Why did the Allies reject Wilson's plan?

They had been hit very hard by Germany in WWI and wanted retribution.


Wilson's Fourteen Points were geared towards open diplomacy and the preservation of peace. While some aspects of his plan were somewhat included in the Treaty of Versailles, the other allied countries (especially France) wanted a treaty that blamed and punished Germany for the war.
