    The Italian proposals:
    Germany is to blame for starting WWI.
    They wanted the war and they even planed the
    Schlieffen plan to go after France then Russia.
    Thier punishment for these crimes against the Allies and the imperial forces of italy shall be the-demolishmeant of Germany's army and to give back all land that they have claimed in war.
    How we can prevent another war with these rules is that the allied nations will support Germany-from invasion of another country and protect them. Germany shall have a national defense force to protect themselves from invasion forces but they are not aloud to invade other country's or have a national army for invasion purposes.

    Yes. Germany was responsible for causing WWI because of the "blank check" given on July 6th, 1914 which allowed Austria-Hungary to attack Serbia with Germany's support. They also pushed Austria to go to war.
    The case for arguing that Germany (or at least the German General Staff) bears the key responsibility for unleashing World War 1 is more complicated than, for example, stating that they invaded Belgium or that Kaiser Wilhelm did or said this or that.
    The case is that the German General Staff did everything it could to push Austria-Hungary into being completely unreasonable and then into going to war. In other words, the (modern) argument is that Germany - or at least its General Staff - started the war in effect by proxy.
    Germany was the senior partner in the Triple Alliance, and Austria-Hungary would never have risked war with Russia without full and unqualified German backing.
    In Germany the machinery of government was not well co-ordinated at the top, and the General Staff was not under political control by 1914. Instead, the military were barking out orders to Chancellor Bethmann-Hollweg and the Kaiser.
    From about 1920-60 most German historians would broadly have agreed with the conventional American view on this question. In 1961, however, the German historian, Fritz Fischer, after a careful study of the German and Austro-Hungarian archives, came to the conclusion that the German General Staff had indeed plunged Europe into war in 1914. In Vienna there were doves as well as hawks. Serbia accepted most of the points in the Austro-Hungarian ultimatum, and the doves argued very persuasively in favour of acceptance. The consternation of the German General Staff knew no bounds and it immediately used its considerable influence to strengthen the position of the hawks. Fischer concludes that the government of Austria-Hungary was placed under massive pressure to escalate the crisis instead of defusing it.
    Fritz Fischer stresses that he doesn't accept the Versailles "war guilt clause", which treated every German man, woman and child as responsible. He places the blame on the German General Staff, which wasn't under effective political control, but almost a rival government within Germany, at least in matters of defence and foreign policy.
    Many reputable German historians accept some version of this view, and Fritz Fischer was awarded the Bundesverdienstkreuz,1. Klasse (Federal Order of Merit, 1st Class). He is respected and not regarded as some zany outsider. Over the years one of the main criticisms to emerge is that he paid insufficient attention to underlying tensions.
