This Day in the History of Pathetic Failures

On this day in 1946, the League of Nations met for the last time, in order officially to dissolve. The League was created after WWI in order to resolve disputes between nations so that war would not be necessary. It failed to stop Italy's invasions of Albania and Ethiopia. It failed to stop Japan's invasion of China. It failed to stop Hitler's bloodless occupations of Austria and Czechoslovakia and then invasion of Poland and later France. It just plain old failed to stop the resumption of WWI on a far wider scale.
Regarding the nearly as pathetic United Nations, following the next big war, they too will disband. Too bad we'll have to wait that long.
