Is there any level of hyperbole that this fucking schmuck WON'T descend to? Seemingly not.
It is quite possibly the stupidest idea ever put forth by an American President (Woodrow Wilson). a) It only included those countries (and their friends) which fought on the winning side of WW1 (attaway to offer up peace and reconciliation, huh?). b) It was essentially just another form of alliance (the very same concept that plunged the world into war in the first place!) in which each of the member countries was obliged to come to the aid of the others if attacked. c) It allowed (and even fostered) trade and immigration restrictions (additional factors that led to the war). And d) it didn't even address the concept of civil wars and other forms of internal oppression (which is fine but if the goal of the organization was to eliminate all wars and make the world safe for democracy....). To say this entity was in any way, shape, or form an instrument of peace is a joke.......................................................................................P.S. And, yes, if a case can be made that Washington (who warmed us about "entangling alliances") and Eisenhower (who warned us about the "Military Industrial Complex") were America's two wisest Presidents, an equally solid case can be made that Wilson was the stupidest (just that Fiasco in Mexico alone is sufficient to make the grade).
