What If It Happened in 1979?

Now, I like to label all sorts of things as "fun read," but there is a limit. I was about to say "hey, fun read!" but then thought better of it. So read "Timeline 9: "The Big D" - what if "the mid-east war escalated and the tensions between the superpowers grew. March 17, 1979 nuclear war broke out: Egyptian missiles with Soviet warheads struck against Israel ..." (read it) This is indeed one of the most detailed and enlightening "alternative future" scenarios that I've seen.

Hi Anton

You know this is the second "interesting reading" of yours that I've followed where France ended up as the dominant world power. =)

Yes, isn't it bizarre? :-) Maybe that is where Daniel Keys Moran got the inspiration for his books!
