The unconditional surrender of the German forces at the conclusion of World War I presented the United States and its European allies with the challenge of establishing peace in Europe President Woodrow Wilson in January of 1918 presented his plans for peace in the Fourteen Points the most important of which he considered Article X which called for the League of Nations However at the Paris Peace Conference at Versailles the United States never signed the treaty or joined the League It was not the power of the liberals and conservatives of America that led to the final defeat of the Treaty of Versailles but rather the political ignorance inability and inflexibility of the President President Woodrow Wilsons ideas for peace were well thought of but in implementing his ideas Wilson made irrevocable mistakes In heading the delegation to the peace conference Wilson made a serious mistake in not including representation of the legislative body of the United States in not appointing Republicans to the commission As depicted in the Tribunes political cartoon the United States was becoming involved in foreign matters without the support of the Senate The Constitution of the United States calls for the Senate ratification of all treaties to end wars WEB DuBois commented on the situation of the American schism and world peace in 1921 when the League of Nations met for the first time He believed that the United States was not appropriately represented in peace conference He believed that such a disgrace on the world front was due to Wilsons idiotic stubbornness and inability in compromising with Republican politics He stated that other World leaders didnt necessarily want the Treaty of Versailles and it was silly to believe that all the ideas proposed by the United States would dictate the future of other nations The United States showed an all or nothing approach to the matter and as a result sacrificed economic and political power
