Wilson faced:
- the breakup of the Ottoman empire,
-The new Russian State, communist, and its civil war,
- a bled-white France and England,
- and new now US global dominance
- and an end to imperial Germany itself a mere fifty or 75 years aggregated into a nation from principalities
- and no-longer secret political regional carve-ups of Sykes Picot,
- and various British promises to the Sauds who created a revolt, in Turkey's military rear and who now wanted the State they had bee promised
- and oh yeah the Jews who had gotten a promise
- also, and the Bolshevik Reds, in whose country the US still had expeditionary army fighting the Reds to restore the Whites

So he sent people without pre conditions or pre conceptions - what did they find?

They held hearings, many locations, they listened, rather than talking, they said the Arab woman, usually hidden, came forward to speak - as follows

The local voices opposed a Jewish State

This was TWO years after Balfour, and twenty years after the World Zionist Movement, 1890s, that started Jewish immigration or in-gathering, into the Jews' ancestral homelands

ONE HUNDRED YEARS LATER! King and Crain got it right! so, politely, STFU

The Arab rejectionism preceded Israeli nationalism /Israeli settlements /Israeli wars, / nakbah/ the notion and nation of 'Palestinian' - Jews were Palestinians under the British

Jews, who were freely and lucratively admitted by the Ottomans (who kept a lid on things), were now hated, openly so

so Arab rejectionism is eternal - THAT is a pretty good lesson ONE HUNDRED YEARS later

and Wilson's ignorant newbies got it right

This piece is just a hit-piece against W's Iraq war. Too bad.

WHO LOST IRAQ??!! now ranks with: who lost China/ who lost Korea/ who lost Vietnam/ and who lost all reason

We WON in Iraq under Bush ;

and Messiah Obama, -the Manchurian Muslim from Marx-ico - threw it away and thus the world in flames /100 years of western policies undone by the new Obama caliphate of blood genocide slaughter, war crimes and female sexual slavery open air auctions, the younger the better, and butchery,

Apres moi le deluge

All Bush's Fault, yadda yadda ...
