    Thank you for the release of this interesting conference report. I read it with a particular interest for Versailles contributions or references. Paris and the second half of 1919, when the USA opted out of the treaty and left Europe to the Europeans, provide us with the complete set of parameters: 2.5 years US in Europe. The outcome seems to be zero. Would you in general consider other aspects and events from the said period altogether more important? In my opinion, this should be substantially denied. I would like to contribute at next conferences. Thank you
