In 1965 a former British colony in Southern Africa declared itself independent in the Unilateral Declaration of Independence. This nation was Rhodesia. On its own it fought a bloody Civil War and insurgency against communist guerrillas. For years Rhodesia stood alone, the brave men of the Rhodesian Light Infantry and the Selous Scouts, fighting a bloody war everyday to secure their homeland.

In 1973 following the American withdrawal of Vietnam the United States was desperate for a win on the global stage. Against all odds several senators and the Rhodesian ambassador to the United States were able to convince Congress to send an Expeditionary Force to Rhodesia on behalf of the Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith. The conditions were simple the United States would offer military aid to Rhodesia and in return Rhodesia would fully integrate its society as the Unites States had done previously.

The military plan was seen by many planners to have better potential for victory than Vietnam ever did. Firstly the United States would be operating in a friendly western country, second they would be bordered by several other friendly nations such as South Africa. Finally the USSR and China were further removed from the content than Vietnam. It was thought that Rhodesia would offer the United States a chance to save face and secure vital resources needed to defeat the Soviet Union.

On January 4th 1974 the United States deployed 4000 troops to Rhodesia and lifted all embargos previously placed on Rhodesia. The United States further pressured the United Kingdom to also lift its sanctions. Seeing public opinion beginning to change South Africa no longer helped Rhodesia in secret but now openly joined the conflict. The Rhodesian Bush War was no an international conflict.

By the end of 1974 Ft. Kennedy had been established outside of Bulawayo in Rhodesia and housed 15,000 US Army Personnel and 3000 Marines. Another 3000 South African, and 1200 Australian troops were stationed in Rhodesia as well. Usomg the knowledge and tactics gained in the Vietnam War the United States used its full might to quickly assist the Rhodesians in destroying the communist guerrilla threat by the end of 1978.

As promised following the Rhodesian victory in 1978 Rhodesia, and now South Africa facing international pressure, agreed to end apartheid by 1980 and fully integrate by the year 1990.

The year is 1985 Rhodesia and South Africa are in the process of integration. Rhodesia and South Africa have both joined Nato, and the spread of communism through Southern Africa has been halted in its tracks. But the COld War still rages on.

In Rhodesia Ft. Kennedy has become the center of AFRICOM (United States Command in Africa) housing many special operations and military units routinely used to assist in anti-insurgency Warfare in neighboring countries. Throughout the 1970s and mid 80s the CIA with help from South African and Rhodesian intelligence have managed to successfully lead several coups in neighboring Mozambique, Botswana, and Angola establishing a strong pro western bloc in Southern Africa.

Angola, aided by Tanzania, Mozambique, Cuba, and the People's Republic of China, invade Rhodesia in 1987 and topple its regime, establishing the Republic of Zimbabwe and sending the Rhodesian leadership into exile.

Public outrage in the US forces a complete pull-out from Africa, giving communist guerillas free reign.

MPLA rebels assist the African National Congress and the South African Communist Party in a jailbreak of Nelson Mandela, where they rescue their leadership and free swathes of political prisoners in South Africa.

Because the CIA never learns their lesson, they set fire to buildings full of sensitive documents before airlifting their personnel out of the country via Chinook helicopters in what are now famous photographs.

Nelson Mandela ends apartheid and is condemned by the USA because realpolitik, but nobody really cares too much about it

In 1982, an alien spaceship appears over Johannesburg, South Africa. A population of sick and malnourished insectoid aliens are discovered on the ship and immediately placed into rehabilitative care.

Because apartheid was ended in 1980 and South Africa is progressive now, the population welcomed their alien visitors with open arms and sought to make cultural and social connections. The aliens, grateful for the desperately needed help from their new human friends, established a healthy and productive neighborhood in District 9.

The year is 1985 and an alien has just been elected to parliament. He champions civil, human, and alien rights across South Africa and the world. His real name is unpronounceable to humans, of course, but he is affectionately nicknamed "Martin Luther Gandhi Mandela" by the press.

District 9 is now a shining example of avant garde architecture, sociopolitical development, human-alien technological development, and research into fixing humanity's problems. The future has never looked brighter.

except that in this scenario South Africa and Rhodesia are now apart of NATO. So Nato responds by sending troops into Angola, Cuba, Mozambique and Tanzania, while sanctioning China. World on verge of WW3.

WW3 happens but Mao is put onto his giant life support mecha where he shoots down the world's entire stock of ICBMs with his eyeball laser beams and forces every single radio on planet earth to play "The East Is Red" with shitty bass distortion.

Deep in the Bayous of Louisiana, through the power of forbidden voodoo magics, John Brown's body rises from the grave bestowed with ancient and undefeatable eldritch powers. Missiles cannot harm him, confederate zombies are pulled from the grave and all those shitty statues are animated to become agents of freedom and equality against their will in a moment of incredible irony. Rhodesia crumbles under the unstoppable invasion from beyond the grave.

If i'm gonna be serious for a minute and give objective feedback on this premise, I think a far more plausible concept would be an alternative history timeline where Muammar Gaddafi made the deal to sell anti-aircraft missiles to a street gang in Chicago

That's not far removed from the plot of Robocop, so yeah, fuck it, why not
