What If We’d Treated The Nazis Like The Khmer Rouge?

What if we’d treated the Nazis like the Khmer Rouge? The parallels between what happened in Germany and Cambodia are stark. So, why did we treat them so differently? Here is our take on alternate history.

The end of World War 2…..

As World War 2 draws to a close the nazi regime is removed from power by the Soviet Union alone. Germany thus becomes the German Democratic Republic, encompassing the whole of Germany, rather than just East Germany. A rump German resistance led by Adolph Hitler flee to a mountainous area on the border of Austria.

The Coalition Government of Nazi Germany

An opposition government os declared, which is joined by a small group of “liberal opposition”, as well as being supported by Kaiser Wilhelm II, the next in line to the German throne.

Cold War Politics and the Holocaust

The holocaust is acknowledged, but senior figures in the Nazi regime blame it on their underlings, not following orders. Western governments fearing Soviet hegemony in the region support this “rebel” army, an army which is dominated by Nazi fighters. Not only this, but we allow the Nazis to retain the “rightful” seat at the United Nations for a further 12 years. Until 1957 Joseph Goebbels is the UN representative for Germany at the UN.

Winston Churchill makes a that whilst the holocaust was a terrible thing and that Hitler “probably shouldn’t” have a say in a future German government, more moderate Nazis would need to be involved in the rebuilding of the country. The west does not recognize the GDR during this period.

Jews and enemies of the state are still persecuted in areas still controlled by the Nazis.

Peace is finally achieved

In 1959 after numerous peace talks are held the Soviets agree to withdraw from Germany, the country is renamed the Kingdom of Germany with Kaizer Wilhelms son taking throne.

Adolph HItler and the Nazi regime decide to stay in their mountainside stronghold and continue the Civil War. Germany becomes the most land mined country on earth. In 1962 Hitler orders the killing of Goebbels and Goring. The former he succeeds in the later he fails with.

The west do not pursue any of the perpetrators of the Holocaust. Adolph Hitler is put under house arrest in 1962 and dies of old page in 1964. By 1966 the Nazi rebels have all either been captured, or have defected to the government, most of them have been given Royal Pardons.

The Nuremberg Trials

By the early 1970’s it is decided that the remaining leaders should be tried for their crimes, but the legal process takes so long that by the end of the 1970’s and early 1980’s when they begin to stand trial, many have either already died, or have gone senile.

The Nazi rebels rebrand themselves as the German People’s Party and run the country under .

This actually happened in Cambodia

So whilst this looks and seems ridiculous, if we swap each “character” for Khmer Rouge leaders, and the years for when this all occurred, then it is basically exactly the same.

So, when the question comes up of if the west supported the Khmer Rouge, then one merely has to swap Nazi Germany for the Khmer Rouge. This is not a scholarly debate, western crimes with regards to the Khmer Rouge are a proven thing, with all if it being done in the name of rolling back communism.

What if we’d treated the Nazis like the Khmer Rouge? The world would look very different today.

Gaming May Be Making Us Silly

Gaming is the general term used to describe any computer activity involving interaction with an electronically programmed computer system (or computer program) that allows users to interact with a visual output on the screen. There are literally thousands of different types of computer games available today, and each one requires different skills to play. There are also many different ways to play a particular game, including competitive gaming, role playing, and casual gaming. Many computer games allow a player to progress through a series of increasingly difficult levels and eventually to complete the game. Some games are popular among particular age groups and genres of entertainment, while others are more universal in their appeal. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular computer games.


Online multiplayer console gaming is popular among both young and old alike. With the popularity of consoles such as the Xbox, Sony PlayStation, and Nintendo Wii, as well as PC based games consoles like the Play Station 3 and Nintendo Wii, there is a large and enthusiastic online community dedicated to these consoles and games. Because of this intense competition, it is possible for someone to become quite skilled at communicating and networking within this multiplayer community. The messages that players use in their in-game chat programs are often customized to include personal information and other factors which make them much more difficult to block by an individual using personal computer security software, such as anti-spyware and antivirus programs.

Computer gaming is not only popular among adults, but children as well. Young children can be seen playing games like the popular Dora the Explorer online as well as older children playing Mario Brothers or Donkey Kong on their Nintendo DS systems. For adults, computer gaming has always been a favorite form of relaxation after a hard day’s work, and the social media has only made this more enjoyable and accessible for people of all ages. Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter are just a few of the social media websites that are full of games for gamers to play. The options for in-game communication and interacting with other gamers from around the world are endless.

While gaming may be considered a relatively harmless pastime, the effects of playing video games may be far more harmful than many realize. The effects of video games may range from addictive behavior to violence, as well as negative socialization aspects. Negative effects of gaming are currently being investigated by school researchers studying how students react to playing video games that require high levels of concentration and focus such as strategy games and first person shooters. These studies may lead to improved academic performance and a boost in test scores among children.

Parents are also becoming increasingly aware of the effects of gaming, especially those with young children. Some parents will not allow their children to play games that have time limits or other requirements that may cause them to be unable to complete the game. In other cases, they will allow their children to play the games but will monitor their activities to ensure that they are not spending excessive time in a particular game. Video games may also cause a change in the way that children interact with their peers. New research is investigating whether young people who play video games are having a similar effect as adolescents who spend a lot of time playing sports related computer games, where players frequently fight with each other for control of a game environment.

The new study is examining whether the changes noted in this research are due to personal information being posted on the Internet by gamers. Personal information includes personal contact information, location, game play details, chat room names, and more. When this information is released, it can lead to embarrassment or even shame among gamers and can lead to the silencing of critics. The use of personal information has caused an increase in anti-gaming sentiment against gamers.
