Formally, nothing has changed.What are Japanese British relationships as of last chapter since with no need to conquer Indochina and possibly no China war (depending on political situation of japan and Britain in future) that could be a major issue for British India and Australia/New Zealand if Japan becomes a enemy(there more British troops in India TTL but if the troops try to defend India from a japanese attack there a major risk the locals will revolt again and the British garrison will be force to split between trying to crush revolt and defeating the Japanese) not to mention that even if japan does not invade india directly they can easily conquer a large part of Britain Pacific colonies very easily since the majority of Britain army is needed to keep control of India or in Europe and african colonies keeping an eye on Germans and possibly the French
The point stands.
I see what you mean. Nonetheless, the arc of land purchases worldwide by that point were already hinting at something other than generating revenues from existing tenants.But it’s a important difference, while the absentee landlord didn’t care about their tenants, I think it came as a surprise for everyone in the Ottoman Empire that they were dispossessed. I think the Ottoman simply imagine that the Zionist would do like other Jewish immigrant and settle in cities, and they simply planned to extract rent from the Arab tenants.
I don't think the solution would be about stopping Arabic discontent and more about simply rendering it moot in certain places by replacing themNothing quite solves Arab discontent like dispossessing squatters who have inhabited the lands of absentee landlords for years if not generations.
I see no reason why that would be altered. Sadly for all those concerned I think we'll still get a full Warlord Period.Does Yuan Shikai try to become emperor again?
Eh... together I suppose they could total a billion.Don't you mean billion pounds instead of million pounds cost of india revolt and millions in lost commerce from Siam?
Very possibly!Well, I think this increases the odds of germany and britain being at least nominally on the same side come Weltkreig 2: Electric Boogaloo
Very possibly- but not certain.Hardly! Britain will never forget this, and just like Germany, they will hunger and thirst for revenge. They learned nothing from the war in our timeline, they will learn nothing here.
My lips are sealed... but it would be a fitting way for them to go...My gut feeling is telling me that, in the long term, Britain's Empire is going to crumble, and in an attempt to reclaim any semblance of past glory, will make an enemy of pretty much everyone who could've been a valuable ally
