Wow. That sure called it correctly.  Of course, that was poor old Wilson's argument. Too bad that not enough people in the U.S. listened to him.

The principles of justice define an appropriate path between dogmatism and intolerance on the one side, and a reductionism which regards religion and morality as mere preferences on the other.   - John Rawls

[August 5, 1919] Republican Senators predict that next World War will be caused by Imperial Japanese Expansion in China

I've some say that either the Japanese invasion of Manchuria in 1933 or the Second Sino-Japanese War of 1937 are "better" starts to World War II than the German invasion of Poland. Maybe some day, the consensus will change on that.

There is an opinion that future historians will just merge WWI and WWII into one war with a long truce in the middle, just like modern historians see the one single "Thirty Years' War" of 1618-1648 where contemporaries saw the complex tangle of individual wars, alliances, truces, and changing sides.
