Five actually. If Reforger did not get sunk in the Atlantic. The two in Germany was forward deployed.

I bet he just watched Evangelion and thought that the Human Instrumentality Project would be a cool thing to do in real life.

More seriously, I don't understand the supposed Gnostic influence which is supposed to have been had on people like Dugin. Unless he seriously believes that this world is the evil creation of a chaotic Demiurge, which would raise more questions than it would answer.


My take is that he was simply born warped from the beginning, and, being a man of vast reserves of impulsive creativity but rather poor means of enunciating them, articulated his passion for... ahem... applied eschatology... by latching on to ideologies that seemed most likely to lead to that direction.

That's generally what happens when you literally can't rebuild your society which you caused destruction to by being treasonous bastards.

It's not like they ever acted like they were any part of the Union afterward, despite that.


By 1910 the South had recovered its Pre-War total of industry and by 1900 was about the same in terms of population.


Fucking lmao, fifty-or-so-fucking-years after the war ended. 10/10

And yes, they did actually. Joe Wheeler was literally one of the main U.S. commanders in Cuba


You mean the same Wheeler who, thirty years after the war, helped fuel Lost Causer bullshittery by acting like slavery wasn't the cause of the war? Wow, he sure integrated well into the Union, huh?

What makes it all the more interesting is that it stands in stark contrast to later Russo-American relations, and its something I'd like to see returned.

Also, if Russia went to war with Britain over the Civil War, Australia faced the real threat of invasion. Now that'd be some alt-history.

Ctrl-F for M1A1 please.


Dude, this is why you don't argue with History majors. :lol:

NORTHAG was the responsibility of the Anglo-Germans, with support from the Dutch and then eventually U.S. reinforcements; NORTHAG was never the U.S. main responsibility. What you actually want to look at is CENTAG, which was the main zone of U.S. responsibility in Germany.

Assuming that Fulda was a maskirovka and the main thrust was against the Belgians... the weakest of all of NATO... the war would've been disastrous.

Because he literally picked NORTHAG when the U.S. was mainly deployed in CENTAG; he literally doesn't even know the NATO zones of operation in the Cold War.

Torra, things are more easily explained when you consider the fact that the Union won the civil war but not the war of words over the fate of US blacks; in a very real sense, ex-Confederates like Davis or Forrest did not need to reintegrate into a society they had waged war against, for the Union eventually came over to externalize their disdain for racial egalitarianism.

It's ironic that Russian strategy towards Australia was directly influenced by the Confederate successes with Alabama, in that a small force could still wreak havoc on the enemy. The Russian fleet would have taken the poorly defended goldfields and sheep-rearing areas of Australia. Even if they couldn't hold the area due to French and British naval superiority, the damage to Britain's economy and prestige would have been considerable.

It's interesting to think about, and quite out there as alt-histories go.

I think its main impact would be felt elsewhere, in the States. The Russian fleet in Australia would have distracted some portion of the Anglo-French Pacific Fleet from carrying out operations against the US west coast. Ultimately though, it'd be moreso embarrassing than damaging. I imagine the Russians would have arrived, calmly looted the place and left before their fleets could be blockaded in port.

Which is irrelevant to the entire point being made that NORTHAG was fucking useless to the Soviet tank divisions, which was the most likely place to be attacked.

That's, again, fucking irrelevant. Forrest willingly chose to become the KKK to the point of being a Grand Wizard. I'm doubtful Indiana sanctioned the KKK.

Thank goodness 70% of Soviet tank strength is T-54/55s, T-64s, and the like.

Thank goodness the U.S. can transfer forces from CENTAG to NORTHAG.

Thank goodness the Anglo-Germans also have tanks with the same armor or equal variety to the M1's.

Thank goodness the aforementioned are also using the 120mm cannon on their tanks, again just like the M1s.

Me: "And I'm certain they did all of that on their own"
You: "Actually yes"

Fucking LMAO. Sure. You totally didn't say that at all.


Care to repeat the full quotation?

Doesn't mean shit when he helped perpetuate the lie that the Union was to blame for the Civil War. :^)


I'm still waiting.

That's, again, fucking irrelevant. Forrest willingly chose to become the KKK to the point of being a Grand Wizard. I'm doubtful Indiana sanctioned the KKK.


It's completely relevant, because otherwise you're holding a double standard that doesn't make logical sense. And yes, actually Indiana did:

By 1922 the state had the largest organization nationally, and its membership continued to increase dramatically under the leadership of D.C. Stephenson. It averaged 2,000 new members per week from July 1922 to July 1923, when he was appointed as the Grand Dragon of Indiana. He led the Indiana Klan and other chapters he supervised to break away from the national organization in late 1923.

Indiana's Klan organization reached its peak of power in the following years, when it had 250,000 members, an estimated 30% of native-born white men. By 1925 over half the elected members of the Indiana General Assembly, the Governor of Indiana, and many other high-ranking officials in local and state government were members of the Klan. Politicians had also learned they needed Klan endorsement to win office.
