    Both Belgium and Luxembourg were neutral and Germany thought that invading France through neutral countries would catch France off guard. In fact Germany came up with the idea roughly a decade earlier and even claimed that they were trying to help Belgium stave off an attack of that country by the French. And it was the invasion of Belgium that brought England (who had a treaty with them) into the war.
    I did not mean to get sidetracked onto Belgium but here we go.

    The thing is that the USA did not enter the 1st WW because of Belgium - no, not at all. Belgium was over run at the beginning of the war in 1914 and the USA did nothing and at last the USA entered that war in 1917, and we said nothing about Belgium in our declaration of war.

    At that time the American public did not want to go to war, so the USA had to start up a draft as the only way to raise an army.

    The official reason for the USA to enter the 1st WW was to promote and defend democracy.

    We did not enter that war to liberate Belgium, and not as right against wrong, and nothing to do with truth or justice - no, the USA fought for democracy.

    Of course Russia was not a democracy, and even Belgium was and still is a Monarchy, and Britain claimed to be democratic but British rule in India was no democracy and Brits in South Africa was no democracy, and even the USA is no true democracy and in the USA at that time women could not vote and "Negros" could not vote in our USA.

    So the true history of the 1st WW is highly distorted by American propaganda.

    The Country of Germany was defending the weaker Austria from the war mongers Russia and France, and from Serbia who started the war with its illegal and immoral assassination of the Austrian Arch Duke.

    I never wrote that the U.S. entered the war because of Germany's invasion of Belgium. What I wrote was

    Note that I clearly wrote "England" there. AFAICT England and the U.S. are not synonymous. Please pay attention in the future.
