Way too lenient on Germany because the Americans and Brits wanted to menage them.

Inflicting on Germany what Germany had done to Russia (Brest-Litovsk) would have done much to defang the Germans. Also the UK actually heping France to enforce the treaty as they should have. Or Germany paying their debts instead of weaseling out.

Obviously didn't do much good. Germany should have just been partitioned

As Ferdinand Foch said again : "This isn't a peace, this is an armistice of twenty years". Every kraut who dare saying that "Boo hoo hoo Versailles treaty was unfair ;_;" need to compare with the 1871 "peace" treaty where France had to give one of their wealthiest region away and pay 5 billions of franc-or for reperation.
We didn't have Uncle Sam to back us.

Fucking krauts. The cancer of Europe since 843.

The Eternal Germanic.
>>
>>54882708
Both.

Basically the stupid thing was letting Germany believe that it was a nation.

For centuries there was no Germany. There were shitty duchies and counties who more-or-less were tied together, but spent more time fighting each other than co-existing (Hence why Alsace-Lorraine is french and not germany, contrarily to what retards say).

But then, the biggest of autists, Bismarck, decided to unite the world of Untermenschs to satisfy their superiority complex, even though Germany had no world relevancy.

What we should have done was destroying the heart of german nationalism.

It was what happened in 1945 when historical Prussia was divided between the USA and the USSR :^)
>>
>>54882758
you can say the same thing about Austria but look how well they embraced the germans in ww2
they are just krauts in denial
>>
>>54882708
You can argue for both. Actually enforcing the treaty, like preventing Germany from remilitarizing the Rhineland would have been a good start. But really, partitioning the whole country (at least separating the Ruhr) could have done much as well.

But at Versailles, the French were pretty much the only ones who wanted to dismantle Germany while Americans in particular so more interest as keeping it as whole as possible because of commercial considerations. The end result was a bastard treaty that did little to weaken Germany in the long run while France had its industrial heartlands devastated by the war, its usines pillaged and its mines flooded by retreating German troops.
>>
>>54882851
Alsatians explicitly don't want to be part of Germany, though, and they were apparently very tsundere when they were annexed.

>>54882844
You couldn't really stop Germany from unifying.
The people wanted it for a while, regardless of their stupid government system, and I don't see any reason why they shouldn't have been able to.

>>54882946
I think partitioning/balkanizing the country would've actually been unjust. As it stands, Versailles would've been mostly alright if it had been enforced strictly.
>>
>>54883096
Yeah, having the USA taking a bigger role in international affairs and clearly enforcing the treaty alongside France would have been the best option since the UK would certainly have followed suit. The American Congress chose otherwise though so we'll never know how that would have turned out.

>>
>>54883276
It would have been difficult to get the American public to support taking an active role in enforcing the treaty. Many of them thought our participation in the war had been unnecessary, and we didn't really have enough of a problem with Germany to justify continued presence in Europe.

>>54883388
The only element of Germany's punishment that I think was unjust was forbidding the Austrians from joining them.

An enlarged Germany would've undoubtedly caused a lot of butthurt, but I think it would've been alright if this Germany was strictly demilitarized, occupied and forced to pay.

Factually Versailles had two problems, it conceded too much to Germany and wasn't enforced even going as far as to stimulate foreign investment into Germany.
Also Britain didn't follow through with the defense agreement, and the French politicians were too weak to fuck Germany's shit up when they refused to pay and when Germany didn't respect the terms regarding militarization.
Naziboos try to paint it as something horrible but seriously, it was not a worthy peace to the saddest, utterly tragic, greatest, most destructing war the world has ever seen.

Attributing sole responsibility to Germany was nonsense.

Attributing the greatest responsibility to Germany however is entirely factually accurate, as is attributing sole responsibility to Germany for opening the Western front in an especially cruel and horrific way through the rape of Belgium.

No it's just how wars work. Do you think the peace treaty was supposed to be some kind of fair punishment based a country's "responsibility"? No, they won so they could just do whatever the fuck they wanted to do. I mean losing a war is not supposed to have fair consequences.

Far too lenient, the concept of "Germany" should have been permanently erased.
>>
>>54892609
You don't understand. Prior to WWI there was no precedence for writing something like that into a post-war settlement. The normal procedure was -- together with reparations -- to "forgive and forget". Writing article 231 when the German Empire acted no different than any other great power of the time had to have unforeseen consequences.

Only a German could be this historically delusional.
>>
>>54894103
Well, you show me then the treaties that do something like article 231. Can't find anything like that in the peace of Frankfurt, or in the documents of the Congress of Vienna or the Peace of Westphalia.
>>
>>54893390
There was no "normal procedure". There are no rules in international politics and war. It all depends on the balance of power, and when the balance is in your favor, you can do whatever the fuck you want (eg. partition of Poland). The reason why a lot of wars ended with just reparations or small land gains was because nation were rarely completely defeated. Those wars just ended, because continuing them would not be worth it for the winning side. But in wars like WWI the fighting didn't end until one side was completely unable to continue it (or at least came very close to that point), which means they are defenseless and the winner holds all the cards.

You still don't understand. I'm not talking about the reparations.
