The year is 1921, and I want the U.S. to build a huge naval miniltary incase of another war!
Also, my name is William E. Borah
Today were going to sign the Five-Power Treaty
This treaty will limit the amount of tonnage that warships can weigh to a 5:5:3 ratio.
This was a huge success wasn't it?!
Well looks like we're gonna have to re-negotiate.
No! it seems as if you started a race to build cruiser ships!
I think we need to make a new plan! this is getting out of control!
We will now have the Four-Power Treaty, it will include the United States, France, the United Kingdom, and Japan. It seems as if japan may become too powerful though. Maybe ill need a new treaty, if the U.S. entered conflict, the U.K. would join Japan against us, ruining everything.
Alright! here's the final deal, the Nine-Power Treaty. It will mark the internationalization of the U.S. Open Door Policy in China. The countries includes this time are the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, and China. This will also help make sure that Chinese land would no longer be compromised by Japan. And the U.S. have finally gotten the security then need!
