An interesting viewpoint about World War I

"America should have minded her own business and stayed out of the World War. If you hadn’t entered the war the Allies would have made peace with Germany in the Spring of 1917. Had we made peace then there would have been no collapse in Russia followed by Communism, no breakdown in Italy followed by Fascism, and Germany would not have signed the Versailles Treaty, which has enthroned Nazism in Germany. If America had stayed out of the war, all these ‘isms’ wouldn’t to-day be sweeping the continent of Europe and breaking down parliamentary government, and if England had made peace early in 1917, it would have saved over one million British, French, American, and other lives."
The advocate for American non-interventionism? None other than Winston Churchill. He made the above statement to William Griffen, editor of the New York Enquirer in August of 1936.

  1. Considering it was the British who leaked the contents of the Zimmerman telegram, thus propelling the US into the war, I'd say Churchill was muddling facts.
