Who in their right mind would actually do this? Why were there so many brainlets?

These retards believe it is honorable to die to enrich some degenerate because he told them they are dying for their country, even though every imbecile can see that these wars are not benefiting nation or people and are actually harmful without redeeming quality. They truly are the lowest of the low. The brainletest of the brainlets. Watch them scurry and call you dishonorable for thinking of your nation instead of blindly parroting the lies the ultra rich and powerful filled their empty heads with.

>better join the army and die a miserable death in the trenches
To be fair many didn't know about trench warfare in 1914 and probably thought war would be far more simple and quick. There was the whole "home by Christmas" meme back then after all.
Plus if you lived in a country that was being invaded you might want to help defend it in order to avoid your birthplace being overrun by foreign people that hate the langue you speak and will loot your town/village and use your family and friend as forced labor.
It wasn't always about having some dumb loyalty to the monarch or whatever politician ruled you.

Franco-Russian alliance was a defense alliance. Meaning neither side was obliged to do jack shit if none of them are invaded.
>Germans encourage A-H to mobilize against Serbia (without German consent, A-H wouldn't be able to do jack shit)
>Russians partially mobilize against Austro-Hungary
>Germans mobilize against the Russians
>Russians enact general mobilization
>Germans declare war on Russia, France and invade Belgium
Fun fact: even after the German declarations of war, neither France or Russia was obliged to attack Germany because their treaty said that the war happens only in a case of a German attack on either countries territory. Meaning it was the Germans fucking fault

>escalating a local war between A-H and Serbia into a world war
Nice meme, the blanc check was made to keep other powers out of it. Willy and Nicky sent themselves telegrams and Willy said he would stay out of it if Nicky does and yet Nicky still moblilized his army and France also wouldn't have stayed neutral because they assured they would enter the war for Serbia.
>So you admit they invaded a neutral country and British declaration of war was completely justified
Belgium did pre mobilize 220.000 troops 5 days before the war and the UK entered the war because of other interests but yes that's true.

Which is why the French did agree to help Russia against Serbia, because it's a defensive pact?
>Germans encourage A-H to mobilize against Serbia (without German consent, A-H wouldn't be able to do jack shit)
The Austrians would've gone to war either way because of Hötzendorf, Germany tried to keep all others out and Wilhelm said to the Franz Josed he should simply take Belgrad as pledge.
>Germans mobilize against the Russians
Wrong, they moblilized on the first of August after Nicky didn't stop his mobilization.
>Russians enact general mobilization
Russian full mobilization happend on the 31th of July.
>even after the German declarations of war, neither France or Russia was obliged to attack Germany because their treaty said that the war happens only in a case of a German attack on either countries territory. Meaning it was the Germans fucking fault
Wrong, on the 20th of July, Russia and France concluded a pact which said that France would go to war for Serbia.

Americans didn't have a choice. Wilson forced Americans and called it volunteering. If you didn't volunteer you were beaten and jailed. And if you happen to be a German ancestry, you entire family was treated as traitors and humiliated.

The 'Diplomatic History of The Great War' published by the U.S. Government states that France declared war on Germany first, by about twenty minutes. This is based on time stamps on telegraph messages sent between the two countries, which is how they notified each other of the war.
