What bothered the Allies more was not the colonies Germany had, but rather her very existence. By finally uniting the entire Holy Roman Empire (minus Austria) Germany became the continent's greatest power, even eclipsing France (I'm not counting Britain because it is not part of the continent). Yes the Germans did have several possessions in Africa and the Far East, but these were very minor particuraly in comparison to the British and French Empires. It was not German Imperialism that frightened the Allies, but rather the fact that now there was a Germany that clearly had imperialistic ambitions and a massive and powerful military capable of realizing those goals.
