Victor Davis Hanson "One hundred years ago, on April 6, 1917, the United States entered World War I. The ongoing conflict ended just 19 months later with an Allied victory.. . .
"Defeat and occupation force an enemy to cease its aggression. Armistices without a definite result only lead to postponements — and eventually more war. (As with North Korea. TD). . .
"World War I’s terrible irony is that today its horrible carnage seems even more senseless than the far greater death toll of World War II, which ended quite differently and did not lead to another world war — at least so far."
