The state of TIAH

in 1891, General Anthony Franklin decides to take back Kansas City, at least the Missouri side, with the reinforcements he has gotten from back east and the help of the Missouri state militia. With almost 4000 men, he moves into the city and imposes martial law in order to stamp down the pandemonium that has been the norm in Kansas City since the fall of the legitimate Kansas government. 'Sockless' Jerry Simpson is informed of this troop movement by wireless, and immediately orders his volunteers on the border with Missouri to converge on Kansas City.

in 1999, King Arthur II of Great Britain orders a counter-attack against the Central European Empire, and his chief general, Sir Lance du Lac, has just the target. A squadron of British planes slips through the CEE defenses and bombs the capitol at Bern, killing hundreds and demolishing several buildings. Emperor Pierre, himself, is forced to flee the city to escape the British attack, and is enraged at the audacity the Brits have shown. He orders the activation of his sleeper agents in Arthur's government.

In 52503 Louise Baltimore, Chief of Snatch Operations received a message from the Big Computer You are in great danger. You will also die if you do not do exactly as I say. Moments later, Baltimore was summoned to the Operations Centre at the Gate Complex. "What's up?" said Baltimore to the Gnome at the control station. “We had an indication of a twonky developing," he said, with deplorable grammar. A twonky used to mean some anachronistic object left behind during a snatch, but lately people had begun using the word to refer to the paradox situation that object tended to generate. "Shortly after the twonky alarm, you left your mission report on the DC-10 and it is now in the hands of a very dangerous individual." Written 500 centuries in the future, the mission report was now an anachronistic object left behind in 1983. The cause of a paradox, the report was now threatening an end to the world as we know it.

Lord Louis Mountbatten
Lord Louis Moun..
In 1972 former Interim Prime Minister Lord Louis Mountbatten and his deputy Major General Ord Wingate, DSO relaxed in an Officers Club in the Strand. 'Well, Ord ' said Mountbatten ' our mission is completed. I feel all of my seventy years this evening'. 'But sir, ' replies Wingate ' we have handed over to a bunch of incorrigible ..
.. rotters, absolute nutters...'. Mountbatten takes a big shot of brandy, 'Quite.' he says with his commanding office voice, 'Hand of whist, Ord?' he added picking up some playing cards and closing the conversation..

In 1983 the articles published by historian Hugh Trevor-Roper in Die Zeitung (The Times) newspaper shocked the world. The murders checked out and he was certain that YES Adolf Hitler did indeed suffer from lycanthropy of that there was no doubt. Bormann had concealed that condition, had committed a form .. Bormann
.. of euthanasia by shooting his master with a silver bullet, and then yes destruction of Hitler's ashes in the Reich Chancellery Gardens following the Fuehrer's death in Berlin in April 1945. Readers wondered, if the central charges of the Bormann Diaries were verifiable, why had Trevor-Roper declared them to be forgeries?

King Beating
King Beating
In 1992 on this day the remaining jurists received some firm guidelines on the 'right' verdict on their upcoming decision. They are of course the mostly white jury sitting on the trial of four police officers accused in the videotaped beating of black motorist Rodney King

In 1952 Dwight D. Eisenhower resigned as Supreme Commander of NATO (SACEUR) in expectation of his forthcoming election as President of the United States. When he was beaten at the polls by Douglas MacArthur, the incumbent Harry S Truman was thrown into a fury. Not only was he handing over bacteriological, atomic and hydrogen .. Eisenhower
.. weapons to a man he considered to be of a broken mind, he did not have the shock absorber of Ike as SACEUR to challenge Brass Hat's megalomaniac and warmongering.
