Historical perspectives
The United States does not enter the war right away. It is not until after the Zimmerman
telegram that the US will enter the war.
The Treaty of Versaille was “an ultimate failure.” Because France and England blamed
the entire war on Germany and held Germany responsible for the war.
Most core issues are not even discussed
League of Nations, an international court, did not have the enforcement capacity
or backing of the US.
Woodrow Wilson was supposed to be the mediator between the countries however,
because of the lack of credibility/ political authority and being infected with H1N1, Wilson
was unable to attend.
In the United States, we do partake in treaties however, treaties are ratified when ⅔ of
the Senate agrees/disagrees then the President signs it making it ultimate law.
Root cause of WWII is the Treaty of Versailles it also led to the Great Depression.
It shows a fundamental split from past victorian ideals, currency, rise of jazz, women’s
liberation and gender equity, musc, and liberation of social moral.
