"[Da Crimean War] was not tha result of a cold-ass lil calculated plan, nor even of hasty last-minute decisions made under stress. Dat shiznit was tha consequence of mo' than two muthafuckin yearz of fatal blunderin up in slow-motion by inept statesmen whoz ass had months ta reflect upon tha actions they took."-Shepard Clough

Austria had few options up in tha Crimean War, none of dem good. Y'all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! I be fly as a gangbangin' falcon, soarin all up in tha sky dawwwwg! Although Russia helped Austria put down tha Hungarian Revolution of 1848, n' tha both belonged ta tha Holy Alliance, Austria feared Russian juice up in tha Balkans. Not wishin ta anger Russia removed tha possibilitizzle of a alliizzle wit Great Powers, so Austria remained (mostly) neutral. It aint nuthin but tha nick nack patty wack, I still gots tha bigger sack. Yet, she lost da most thugged-out of any power, dat bein her alliizzle wit Russia, leadin directly ta defeats all up in tha handz of France n' Prussia, diplomatically isolatin Austria n' leadin ta tha formation of tha Central Powers. But what tha fuck if Austria honored her Russian ally?

POD:Austria intervenes on Russiaz side durin tha Crimean War, resultin up in a Russian Victory. (Or, tha put it mo' erectly, tha Danubian War )

Da Balkans afta tha Danubian War .
