Description

Excerpt from America's Relation to the World Conflict and to the Coming Peace The way in which President Wilson directed America's entrance into the war has had a mighty eiiect on the public opinion of the world. Many of those who are disappointed or pleased say they are surprised. They would not be surprised had they made it their business this last year to understand the policy of their government. In May, 1916, the President made a speech which will be counted among the two or three decisive utterances of American foreign policy. The Sussex pledge had just been extracted from the Ger man government, and on the surface American neutrality seemed assured. The speech was an announcement that American isola tion was ended, and that we were prepared to join a League of Peace. This was the foundation of all that followed, and it was intended to make clear to the world that America would not abandon its tradi tional policy for imperialistic adventure, that if America had to fight it would fight for the peace and order of the world. It was a great portent in human history, but it was overshadowed at the time by the opening of the presidential campaign.
