Fact of the Day: United League

After World War I, the League of Nations was formed as a group of countries working together to maintain world peace. With many weaknesses, the League of Nations failed to maintain its peace as World War II began. The League was ultimately replaced by the United Nations.

too bad UN doesn't have any more anymore 'thanks' to warhungry Western nations which constantly invade smaller countries not even asking if UN agrees or not

The UN does need work but I'm glad we have it - it's important.

I can't help but feel that if they had superpowers the League of Nations would have held up longer.

And now the United Nations struggles! I'm glad that it exists though, because at least nations are still trying to achieve peace. Better to have some conversation than none.
