The US declared war on April 6, 1917. However, it took time to mobilize soldiers for the army, and US forces were not fully engaged in France until the Spring offensive of 1…918. This allowed the US forces to be engaged to the greatest effect along many of the lines of battle. After Germany lost most of its territorial gains from the early part of the war, they were forced to end the war on November 11, 1918. Although Woodrow Wilson opposed US involvement, he came to see it as unavoidable, given Germany's submarine warfare against US shipping. An attempt to draw Mexico into the conflict (the Zimmerman Telegram) also helped to sway US opinions.

We would have had to fight the Germans on our soil.
The U.S entered WW1 on April 6, 1917
On April 6, 1917, two days after the U.S. Senate votes 82 to 6 to declare war against Germany, the U.S. House of Representatives endorses the decision by a vote of 373 to …50, and the United States formally enters the First World War. President Woodrow Wilson pledged neutrality for the United States, a position favored by the vast majority of Americans. Britain, however, was one of America's closest trading partners, and tension soon arose between the United States and Germany over the latter's attempted quarantine of the British Isles. Fundamentally, as the massive Russian army left and the massive American army came in, there was not much difference or consequence, as America did not join the League of Nations,or make many post-war decisions for Europe besides Versailles
April of 1917 was the official American declaration of war on the Central Powers. Congress was driven to the decision by three things. 1. The 1915 sinking of the British Lusit…ania by German submarines. 128 of the lives lost were American. 2. The Zimmerman Telegram, which offered German aid to Mexico for an invasion of the US. 3. The speculation that if the Allied Forces lost, they wouldn't be able to pay America back.
The war might have lasted a few months longer, but by 1917 the German defeat was inevitable. For the last year of the war the German army was exhausted, constantly short on ma…npower and increasingly short of supplies. The allies had similar problems late in the war but in all cases were better off than the Germans, especially after the military collapse of Germany's allies.
The cruise ship RMS Lusitania was sunk by Germany killing 1198 people, among whom were 128 Americans. This act, along with the release of the Zimmermann Telegram in 1917, …galvanized the American people into supporting entry into World War 1.

Germany feared that if they could not defeat France before large American forces arrived they would have no chance. Germany launched its Kaiserslacht offensive in France in an… attempt to reach Paris. Because of their fear of U.S. forces they sent thousands of their best troops into the slaughter.
Well Even though the U.S. had been claming that we were neutral we were still producing products for France and Britian. When the Germans kept attacking our ships and ki…lling Americans Willson asked for the U.S. to enter the War.
One of the reasons was the British interception of the Zimmerman Note or Zimmerman Telegram. This was when Arthur Zimmerman telegraphed the Germany ambassador in Mexico to tel…l Mexico to be Germany's Ally. In return, Germany would get Mexico back their lost territory in the US in the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Nevada, California, and other surrounding states.
No, because Japan and Germany and their less-powerful ally Italy were Fascist countries that wanted to conquer other countries and peoples and exterminate and enslave peoples …that were not their race. Do some reading on how the Japanese treated those peoples they conquered and you can imagine just what the world would of been if Japan had won the war. The Japanese believed that whites and blacks and non-Japanese Asians were sub-humans that did not deserve to live or be treated justly and would rape, torture and kill non-Japanese races for sport. If the US had not entered the war the US might be under Japanese Fascism today.
