The Articles were a document that acted as a plan of government, but it loosely bound the states. The reason for the loosebinding was because it was believed that as little power as possible should be exerted upon states, and that states should have the most power. So the United States was not a country, it was a group of independent states that worked together. But soon enough, people knew the new government was not working, so the Articles were thrown away (figuratively) and the constitution replaced it.

The Articles of Confederation needed a congress to appoint and enforce the laws. They needed that because the Articles did not have enough power to appoint or enforce the laws.
