After the end of World War I the prospect of the League of Nations was at hand. The Treaty of Versailles had a lot to do with it. Wilson and the Internationalist whom followed him fought .
whole-heartily for the Treaty of Versailles and came up with nothing. The Senate was quick to resist any progress towards the Treaty of Versailles, especially the irreconcilables whom could not open their eyes for the light was to bright. In other words how could one stay such narrow minded about one's own domestic life only, after such a World Wide Conflict like World War I. The irreconcilables did it and were the destroying section of 12 members that demolished the chances of the treaty of Versailles. The strength of the opposition that Wilson had to face was just to great for him to work it out in the end.
But despite all of President Woodrow Wilson's efforts, the League of Nations was doomed to fail. Which is what one could be led to believe that that is what the whole just of the Treaty of Versailles was to become, just and opening to the League of Nations. From the very first day that Congress had a chance to vote it became obvious to Wilson that the League had a very slim chance of being passed in Congress, and without all of the World Powers, the league had a minute chance of surviving.
On November 11, 1918 an armistice was declared in Europe. Wilson saw the opportunity to form an international organization of peace to be formed. He acted rather quickly. On January 18, 1919 he released his fourteen points. Some critics say that "god" had ten commandments, and Wilson had fourteen. After congress had voted only three of Wilson's fourteen were accepted without dispute. And six of the others were completely rejected. Fortunately the League was compromised, must be from Wilson's hard-headed attitude of uncompromiseable and ineptitude that led him to allow this. Wilson then went to Europe to discuss the Treaty of Versailles.
