President Wilson addresses Congress in reply to Counts Hertling and Czernin: no general peace can be obtained by method of separate negotiations; all the nations in the war must join in a settlement. Trotsky announces Russia will fight no longer, neither will she negotiate for peace; he protests against impossible German terms, but states Russia cannot continue a war begun by Tsars and capitalists, nor can she continue to fight against Austrian and German workmen and peasants.
