Re: Are "Watchmen" & "Back to the Future II" in the same Alternate 198

In the alt-1985 from BTTF II, there is a newspaper headline that reads something like "Nixon To Seek 5th Term...Vows To End Vietnam War By 1985". I suppose he could have succeeded... So maybe it is possible that the film's alt-1985 is the Watchmen 'verse. That would make Biff Tannen personally responsible for all that destruction.
Uh... if the Vietnam War is still going on in 1984 in BTTF2, then they can't be the same. Period, end of story.
I don't get it. Watchmen took place in 1985, the same year as most of BTTF2 does.
