WWI was an inevitable conflict in which the US must become involved.

WW1 was avoidable, and the U.S. did not have to become involved. Unfortunately, you only posted one round, thus, I will post my entire argument here. First, the Lusitania, which was the so called "reason" we entered WW1, was NOT an American ship. It was a British ship that, unbeknownst to most, was carrying munitions. Britain claimed that it was a passenger ship, however, recent wreckage and documents support the German claim 100 years ago. The entire purpose of this sinking, which, again, was the reason the U.S entered the war, was to garner anti-German sentiment and rouse the American government to war. Due to the fact that America was never officially attacked, and neither was Britain (unjustifiably), the U.S had no reason to enter into this war. As for the war itself, it was avoidable. The war began over the assassination of Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary. Like any other politician's assassination, a war could have been avoided- if it were not for alliances.
