Patton, McArthur, Nuclear Weapons, and the Soviet Union by Phyllis Pickson - Sun, 19 Jul 2015 23:45:52 EST ID:OE1PGRtd No.55931 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Forgive me /his/torians, I'm a little drunk.

Forgive me again, because I'm going to open Pandora's Box of AltHis.

The war in Europe is drawing to a close, the American atom bomb is nearing completion, or it's already finished and we're waiting until August to drop them on Japan. Everybody is poised to make a deal with the devil and cut Europe up into Allied/Soviet spheres of influence, except Patton, who wants to rearm the Germans and drive the Russians back to Moscow. He's ignored, the Iron Curtain is drawn, and the Cold War begins. But what if he wasn't and the Allies charge into Slavic lands?

Next scenario: September, 1950. UN troops push the North Koreans all the way up to the No-No line at the Chinese border near Dandong on the Yalu River. Mao says, "YOU FUKN DONE IT NOW!" and a million Chinese pour over the border and start knocking Yankees and Commonwealth troops back south. Hero of the Pacific Theater in WWII and Commander of US Forces in the Far East Douglas McArthur clenches his corncob pipe in his teeth and begs Truman to drop atomic bombs on Chinese cities to get the Chinks out of his war with the Shovelheads. Truman snaps that he's trying to avoid another World War (remember, the Soviets had had nuclear capabilities for over a year now), not start one. But what if he'd agreed with McArthur and Beijing had gone up in an atomic firestorm?

>On December 2nd, acting under the authority Truman had delegated, MacArthur ordered the United States Air Force to drop five Hiroshima-sized atomic bombs on Chinese columns advancing from the Korean peninsula. Although not as effective as they had been against Japanese cities at the end of World War II, the resulting blasts and firestorms did stop the offensive. Some 150,000 Chinese troops were killed in the attacks, along with an unknown number of American and South-Korean prisoners of war. NATO allies were quick to condemn MacArthur's action, which he had taken without consulting them, and only an American veto prevented the United Nations Security Council from immediately reversing that body's decision, made six months earlier, to authorize military action in defense of South Korea. The Soviet Union, under immense pressure from its Chinese ally to retaliate with its own atomic weapons, gave the United States a fortyeight-hour ultimatum to halt all military operations on the Korean peninsula or face "the most severe of consequences".

>When, on December 4th, that deadline passed, two Soviet bombers took off from Vladivostok, each equipped with a primitive but fully operational atomic bomb. Their targets were the South Korean cities of Pusan and Inchon, both of them critical ports supplying United Nations forces. Little was left after the bombs fell. Faced with twice the number of casualties inflicted in the attacks he had ordered against the Chinese together with an almost complete severing of his logistical chain, MacArthur ordered bombers based in Japan to drop atomic bombs on Vladivostok, as well as the Chinese cities of Shenyang and Harbin. The news of these strikes caused anti-American riots to break out all over Japan - itself withing range of Soviet bombers - just as Great Britain, France, and the Benelux countries were announcing their formal withdrawal from the NATO alliance. Not, however, before mushroom clouds were reported over the West German cities of Frankfurt and Hamburg - and so, to paraphrase Kurt Vonnegut, it might have gone.

From "The Cold War" by John Lewis Gaddis, very good book, highly recommended.

I'm high enough to properly ramble a decent answer to scenario two-
If Truman doesn't talk down MacArthur then the world gets introduced to tactical nuclear strike theory twenty to thirty years earlier, when it comes to practical application and not solely theoretically, and this allows also for the complete understanding of the detriment to the world nuclear explosions and also noncontainable fallout from nuclear disaster earlier than Three Mile, Chernobyl, etc.
There is also a coining of the intended phrase 'military-industrial-congressional complex' in which political lobbying comes into the public thirty or so years earlier as well, which allows for ethics and policy shifts to occur more rapidly and under the same scrutiny as the McCarthy red and black balling trials and may have even supplanted those in the public's eye. This could lead to a different level and caliber of politicians, which may have saved us from Nixon and to an extent LBJ's in fucking sanity that we got dragged through, as well as a portion of the Bush Dynasty and the Clinton family. It could have pushed the world to be a better, albeit colder and more clinical, world in which civil and social issues are given as much attention as military and defense issues as well as shedding a different ideology to attack/defend against theocratic zealotry. Then again, that level of speculation is limitless, that far into the innumerable differences that that kind of timeline effect could cause.
Examples- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bqr5DVx3dw Eisenhower's Farewell Speech, coining of the phrase 'military-industrial complex'
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_warfare#1980s Section of (I know, it's not a credible source for proper academia) Wikipedia's nuclear war entry on 1980s strategic and tactical, localized nuclear strike capabilities of Cold War nations in the 1980s.

Not relevant to OP, but you should be aware that three-mile never went critical and leaked negligible radiation. It did scare everyone shitless, but it actually wasn't an environmental disaster. Fukushima would be a better example. I lived just a couple miles from the 3-mile island plant most of my life. Otherwise neat, if speculative, post.

This always struck me as kind of odd. How did Islam spread to South East Asia. When you look at it on a map it doesn't really seem to make much sense. I have absolutely no idea what I am talking about here but surely Hinduism was in a much better position to spread from India rather than Islam?

Again, totally clueless, but it just seems to be a bit of an anomaly to me.

You're not talking about Muslims specifically though, except that they do not tip and suck to wait on.

Islam is a culture that is applied before nationality. In fact, it demands to be considered as if it were a nationality, if you read the pig-shit that is.

the difference between muslims and normal typical immigrants is that they go to an Islamic school and pray 5 times a day, so they are very versed in the islamic culture regardless of where they live.

You only need to go back tot he crusades to see the attrocities muslims put other religious people living in the same society as them, they rode horses from europe to israel because muslims where castrating christians and jews.

So although normal immigrants will immerse themselves in their local culture and abide by normal government most muslims dont, they operate under sharia, they usually have no contact with local government and dont participate in local culture or education, they go to islamic school and depend on other muslims for welfare.
Although they live on the same land they dont recognise your government as being their government.

Muslims are very dangerous because they are like a swarm just spreading over the world right now all thanks to Bin Laden stirring up another war creating hundreds of thousands of refugees.

of course this is being very general, i do know some people who say they are muslim but partake in the eating of non halal food and have sex with the same sex, but they are very much a minority.
In Australia whole communities have been converted from working class/poor people to Moderatly wealthy muslims, all the stores are muslim, all the butchers are halal, they have a loud speaker to announce prayer and they have huge mosques all over the place.

The only reason people don't like them is because of their desire to not fully integrate with local populations and retain their own customs. It's one of the reasons they have flourished in the USA, because we were founded (partly) by people who came here to practice their own customs unmolested. Obviously that's not always been true, but that's the predominating culture anyway.

So /his/tory I'm in a bit of a bad position here.

I love history and I always was among the top of my classes, however I do not know historical dates at all.

I can tell you about the cold war but can't say the year vietnam started and ended - same with Korea.
I can tell you that WW2 ended in May of 1945 but only because I can "reconstruct" the date based on my knowledge like:
> WW2 ended in 1945 > WW2 ended with the Soviets taking Berlin > the Soviets took Berlin in May because they wanted it in time for May-Day

So how do I tackle that issue? Is there a list of dates worth learning raging from Ancient to modern times (can be Euro-centric af I don't mind)?

I mean, if you're reading about an historical phenomenon, say the Protestant Reformation. You'll start seeing dates ranging from the early 1500s up until the 1650s. And if you know it begins with Martin Luther posting his 99 Theses and ends with the Peace of Westphalia after the Thirty Years War. Also, learn some key events like the formation of the Church of England in the mid 1500s, the French Wars of Religion in the mid-late 1500s and the Thirty Years War in the early-mid 1600s.

But yeah, study history in themes rather than just going chronologically. Date by date isn't going to help you get any better at History.

How about you tell us what particular periods or epochs or eras of history you're interested in and I'm sure someone will hook you up with the requisite chronological timelines. As of right now, your question is much too broad. You mention WW2 in your OP, while quite unoriginal of you, it is a very studied topic with many resources and timelines at your disposal all over the internet.

I might direct you to begin your study on WW2 not in 1939, not even in 1914, but rather alllllll the way back to 1871 and the Franco-Prussian War. And then move yourself forward so you can get all the nuance of the beautiful game of balance of power politics in Europe and the subsequent Age of Imperialism. All of this feeding directly into WW1 which feeds directly into WW2.

this is a non-sourced story, but where I live there's a particularly out of place hill in the middle of town. Back in the wild days (this is the Pacific Northwest to give you an idea) there used to be a lot of cougars on that hill. The town hired one man to hunt and kill them all, which he accomplished in a few months or something. He liked to drink a lot, however, so after killing all the cougars and being unable to find works elsewhere, he drank himself to death. In the process of killing the cougars he also killed himself.

It's a little too storybook for me to believe entirely, but it's a local 'history' none-the-less. There's a statue of him and a cougar, looking up at the sky together, with a bottle of booze at his feet.

The Bloody Benders were a family of serial killers who owned an inn and small general store in Labette County of southeastern Kansas from 1871 to 1873. The family consisted of John Bender, his wife Mrs. Bender (later referred to as Kate, Sr., since no one knew her given name), son John, Jr., and daughter Kate. While Bender mythology holds that John and Kate were brother and sister, contemporary newspapers reported that several of the Benders' neighbors have stated that they claimed to be married, possibly a common law marriage.

They are believed to have killed at least a dozen travelers before their crimes were discovered and the family fled, with their fate uncertain

The usual methodology behind death by firing squad, is no one shooter would know if the bullet that killed was his own. Indeed, there was often one rifle with no bullet in the chamber. There was always a chance that the shooter would avoid being the tool of state sponsored murder.

With the NKVD shit was completely different. Awakened in the middle of the night, taken into a dark dead end room and tapped once in the back of the head. A single gunman, a singular responsibility.

NKVD were some dark ass mofos.

It is not enough for Islamists to kill the innocent and seek the destruction of modern society, but they also feel the need to demolish history carved in stone. How does it make you feel watching this?

So what? Art, like man and man made shit, is temporary. 5,000 years seems like a long time to an individual in the context of our lifetimes, but it isn't a damned thing compared to rock strata. We're insignificunt little fucks compared to the planet. It is neat that it survived that long, though.

>a bunch of degenerate art
>a few church frescoes

most of the shit listed in that can be ignored by half of the political spectrum on that basis alone. The rest can be ignored by anyone who is not European.

Assyrio-Sumerian art is relevant to the histories of everyone who has an old world cultural heritage. The first men to write are now having their writings destroyed.

Nice little commentary from Star Trek TNG about why humans desire to hold onto antiquities from the past. Personally, I'm with the Noofians on this one and ISIS too

Looking on a few good books on Imperial and post-Imperial Japan.

More specifically, something that covers :

  1. Japan from 1900-1945 (covering economic, social and political issues, hopefully something that talks about the econmic factors that drove them to war),

2. What war time Japan was like economically, socially, politically, etc

3. Something about the Japanese occupation of China (including Manchuria and the more fucked up stuff that happened in Nanjing)

4. Something about post-imperial Japan, how US neocolonialsm affected Japan in the years after the war, etc.

If you could hit me up with some PDF's that would be chill af. Thanks for your time

You want the mirror that says [1] and a download manager that allows continuing failed downloads as Libgen can be very spotty at times.

A History of Central Banking by Stephen Mitford Goodson has a chapter on Japan's banking system and the reforms it went through in the first half of the 20th century, and how it clashed with the Anglo-American system.

I have just one question. If I'm in a gen ed history class, and my professor didn't specify NOT to use it, am I going to get an automatic F on my research paper for using Wikipedia?

It's much better to cite a bad source than no citation at all. so you'll probably be fine.

Wiki is considered the best and most up to date resource in some fields, taxonomy for example.

However I find it particularly bad for an objective understanding of history. I've read wiki pages over and over, and noticed the changes as years pass by. One can see the active effect of trolls on any contemporary controversy.
