In Jamacia it is obvious that the Canadian representative, St.Pierre, is a traitor who is using American supplied muscle to try and steal Imperial secrets.
I'm just wondering what might happen when the Allies get to a place called Montecassino. Bearing in mind the Russian stubborness (Stalingrad, for instance), it can be a bit of a problem...
While I understand the thinking I do think this could be a bit of a waste of the Paras abilities, they are now tied up in Eastern Europe for the foreseeable future and haven't even taken any ground. I suspect once again politics has played a hand, lets hope there are no 'I wish I had two divisions of Paras to drop in there' moments in coming campaigns.
It would be so good if some German generals began to kick Nazi and Red asses and turn their guns against Staling and Hitler...
Even the British cannot fix the Balkans Trek.
Kibbutzim is essentially collectivization.
A mess as in 'we have Axis remnant forces, collaborationist and loyalist militias fighting all over and we cannot station anything there'.
As for post war, it's not all going to be cake and sunshine, but the 90s Civil War isn't going to happen either for the below reasons:
a) Tito kicked the bucket a while back and the Communists aren't there,
b) The King of Yugoslavia was involved in the resistance and when he was evacuated he afterwards very reluctantly made a deal with most of the leaders of the various ethnic loyalist militias.
Just how strong the Federal Government or any institution is in post-war Yugoslavia remains to be seen, but they won't break apart as per OTL.
Basically: Things are going to be less bad than OTL. The Kingdom just MIGHT break apart at some point, but if it does it's more like the Czech and Sloval republics did.
Peaceful breakup of Yugoslavia? That's simply impossible. The country is waaay too much of an ethnic mess unlike Czechoslovakia (Ethnic Borders much more obvious). As OTL, the Serbs are going to want all ethnic Serbs into their Countries, same for the Croats, etc. In other words, there's simply no way it would happen peacefully, as in OTL. Who knows when the Serbs will want to turn Yugoslavia into Greater Serbia like they tried to when Tito died. Who knows what will happen when Peter II dies. Hell, that's if he's able to keep the ethnic-hellhole of a country in one piece until 1970.
