Friday Flashback: The Final Countdown

What would happen if the Japanese had to take on the USSĀ Nimitz after a freak time… something or other?

  1. Dude,

    It is based on a true story.

    Back in the ’80’s they busted a bunch of people using drugs on the air craft carriers after some mishaps.

    Okay, maybe perceived true story.

    Of course, the implications are far more massive with that whole time loop issue. Just dropping of one or 2 technical manuals with the 1941 Navy would have ensured US military domination for the next 50 years. At the very least, the U.S. would have reverse engineered the wreckage of the destroyed modern copter and learned some cool stuff.

    Of course, had they just bothered to radio Honolulu, they could have woken up the whole base and the Japanese attack would have been met with planes in the air and ships under weigh with gun crews ready. If we hadn’t been spanked so badly, maybe we would have declared war on Japan, and stayed “neutral” with Germany. Maybe, maybe, maybe.
