Well let me put it very simply Richius. If America had not gotten involved in World War I in 1917 then Germany would have won within a year. French lines were already breaking and French morale was being destroyed by the Germans. If American reinforcements hadn't come at the time that they did I think you would have seen a huge retreat, and possibly rout, by French troops further into France. So what would have happened would have been a Germany triumphant. They probably would have dictated terms towards the French and English comparable to the OTL Verseilles Treaty. It makes a great counterfactual history but the point is that it would have been a horrible defeat for America's allies in Europe.

Why do you say that?  I'm not criticizing you, I'm just curious.
We were helping to perpetuate the imperialism of the Allies.

Uh huh like Germany wasn't an imperialist power as well.
