Sum of All Fears

Saturday, July 21st, 2007

I’ve been reading a lot of alternate history lately, which might explain some of the wierd ideas I’ve been having. I was thinking about the premise in the movie The Sum of All Fears where an Israeli pilot gets shot down, carrying an atomic bomb. Well, what if he did not get shot down, but instead was zapped back in time to the Ancient Near East? What if, loosing contact with his home base, and thinking the worst, he completes him mission, dropping an atomic bomb on Egypt. Would that cripple the country to the point where the history of the ANE would be drastically changed? Heh… What if that happened to coincide with the Exodus?
