Jon lol it was the Treaty of Versailles that I'm talking about. The League of Nations was founded as a result of this. But the Treaty itself is all binding even today. That's why I don't understand our invasion of Iraq. We should have been stopped a long time ago. But every country needs us for something so they stood by and let us go in and then we bullied other countries along the way to help our murdering selves.
Bonnie, the United States did not ratify the Treaty of Versailles. The Treaty terms may indeed be binding today, but it is not an all-encompassing document; it outlined the provisions for ending the war between the Allies and the Central Powers (Germany in particular). In other words, it has absolutely no bearing on the actions of the United States in Iraq; a moot point, considering that the United States (as a non-signatory) would not be bound to observe the terms of the Treaty, even if it DID encompass the affairs of the Middle East.
In regards to your statement that "we" should have been stopped long ago, the United States was not the only nation to invade Iraq.
If anything, a better example would be the United Nations charter.
