Alternate history - what if the Axis had got nukes first?

  1. As we all know, the Germans had a fairly advanced plan for atomic weapons during WWII. If fate had worked a little differently (part of the reason they came off second was because they expelled a bunch of Jews who then went and worked for the USA inventing the atomic bomb - karma at work lol), they could well have invented a working nuke first - and I'm sure no one needs convincing that they would use it. Now there would have been problems with the delivery system - although they could easily reach the UK and Russia, getting nukes to hit the USA would have been quite a challenge due to the distance.

    However, let's assume that they manage to find a way to do it - whether high-altitude bombers, long-distance rockets, submarine-launched rockets, or even a secret agent smuggling it in on a cargo ship to somewhere like NYC. Assume that first one, then a second US city gets vaporized by nuclear bombs in 1945, just as happened in Japan. What would have happened next?
  2. Jews are responsible for so many deaths.. fucking evil at its best
  3. Yes, I think one is hiding under your bed, or in your closet right now... Quick!! Go check!!

  4. The answer is pretty obvious.

    However, with no place to land troops in/near Europe, the US would have been precluded from attacking Germany, leaving the Nazis free to vaporize closer targets first (North Africa, parts of Asia, etc).
