A reason some folks may have had for supporting World War I

From the point of view of the Allies. World War I ended with the creation of Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Poland, and Romania, countries that had been dominated by foreign powers for centuries. In a way, some of the fallout from World War I, on top of the crushing and terrible human cost, was the fulfillment of the revolutions of 1848, which was when people from groups that were subsumed under bigger empires first made moves for self government and independence.
