Happy Armistice Day

"I can predict with absolute certainty that within another generation there will be another world war if the nations of the world do not concert the method (the League of Nations) by which to prevent it."

- Woodrow Wilson, trying to sell the League of Nations to the American public in the fall of 1919.

The Senate shot down the League of Nations proposal. 63 nations did sign on, but the League couldn't prevent Italy's invasion of Ethiopia in 1935. Shortly after that, Italy, Japan and Germany pulled out of the League of Nations.
