    “Wilson’s short participation at the wars end cost the lives of over 100,000 American soldiers and even more mutilated and wounded. He also had the audacity to play chairman with allied leaders in deciding the fate of Germany and redefining the borders or determining the new map of Europe. This self-entitlement was for his short participation at the wars end. This was part of the Versailles treaty whose gross injustice would spurn the Second World War, and by whose injustice and hardships would make it possible. It not only demanded the handover of all military land, sea, and air machinery but also thousands of transportation means in the way of economically essential commercial trains and trucks when the civilian population in Germany were facing starvation. The allies would add to this a continued naval blockade on the vital shipping ports of a defeated, war torn and surrendered country.” —" Reflection", John Guzziferno

    Wilson helped the allies because they owed American banks 2 billion dollars

    Thom Hartman is correct in identifying the true evil, -The authors of the Versailles treaty, (not just the product which came from it)
