World Affairs: In his first “State of the Union” address, US President Woodrow Wilson celebrates a state of international peace: “the country, I am thankful to say, is at peace with all the world, and many happy manifestations multiply about us of a growing cordiality and sense of community of interest among the nations, foreshadowing an age of settled peace and good will. More and more readily each decade do the nations manifest their willingness to bind themselves by solemn treaty to the processes of peace… There is but one cloud upon our horizon. That has shown itself to the south of us, and hangs over Mexico”.
