I think this TL is a little bit unplausible.....well....no country would declare war against a superpower only because it is insulting their culture.....imagine....half of the welt hates USA's culture and USA's isn't in war with half of the world =D --Ed9306 23:21, June 27, 2010 (UTC)
Not to mention that all of Europe was aching for a fight. France wanted revenge for its defeat in the Franco-Prussian War. Russia and Austria-Hungary were butting heads over the Balkans and the declining Ottoman Empire. And Germany and Britain were competing militarily, economically, and politically. All the assassination did was give everyone an excuse to go to war. If it never happened, the war would simply have been postponed a few years.
