Well I dunno, I've been wanting to buy an Apple iPod for a while. I just needed someone to post an ad on the forums' world history section so I could see what prices they're available at...



On a more serious note, this is actually a tough question for me. In perspective of the rest of history, I really think things are alright now. Being Chinese, I often wonder what would've happened if a more patriotic and responsible person than Yuan Shikai led the Chinese republic in its infancy.

-I would save JFK & RFK, and bring into fruition their ideals for a better America.

-Foreign policy blunders. Stop America's war entry into Vietnam, going to war with a former WW2 ally makes absolutely no sense. If they want freedom from France so be it, if they want to be communist so be it, it matters absolutely nothing to us. At the end of the day they were a former ally, their ideology matters not, we can't tell people how to think.

-Instead we should've sent troops into Africa, and formed friendly relations with willing nations, and end genocide by the unchecked tyrants. Then formed relations with the democratic "puppet states". Then modernize parts of Africa, for a good world image, while at the same time setting up a monopoly on the abundance of natural resources. Example, when it became clear that our oil dollars were funding middle eastern terrorism, we should've pulled out of middle eastern relations, and conducted relations with Israel, and oil rich African nations like Equatorial New Guinea.

A little late for that, old chap. World War I was already well underway in 22 June of 1916.

However, it might have been possible to keep the Americans out of the war, as they entered the following year. Though that would have been dependent on one of the following: assassinating Wilson, impeaching him, or hobbling him through Congress.

Failing that, a certain number of revisions to the Treaty of Versailles three years later would not come amiss, I think. Not making Germany pay reparations for the war and splitting the costs of rebuilding Europe evenly among the countries involved would likely have averted the economic disaster that awaited Germany (and, indeed, the rest of the world). Not having a Saarbeckengebiet (under which German workers would be repressed and German women would be humiliated and sexually-assaulted by vengeful French soldiers) might also have helped.

Anyway, just a random assortment of ideas on how WWI might have been more satisfactorily concluded...

True. I'd also have preferred WWI not happen at all, but the 'what-if' scenarios even after the War started are still fun to imagine.

No World War 1 would mean no World War 2 and, likely, no Bolshevik Revolution because Russia would not be in such a weakened state.

Print out a hundred pages on Florida's closeness and the rehnquist five's treachery. Add in a few on 9/11.
Go back sixteen years and give the printout to Gore's campaign.

How would "No World War I" work tho? I feel like like world war 1 isn't really an event and shouldn't be able to change it. Something like if the Archduke was never killed, but even then countries were building up for a war and there's a chance that some other events might have unfolded that results in a massive war in Europe years down the line.

A change in the provisions of the Treaty of Versailles would be interesting, or a much quicker, less devastating war. Say the Russians broke through in Prussia and marched to Berlin, thus less casualties and a better peace treaty, as not as much was lost. How would the world look different? There's a chance that World War I and II, despite their toll on this world, had provided positive benefits that might have never occurred, mainly a collective between developed nations to upkeep human rights and whatnot.
