It was also seen by many Americans that France and Britain were fighting good fight against evil and America felt that they should be assisting, if not fighting that evil along side France and Britain. The desire to implement his ideas in the world influenced his decision to enter America into the Great War. When the war finally ended, many of his 14 points were rejected because of France and Britain’s need for revenge.
