  Fourteen Points - MSN Encarta
Fourteen Points, name given to the proposals of President Woodrow Wilson designed to establish the basis for a just and lasting peace following the victory of the Allies in World War I. The 14 proposals were contained in Wilson's address to a joint session of the U.S. Congress on January 8, 1918.
Opposition to various points on the part of the European Allies, however, developed at the conclusion of hostilities, and the attempt at practical application of the 14 points exposed a multilateral system of secret agreements between the European victors.
In order to secure support of his 14th, and most important, point, which called for the creating of an “association of nations,” Wilson was compelled to abandon his insistence upon the acceptance of his full program.

 President Wilson's "Fourteen Points" (1918)
The Allies, along with the Unit ed States, were, of course, anxious to keep Russia in the war (a vain hope given the ideological estrangement between the two sides) and it was partly in response to Lenin's intervention that Wilson decided to make a statement on war aims.
It was not easy, however, to bring Britain and France to the side of moderation as this would have required certain adjustments to their war aims that they were unwilling to make (assuring freedom of the seas in the case of Britain or not forcing severe reparations on the Germans in the case of France).
Treaty of Versailles, however, went far beyond the moderate proposal of the Fourteen Poin ts and left a legacy of bitterness and recrimination among the Germans, whose government had signed the Pre-Armistice Agreement on November 5 on the presumption that the Fourteen Points would largely shape the resulting peace treaty.

In his Fourteen Points, he seems to assume that his audience has prior knowledge of the problem that any particular point deals with, thus he does not describe any particular problems in his points, just the solutions.
