Restoration of Alsace & Lorraine to France
Taken by Germany in 1871; part of
repayment and reduction of power can be incorporated into the
restoration of Alsace-Lorraine to France.
payment of reparations by Germany
To both diminish the influence of
Germany and enforce reparations for damage done both financial and
to the country itself during the war, (at least) temporary control
of a certain percentage of the mines in the Rhinelands would go to
France to help pay, rather than drain Germany of whatever
resources it has left.

Union, and dividing Germany by granting sea access.

I have a hard job tomorrow of following my
instinct but yet still listen to my people back home who want
revenge. I am constantly getting pressure to punish Germany and
stop them completely from recreating WW1ís actions. Newspapers
werenít any help either planting this seed into everyoneís
heads and letting it blossom almost destroying my moral and
logical instinct. I know that Germany canít get away with what
they did but I need to make sure they have the possibility of
regaining their strength. I know that Germany in the future if in
the right from of mind could be a great help and necessity to
Britain's economy. When theyíre back on their feet they will
once again be one of the top economic powers of Europe but I
canít let them over take us. If they get to a good stage again
maybe we could even become allies. I absolutely canít let Italy
get away with her plot to destroy Germany forever.
There will be a time when well both have
something each other needs. Iíll have my empire and they will
have their brilliant trade capabilities. Yes that will work quite
well. But wait, what if they get a good empire. I canít let that
happen, what can I do? I know Iíve got to get their colonies to
become part of my empire. But what if France wants them? No I
canít let her become strong, she would destroy Germany. Iíve
got to get those colonies.
Iíve still got to think about my people.
May be if we get her fleet they will be happy, you know not having
much to defend themselves with. I donít know Iíll have to
cross that bridge when I come to it. Now back to my empire. That
really is the most important thing I have got to get out of this.
Next time, if there ever is another such as this then I want to be
prepared to fight it alone if I have to. I need to increase our
empire as a first priority. Maybe I could get the Turkish colonies
as well as the German. Thatís it, thatís what I need to do but
the rest wonít go for it.
How can I convince them? What do they need
that I can give them? It looks like the only way around this is to
walk straight through it. The only way Iím going to get Wilson
to agree is if I make them mandates, well I suppose thatís
better than nothing if I support his idea of free trade that would
also help. Next thereís Serbia, Iím sure if I support their
Port of Trieste idea theyíll be willing to help. Then thereís
Poland. I know they also want the colonies and they are thinking
about becoming allies with France. I canít let that happen. If I
convince them we could share the colonies maybe theyíll not join
them and join us instead. Yes, thatíll work. Then I will have a
good alliance back up behind me if this ever repeats itself.

Old territory, such as west Ukraine, Silesia,
access to Baltic Sea and much of Northern Austria-Hungary must be
back to Poland on the grounds that they were once part of a Polish
empire that was swallowed up by Russia into non-existence. This
left Duchy of Poland after the Napoleonic Wars non-existent. Thus
on this basis these grounds must be returned to Poland.
Return to National
Much of the public sympathy of the war has
been taken up by places like northern France, where they have
suffered heavily with war damage. While Italy treats the people
who have suffered so greatly from the terrible war, it seems that
France may be destined to get its own way, and take up much of the
reparations. While this is fair, places like Italy, who have also
lost their young men and are in terrible debt, should not be
forgotten. For while Western Europe has taken much of the damage,
places indirectly connected with the war should not be left out.
Italy herself joined the war under the Treaty
of London, a secret treaty, which I am now at liberty to discuss.
This promised Italy land along the Adriatic coast, in exchange for
entering the war by the side of the British. Italy has fulfilled
its side of the bargain completely, and while all the allies did
not agree upon the treaty, Italy still has a written deal that
states that Italy should now gain land along the Adriatic. Italy
wishes to obtain the port of Fiume,
the Trentino, Cisalpine Tyrol with its geographical and
natural frontier, as well as Trieste, the counties of Gorizia and
Gradisca, all Istria as far as the Quarnero, including Volosca and
the Istrian islands of Cherso and Lussin, as well as the small
islands of Plavnik, Unie, Canidole, Palazzuoli, San Pietro di
Nembi, Asinello, Gruica, and the neighbouring islets.
Italy not only wishes to gain land, but also
reparations, for Italy is also in great debt, as is much of the
rest of Europe. As it seems that Europe seems to be bearing the
burden of this war debt, we believe all should share the debt
evenly, and we believe that America should erase all the debts
owed to her by allies due to the war. Though this may seem
unreasonable at first, I believe it is unfair that America should
not also have to suffer slightly economically due to the war,
while the Europeís economy collapses. Italyís economy is on
the verge of collapse, and her people sit on the verge of civil
war. We want promises of military support in the eventuality of
To the same end, Italy wishes to express its
support for President Wilsonís League of Nations. In our view,
this would be towards the improvement of not only the diplomatic
status of Europe, but also the rest of the world. I wish to show
praise, on behalf of my country, of President Wilsonís
Germany has made the rest of Europe suffer,
and there should be no sympathy for her. Due to this, we wish to
show support for a clause giving Germany complete guilt for the
war. We also wish to show support for the complete disarmament of
Germany. Germany has shown she is untrustworthy, and should not be
tempted to cause another war by leaving her military. To this end,
I propose a complete reduction of Germanys military force. A
maximum army of 10,000 men, no navy or air force, and no heavy
armoured machinery, such as tanks and artillery. I believe
restrictions like this should stay in place for 50 years, and
after that periods, a joint commission should decide whether
Germany is suitable for re-armament. If they deem so, this should
be gradual, so not to suddenly give great power over to Germany
that it cannot handle. Though these restrictions are necessary,
Germany should still be given support, as if she is weak and
without power, communism may infiltrate Europe.

It is in my and I am sure the rest of the
worlds' interest that Germany should be treated fairly and equally
as a nation of Europe. We
do not believe that any country, no matter how powerful, should
take advantage of a weaker one.
This we consider unfair and barbaric.
We are all I hope civilised nations and have
all won a great victory but let me remind you of one important
saying: treat others as you would others treat yourself.
Our AIMS are simple and based on my fourteen
points are as follows:
We, as the USA believe that Germany should
keep most of its land, reduce its army to a moderate level but not
left unprotected. Another idea is to minimise its navy and its air
force to a reasonable amount, leaving Germany to be able to defend
itself against any power in Europe. If Germanyís military power
should increase by even one war ship we would take immediate and
The USA has thought of a creation that could
prevent other wars in the future. This would be called the League
of Nations, of which every country here should be a member.
Therefore making us stand strong against communism and
determination for all people and countries of Europe is essential.
We believe that Germanyís reparations
should be kept to a minimum level, meaning there would be a slight
strain of them to think about doing wrong in the future but not
armies of each country should be relative to their size.
