Best Answer

Based on the experiences of the US in World War One, a large number of Americans did not want to engage itself in World War Two. It might be called a "peace movement" or a case of "isolationism", either way, the US did not want to become involved in World War Two. There was of course, a group of people who saw an immense danger posed by Nazi Germany. However, the Atlantic Ocean seemed at the time of 1939 an adequate barrier from war torn Europe. Also, the invasion of the Soviet Union by Hitler created a British, Exiled French and Soviet alliance that many Americans wanted to avoid. The prospect of being allied with Stalin was not held in high esteem.
