The idea of a collective defense treaty between France, England and the Soviet Union seemed like a sensible one, however, the treaty never came to be for several reasons. France and England were repulsed at the idea of being in an alliance with the USSR because they saw Stalin for what he was, yet without the USSR on the east of Germany and the democratic nations on the west of Germany, no other treaty would be strong enough to stop Hitler.For Stalin, his concern for the anti-communist Hitler, could only be an alliance with nations to the west of Hitler. Under normal circumstances, Hitler would be powerless to defeat all three nations. This would be true even if the Axis alliance was fully in place. But Stalin wanted his cake and to eat it too. He rejected any alliance that involved a so-called League of Nations Covenant. This meant he had bad intentions towards smaller nations to the west of the USSR. From the view of England and France, the issue was now clearly seen. As the West saw it, Stalin would never agree to a peace accord unless the treaty "guaranteed" the independence of the Baltic states, Poland and Romania. On its surface, and to a naive world, Stalin seemed to present a reasonable idea. After all, Hitler had to be discouraged from taking advantage of his less powerful neighbors. He already had devoured Austria, and made the Czechs a broken nation ( with the help of France and England, and not to leave out Italy as well ). Nevertheless, the West was not fooled. Stalin's refusal to have the League involved, and his kind hearted idea to protect the smaller nations of Eastern Europe confirmed to the West that Stalin had designs on its lost territories from WW 1 and whatever other areas it could protect. Under the proposed agreement, Stalin could conclude that these smaller nations were threatened by Hitler and proceed to occupy them militarily. The West rejected this and believed that Stalin was dishonest. Thus ended the tri-part proposed alliance.
