Cold War alternative mini-scenarios thread

Apart fron the 'Stans - despite official condemnation there were substantial numbers of devout Moslems in the USSR.
Yes, exactly. I didn´t want to go into too much detail because I do not have the time, but I did not even begin to speak of the many Muslim majority autonomies within the RSFSR unit, with Chechnya being the obvious one that comes to mind.
I thought a particularly ironic one would be the Soviet Union managing to win the Cold War somehow, only for a united GDR Germany and Red France managing to end up essentially economically hijacking the Warsaw Pact out from under it as it's grip over it's satellite states and allies slowly starts to erode.

Not sure how'd you set up something like that though.
