If we as Allies are more generous with the Central Powers, the losers, we as a global unit will be less likely to relapse back into war.
The 14 Points is my generous proposal for handling the situation after The Great War. Points 1 - 6 can be aimed at keeping peace within the world, Points 7-12 established new territories, and my proudest points, 13 and 14, creates the League of Nations!
Meanwhile in Versailles France, at the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. . .
As a whole, we deserve a large spoil of this war! We need to punish the Central Powers! Germany must admit war guilt and we are going to dismantle their country, but we are going to do one major thing to keep peace - create a Leage of Nations!
Agreed! Make Germany PAY!
Although these two plans had different methods of achieving their goals, they both were aimed at attempting to keep world peace, creating some new territories, and creating a League of Nations. This League attempted to restore world peace and keep all countries within the League happy. But one technicality of the terms of the League caused the United States to never sign the Treaty of Versailles.
Ok, lets vote!
We can't be drug into war every time there is a minor skirmish in another country that we didn' even knew existed!
Say NO to collective security measures! And keep the U.S independent in their decisions!
The Senate voted on signing the Treaty of Versailles 3 times, and each time it was voted down. Democrats mostly supported the signing of the treaty, but Republicans were somewhat divided. Ultimately, the treaty was never signed by the U.S. and the country never entered the League of Nations.
We need to bring a political end to this Great War!
Ok, we will ratify a joint resolution. This will finally end this war in the U.S.!
Its July of 1921! Three wholes years since the war ended in Europe!
