Here's a simple what-if:

What if the French National Assembly had ratified the European Defence Community treaty on August 30 1954 instead of rejecting it, dealing a significant blow to the Gaullists?

How would this have reflected on the immediate next decade? Suez? Algeria? the Fifth Republic?

I took the liberty and changed the title (since, I assume EDC alone would have let many people guessing). Let me know if you have a suggestion for a better alternative title.

Kato, you're a smart guy and a European. How do YOU think it would have reflected on the forthcoming decade?
