Everyone generally agrees that WW1 was one of the stupidest and pointless wars of all time. If you are like me, all you know about it is that some German or Austrian prince got assassinated and all of Europe went berserk over it. But I am not sure many people know much more than that. I honestly feel sorry for Woodrow Wilson. He has to go down in history as one of the worst US presidents ever. Not only did he sign the Federal Reserve Act, he also got us into WW1.
Back in the early 1900's, much of Europe was controlled by several monarchy's. The French Monarchy was overthrown by the French Revolution and the "Reign of Terror." This revolution is well known to be sponsored by the illuminati. But following the French Revolution, many other monarchy's remained. The Hapsburg Empire (Austian-Hugarian), German, Russian, and Ottoman Empires still remained. But in 1914, a group a young anarchist Slavs, called "The Black Hand" with the motto "Unity or Death", assassinated Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria in Sarajevo, Serbia. This assassination is credited as sparking WW1 after Austria invaded Serbia a month later.
What followed was a battle of Great Britain, France, and Russia against Turkey, Germany, and Austria. After years of trench warfare in France, the Allies were on the ropes After a few attacks by German U-boats on American civilian ships the Allies were finally successful in duping the US into getting involved in the war. When the US begun, they had no war infrastructure. The US had no military industrial complex. After declaring war, it took the US an entire year to train troops, and build tanks, planes and battleships.
Finally after the treaty of Versailles, the Russian Empire had fallen by the Russian Revolution and dropped out of WW1. The German, Austrian, and Ottoman Monarchy's ended in defeat and the European leaders divided up the Middle East and Eastern Europe and the mineral rights among themselves. In the end only the British Monarchy remained.
And that right there should tell you what WW1 was all about. 1. Destroy rival European monarchy's 2. Build up US Military Industrial Complex. 3. Divide up mineral rights in Middle East and Eastern Europe. 4. Communist Revolution in Russia. WW2 was just a continuation of what WW1 started.
