AnswerThey didn't join the league of nations because they were worried about sending out soldiers and people to fight that they didn't want to lose/die. America didn't want the British and french ruling their country because they wanted to be independent. they thought it would be like signing a blank check. spending money that they didn't need to spend was vital for USA because that's what they needed to stay a strong country.

The League of Nations failed because it did not have total membership, withdrawal was easy, it's Security Council was a law unto itself, it did not have a standing army... It was replaced with the United Nations.

The United Nations replaced the League of Nations. The League, created to avert war, saw itself fail as the world sled towards World War II. Seeing the future, the League of Nation's Assembly transfered enough power to its Secretary General to enable the League to continue. The Palace of Peace lay empty for six years. By the Tehran Conference, it was clear that a new body was necessary, without many of the League's weaknesses. It was agreed to create the United Nations. On the 12th of April, 1946, 34 lonely delegates met in Geneva to dissolve the League. At that time it had assets of $22,000,000, including the Palace of Peace and their entire archives, which were transfered to the United Nations. The League of Nations returned reserve funds to its member states, and settled their debts. On April 19th, 1946, the President of the Assembly, Carl J. Hambro of Norway, declared "the twenty-first and last session of the General Assembly of the League of Nations closed." It ceased to be, on the 20th.

The League of Nations failed to prevent World War II because it had little authority. It was immediately apparent at the outset of the war that the League was essentially powerless.

The United Nations was created from the alliance of wartime victors and did not exist at the time World War 2 began.

The League had no power other than the power of the member nations. Those nations were not disposed to enforce peace, since several of the members were the ones that started WW 2.

The fact that the US chose not to join after supporting it's creation was a factor.

First of all, action against a country required a unanimous vote in the League of Nations. As a member of the League of Nations, Japan also had to the right to veto the action. Several members had valuable trade agreements, and were reluctant to vote to apply sanctions on Japan since it might hurt their agreements. As a result, the League of Nations was a failure, and Japan remained in Manchuria.

The league of nations failed in Abyssinia because it was too weak and frightened of Italy to stand up against Italy. the league was frightened if they upset Italy's prime minister Benito Mussolini, that he may not help the league if Hilter were to attck again, so they basically let Italy do what they wanted because the the league was weak and defenseless. Hope that helped
