Bingo!

I was going to say exactly that. The US told the League of Nations to shove off after WWI so we ended up with WWII in which they were able to create the UN and have the US be a member. I recently saw a documentary on WWII stating that Hitler tried to negotiate peace with Britain after France surrendered but Churchill decided to drag the US into the war instead which created a much broader conflict and set up the geopolitical division of the Western Powers vs Communism and the consequential arms buildup that padded the pockets of the Military Industrial Complex for decades.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.
