    They weren't. The most important one that he stressed was the right of self-determination. The delegates at the Versailles Treaty weren't interested in creating an amicable peace. They were out to take revenge on Germany.

    Wilson's 14 Points would have created a lasting peace with compromises that everyone could live with. The delegates wanted to destroy Germany with the intent that it never rise up as a "threat" again.

    The one thing they ignored was the resolve of the German people who refused to be destroyed.
