"The peace treaties are yet another means to continue war"

Prime Minister of Rumania in the Rumanian Parliament on 1st July, 1920:
"We cannot rest until we totally ruin the Hungarian people
economically and militarily, because while there is even a spark of vitality left in Hungary, we cannot feel secure."

Viscount Rothermere:
"The new boundaries had no justification, whether ethnographic, geographic or economic. They set up in Central Europe a permanent condition of inconvenience, friction and discontent which, if it is not remedied, must inevitably lead to another war."

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu:
"There was a saying at the beginning of the War that it was a war to end war. I think so far as the Central Empires are concerned, if I may parody that saying, that this is a peace to end peace."
