Alliances between any two or group of countries are not simple. There are legal agreements, ideological considerations and national interests.
There are central Asian nations which have very complex relationships - for example Kazakhstan, which belongs to the Russian dominated CSTO, the Chinese dominated SCO and has a NATO IPAP. It will play to all three as its interests and the situation changes.
Also there is a big difference between military allies and political allies. Socialist Chile may work against the United States on global political issues but is a major military ally for its own security reasons. Reality gets really strange with situations like Pakistan and Yemen.

When and how did Great Britain and the United States become such strong allies?

Culturally similar, tensions existed between the US and the UK from the Revolution through the end of the Civil War. WWI and WWII were the building blocks of the trans-atlantic alliance. The US and UK are allies through mutual national interests. The UK needs US military support to pursue its interests and the US needs British bases throughout the world to project its power. Many key US bases are actually on British territory. Also, if the US wants to project its power somewhere, its politically useful to have even a token British presence on the gunline and at the UN Security Council. Also, since its usually illegal for either country to spy on its own citizens, its handy having a friendly and trustworthy power to do it for you and vice versa.

Could England have won the war against Hitler alone if the United States hadn't joined the Allies?

Answer . If England was in the war alone (without the U.S. and the USSR) she would have either come to terms with Hitler or eventually been defeated by Germany. If it was just England and the USSR then Germany probably would have been defeated by the USSR with a little help from British Bomber Command and that's about it..

What sort of aid did the United States provide the Allies in 1940 and 1941?

Britain and the United States developed a system called Lend-Lease, whereby the United States lent food and armaments to Britain, whilst the British leased various islands and air and naval bases in the Caribbean and the Pacific to the US government. Because of the strict neutrality laws (isolationism) in place in the United States at the time, Lend-Lease was arranged as a commercial transaction and was, therefore, considerably more advantageous to the United States than to Britain commercially. However, since Britain would have starved to death without it, the deal may seem a little fairer than it felt to the British government of the time.

Why did the United States choose Britain as allies?

I don't think this is a valid question. Britain was at war with Germany from September 1939, the US only after Pearl Harbour. So the US did not "choose" Britain as an ally, we simply ended up with common enemies, ie Germany and Japan. Between September 1939 and when the US entered the war, Britain had very little help from the US, which stayed neutral in this period, and would probably have stayed that way if Japan had not attacked. In that case it would have been doubtful if Britain could have defeated Germany.. Apart from being 2 countries separated by a common language..... The US did help Britain considerably before Pearl Harbor, Lend-Lease was crucial. The policy of defeat Germany first was also necessary, not just for Britains aid, but that of Russia and the whole of occupied Europe. Although the effort put into D Day by the British was immense, I agree with the above, the British couldn't have done that alone. Europe would be a very different place without the US joining the war.

Who was in the warfare between the Democratic Republic of this country allied with the Communist World against the Republic of this country and it's allies namely the United States?

The world of democracy was referred to as the "free world", and the communist countries were referred to as, "communist countries". The leaders of those two factions, were referred to as the "super-powers." The super-powers were the United States, and to a lesser degree, Great Britain and France, representing the free world. The super-powers representing the communist nations were, The Soviet Union (Russia) and Red China (Communist China). There was NO war going on between these super-powers...so it was called a "cold war." The communist super-powers were supporting a smaller country to fight in their place, and that was North Vietnam. This fight (war) was "HOT". "Hot" meaning real bullets and bombs, real killing, and real buildings being destroyed. In a "cold war" no one gets hurt, no buildings are damaged, real bullets are not used (blanks are used during manuevers).. The allies, consisting of the US, South Vietnam, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and the Philippines were fighting (in a "Hot") war against North Vietnam and the Viet Cong (VC-communists living in South Vietnam), who were SUPPLIED with aircraft, tanks, AK-47's, artillery, Surface to Air Missiles (SAM's), patrol boats, etc. from the Communist Super-Powers of the Soviet Union & Red China.

Why was the United States allied with the Koreans in the Korean War?

The question misrepresents the way the war started. North Korea was in the Communist bloc while South Korea was oriented to the free world. The United Nations was actively engaged in keeping the peace at a time when it was less than five years in existence. When North Korea suddenly invaded South Korea with the purpose of unifying the country, the US called for a special session of the Security Council to restore peace. Oddly, the Soviet Union was at the time boycotting the meetings on an unrelated issue. If the SU had been present, it certainly would have vetoed any action, but as it happened the Security Council ordered the UN members to come to the defense of South Korea. The US and 15 other nations sent troops, By that time only Pusan in the southern tip had not been overrun by North troops. The UN forces, under the command of the US Gen. McArthur, pushed back and continued almost as far as the Yalu River in the north, but the Chinese Communist army joined the North Korean side. When the battle line returned approximately to the original dividing line, there was a stalemate and eventually an armistice, although to this day there is no peace.

What if Japan had been an ally of the United States in World War 2?

Most historians would agree that not a whole lot would have changed in terms of the outcome of the war itself. If Japan had been an ally of the US during the war, or even simply been a neutral party, chances are good that it would have simply sped the demise of the Nazis. Most Historians and Political Scientists would also agree that it would have saved lives and resources, and would have significantly changed the shape of the world in terms of global politics in the future as many of the current tensions in Asia arose from the conduct of Japan during WWII. We'd more than likely be looking at a very different world today had Japan not engaged in military action during World War II, and it likely would have significantly sped the end of the Nazi reign of Europe.

What factors help to explain why the united states and the soviet union became rivals instead of allies?

The US wanted the USSR to free the Eastern European Nations,especially Poland. . Stalin and the Politburo did not want to give them theirfreedom. . Both countries had become superpowers but the atomic bombs ofthe US put them one notch above the USSR. . Stalin would not let the US into Berlin for awhile but theyeventually let them in. However, Stalin blockaded the food andgoods the Eastern Berliners needed so the US flew the goods intoBerlin. This came to be known as "The Berlin Airlift". This did notput the USSR into good favor with the US. . The severe differences over governing the European nationscaused the Cold War to spark. The US has always been against the idea of communism. With theSoviets helping North Korea build their communist army and thethreat they posed to an atomic war, they became instant rivals forthe United States. During WW2 the US and USSR were externally very strongallies against Nazi Germany although the USSR had several veryactive spy rings inside the US busy stealing secrets. However after the war all this broke up over the basic issues ofthe dichotomy between capitalist and communist economic systems andphilosophies. Correction, the "The Berlin Airlift" supplied WestBerlin not East Berlin. Stalin already controlledEast Berlin and hoped the blockade would starve the West Berlinersinto agreeing to form a single unified Berlin that he controlled.

What did the united states join the allies and help to win world war 2?

I think you wanted to ask why did the US join the allies etc,tough question because the USA at the start of WW2 was against the idea of involvement in another European war,both the government and the general public,however the German blitz on London gained Britain much public support in the US,also US ships were being sunk by UBoats in Germanys attempt to starve Britain inflaming public opinion,by now the US was by now acting beyond its neutral position and supplying Britain with war goods,so the stage was set,the Japanese attack on pearl harbour in dec 41 did the rest,with the US now at war with Japan,Hitler now declared war on the US,so now the US that had been torn between its policy of isolation,and sympathy for Britain and China(China had been invaded by Japan 2 yrs before the war in Europe) was now commited to the cause of ending German and Japanese aggression,finding common ground with Churchill US president Roosevelt now found himself also allied with Stalin the leader of the USSR that had been struggling for survival after Hitlers invasion of Russia, So it was Hitlers mistake to declare war on the USA at a time when Britain was still holding out,and the soviet armies were giving the Germans their first major setback at the gates of Moscow,Roosevelt had promised the US public he would keep them out of the war,but in December 41 first Japan then a few days later Germany gave him no choice,

Do you think the allies would have won the war if the United States had not become involved?

That's one of those wonderful questions that has been debated for a long time, and will forever be debated. The US was involved in the war almost from the beginning. While not sending troops, the US was selling goods to the British almost from the start, and in 1941, passed the "Lend Lease Act", which made it easier to circumvent American laws outlawing selling equipment to England while they were fighting the war. The US was leaning towards joining the war on the side of the Allies the whole time- FDR often talked of how England was alone, fighting for civilization against the barbaric Germans. That said, let's say the US doesn't actually get involved any more than they were before December 1941. Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union was starting to stall by that point- by January 1942, the Germans had failed to take Moscow. Leningrad and Stalingrad became horrific battlefields where the Germans eventually were defeated. The Germans were thrown back by the Red Army and by summer of 1943, the Russians were attacking the Germans, rather than the other way around. Bear in mind that the Allies in the west didn't even attack Germany in any meaningful way until Operation Torch- the invasion of North Africa- which happened towards the end of 1942- and even that, they only faced a tiny portion of the German army (the Axis forces in Africa were mostly inferior Italian troops supported by better German troops). The Allies invaded France, finally creating the second front that the Soviets so badly desired, in summer 1944. The Red Army was in Poland and driving towards Germany by that point- the war ended less than a year later when the Red Army took Berlin and Hitler killed himself. So my point is that the European theater was fought and won mostly by the Russians. By the time the US was even involved in Europe in any meaningful way militarily, the Soviets had already started pushing back the German military. I don't want to discount the hard work of the American, British, French, Polish, and other Allied troops. Their efforts absolutely helped end the war, and ended it far faster than if the Soviets were forced to fight it on their own. But I think the war would've been won by the Allies if the US hadn't actually joined the war. You might then ask, but what about Japan? Well, that's an interesting side point. Japan had fought a short and bloody war against the Soviets in late 1930s, notably one particular battle called Khalkin Gol, where the Red Army totally thrashed the Japanese Army in a border clash. The Japanese made peace with the Soviets and never again dared to attack them. The war in Asia ended when the US dropped nuclear bombs on Japan, but also when the Soviets declared war on Japan and invaded Japanese controlled territory in China. Don't forget that Japan had signed on to the Axis powers in 1940 (Tripartite Pact), and the US had been quietly supporting Britain, as already mentioned. And in another point, it was almost impossible for the Japanese to avoid a confrontation with the US. Relations between the two had been strained for years. Japan had invaded China in the 20's and the US opposed that; the subsequent trade embargos by the US really hurt Japan badly, which is partly why they so badly wanted to conquer Indonesia and French Indochina. Pearl Harbor was just Japan's way of saying "we're sick of talking, let's fight." and it was a huge mistake on their part. This is one of those interesting discussions that'll never be resolved. I'm sure people will disagree with my above assessment, but that's the nice thing about this- the Allies won and we can discuss it!

How much financial aid does each allie of the United states receieve?

According to Forbes, the US Business Magazine, the US by its ownfigures pledged a total of $ 48.4 billion in aid in 2012 andactually paid out $ 33.2 billion in that year. Almost half of thatis 'military assistance', so that includes also nice juicy ordersfor the US defense industry. . Other forms of aid also often take the form of a spending budgetfor orders with US industries (same thing in many other donorcountries for their industries) so a considerable part offoreign aid ends up as orders and jobs in the US or other donorcountries themselves. The 2012 figures are more or less par for thecourse, so a calculation that you might want to make over a forinstance five year-period could be made by simply multiplying thatfigure by 5. . Since the US gives aid in some form to 95% of all the world'scountries, a complete list would simply be too long to reproducehere. If you are interested in one or two specific countries, thebest thing to do is to google 'us aid to < name ofcountry > in < year >' .
