history, but here we go. Asking out of curiosity, what would have happened had China invaded Taiwan on the 24th of February 2022, the same day Russia invaded Ukraine?
  4. AHC: Reverse Gorbachev and Yeltsin

    Wank the Russian Federation

    So the Russian Federation became independent in 1991. I need you to plausibly wank the RF in the following categories after 1991:- 1. Diplomacy 2. Economics 3. Military 4. Territory 5. Population BTW also keep the western/russian rivalry alive while doing so.
