|If and it's a big if, the CS had managed a peaceful seperation from the US they might have had a chance for a short while. But w/ the immediete CS cabinet, stated goals and apparent intentions I suspect there would have been no tangible CS after about 1870. There were just too many in the cabinet & in their political structure who wanted a fight. IMO they would have ended up picking a fight w/ somebody and frankly they lacked the logistical capability or logistical competency to carry the fight to anyone. And a loss would have merely led to a balkanization of the area and who would have profited from that is another what if.
FWIW I don't care for "What if's" as they detract from the actual study.
