If France did not send an army in 1923 to help Poland against a Soviet aggression,France could not have helped Poland .From the beginning on,Poland was on its own :there was no French army in Poland in 1920.wm wrote: ↑28 May 2021 22:59That the US intervened against Iraq despite no treaty obligation is a non sequitur against "states do not fight for alliances."
If the Soviets had attacked Poland in 1923, France would have helped Poland but wouldn't send an army to Warsaw through Germany for the simple reason the Franco-Polish alliance didn't require it.
If the Franco-Polish alliance did not require France to send an army to Warsaw, this alliance had no sense at all :it was only hollow blah blah .
And Poland knew it and knew that no one else would solve Poland's problems .
France had no reason to fight for Poland and could not prevent the defeat of Poland . And the opinion of a lot of French was that France was better off without Poland .And the Poles knew it .
And I am still waiting for examples of states who went to war because they signed a piece of paper .
