Not really, it was all part of the same general thesis within his Tragedy of Great Powers book and all part of the same grand theory construct.that's besides your earlier point isn't it
maybe let's just reel it in a bit
Kinda like how Kaplan's grand theory pictured a world of anarchy and fractured city states, but he at least did note the violent breakup of the Balkans. Not sure how many points you get when 95% of the same general theory is unsubstantiated.
Counter factuals also arent really accurate predictions as there is no way to determine if he would have been correct in his assessment.
