Alternate History

For those of you who like alternate histories, like if the south had won the Civil War (War of Northern Agression ;) ) or if Hitler had won WWII...check out this alternate history at Newsweek: An Alternate 9/11 History. Is some of it a bit far-fetched, wishful thinking? Yeah. But even so, I can't help wish the US leadership had followed this road instead. Now, the most blindly loyal supporters could counter with a much darker alternate history with Saddam and Bin Laden joining forces and in possession of WMDs...but we know in hindsight that such a thing was always unlikely whereas in hindsight this one looks at least possible.

If only...
