Powers of the league

the league had set stages on how to solve problems: 

the 1st one was NEGOTIATION

this is were to countries would talk about the problem and comprimise a solution 

Failed because: the country could just ingnore what the league was saying

The 2nd one was: MORAL PRESSURE

this was were the league 'told' the country off and it was seen as a warning. It tried to make the country feel guilty 

Failed because: they could simply ignore what the league was saying 

The 3rd one was: ECONOMIC SANCTIONS

this is where the league tried to put pressure on the guilty country but asking all countries in the league to stop tading with them 

Failed because: none of the countries stopped trading because the loss of trade would effect there own country itself.

The 4 th one was: MILITARY FORCE

This is where the league would ask the countries to make their armies against the guilty country. 

Failed because: league had no army of its own, therefore only work if league members were willing to use their own armies
