Today, we'll be talking with Woodrow Wilson about: Was the League Of Nations aka, LON, a success or a failure?
Can you tell me what the LON is?
The LON, or League Of Nations, was an organization I created so we can resolve conflicts peacefully instead of war throughout the world.
The US didn't join, did they?
No, because the US government didn't want us to be involved in these kind of affairs. They wanted us to be in isolation.
Lots of the European countries, like Britain, France and Asian countries like Japan too! Around 40 countries were involved.
Which countries were in the LON?
What was the LON's biggest successes?
Our biggest success was when we helped create peace between Greece and Bulgaria in 1925, and we freed over 200,000 slaves too! We also stopped many border disputes from turning into full blown wars!
So what are the LON's failures, eh?
Well, our major failures was the Manchurian Crisis in 1931, where Japan took control of the Chinese province of Manchuria and the Abyssinian Crisis in 1935. Also, everyone realized that without an army, the LON couldn't do much, and if they disliked the produres, they were allowed to simply leave the LON.
So, the League Of Nations was a failure, wouldn't you agree, Woodrow?
Yes, the LON was a failure! But, we had a good impact on the world, bringing forth what is now the UN, aka the United Nations!
