Please not Godwin's law, lets concentrate on WW1

The fact that Finland, the Baltic states, Poland, Ukraine and so on are independent countries is due to the fact that Russia lost. (Yes the Germans recreated Poland, tho farther to the east )

It's normal strategy to weaken the looser by "liberating" parts of their territory/influence sphere as a buffer zone and installing friendly regimes. What do you think how Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia where constructed? And why they quickly deconstructed later...

So we would have seen an independent Ireland (completely), Wales and Scotland. Also Brittany and some other French areas. Northern Italy probably reunited with Piemonte.

The use of Dutch in Belgium would have been promoted. Large parts of Austria/Hungary would still be intact.

German was already first foreign language in most parts of Europe, this would have been enhanced.

10% of American school kids got their primary education in German speaking schools, 10 million Brazilians have German ancestry, 5-10 millions ethnic Germans living in Russia. Plus 5-10 million East European Jews speaking a close language.

It's hard to see how this could not have been beneficial for the spread of the German language after a victory.

No genocide in Imperial Germany and Austria, plus as usual the victor writes history.

Try to inform yourself how Russia and Turkey are still censoring their dark past.

The Americans "liberated" the Philippines only to fight for their dominance in a dirty war leading to hundreds of thousands of victims.

The Brits build an empire on piracy, slave trade, opium trade and killing Bores for diamonds and gold in so called "concentration camps".

Who really talks about this?

That's unfortunately the reality of politics ...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
