#美国大选# #历史上的今天# 1919年,威尔逊总统开启遍访全美之行,倡议美国加入国际联盟(美國美中報道)

“有时人们称我是一个理想主义者。其实,就是这样我才知道我是一个美国人……美国是世界上唯一的理想主义国家。”——伍德罗·威尔逊总统

#美国大选# #历史上的今天# 1919年的今天,伍德罗·威尔逊总统开启遍访全美之行,倡议美国加入国际联盟(League of Nations)。他希望该国际组织会帮助解决国际冲突,并防止另一场像美国刚刚摆脱的一战那样血腥的世界大战再次爆发。国际联盟最终得以创立,但美国却没有加入。直到另一场规模更大、毁灭性更强的世界大战迫使国家联盟以联合国的形式重新成立后,美国才加入了多国联盟。

“Sometimes people call me an idealist. Well, that is the way I know I am an American…America is the only idealist nation in the world.” —President Woodrow Wilson

#OnThisDay in 1919, President Woodrow Wilson embarked on a tour across the United States to promote American membership in the League of Nations, an international body that he hoped would help to solve international conflicts and prevent another bloody world war like the one from which the country had just emerged—World War I. The League of Nations was eventually created, but without the participation of the United States. America would not join a multinational league until after an even larger and more destructive world war forced the League to be reinvented as the United Nations.(来源:美国驻华大使馆)
