I believe Wilson was a senile old man and made an insane decision to involve the United States in World War I.  He should have been impeached and removed from office.

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.
So?

As for the treaties... Germany's territorial losses (especially to Poland) were entirely justified. The problem was French greed over reperations.
Explain how Danzig, a city with 95% German population, being given to Poland is justified.

Danzig wasn't given to Poland; it was basically made into a Free City under the protection of the League of Nations. Why do you think there are now two major ports in that area?
Rephrase: Why was this taken away from Germany?  Justify it.
