UNCLE SAM'S EMPTY CHAIR


CONCLUSION

Of course we do not wish to send troops to Europe to settle petty troubles there. But we had to prepare to send 2,000,000 of them once and are now headed straight toward another situation in which we may have to do the same thing, perhaps before children already born are out of their teens.

If any real reason for sending troops comes, we shall have to send them anyway. But as Ivy Lee says:

"When we sit there with our spirit of unselfishness, with the known record we have for sympathy and generosity, most of the troubles will be settled without war. We can induce peoples to reduce their standing armies, we can induce them to compose their differences, we can induce them to look with a little more tolerance upon their neighbors. Nine hundred and ninety-nine cases in a thousand, of all conceivable disputes which might involve our sending troops to Europe will be settled by the very fact that we are sitting in conference, that we are giving our views, our unprejudiced and impartial opinion, as to what ought to be done."

In short, it is better to send a few police troops, like those we have had on the Rhine, to keep order, than a thousand times as many to fight in a world war.
