The threat of War for the US wasn't apparent until at least the beginning of 1940, as an example, there were only 800 Officers in the Marine Corps at that time. That number increased to 37,067 in 1945. Wartime production wasn't placed in gear until the German attack on Poland in 1939.
The US joined World War 1 only in 1917 - three years after the war broke out.
The US was prepared for ww2 because they are and have always been addicted to war. It brings new technologies and keeps other countries in debt.
Going into it, no. US armed forces lacked the training and experience needed to hold their own.
You did not say which war (we have had several) but I cannot recall that the US was EVER prepared for a war that we got in to- we have had to play catch up a lot.
The US military is always prepared in to fight for the interests of the American people.
Yes, both the US and Great Britain would still be prepared to fight the World War 2 without the passage of the Lend-lease Act.
It did not. There were a few actions planned and some prepared, but none actually helped.
