    It is so much easier to make enemies than friends, in life as in international relations. The real measure of a government's proficiency is that ability to make friends.

    . Germany, on the other hand was destitute and Japan was in even worse shape. If we didn't help them get back on their feet, we would probably be having WWIII by now. As it is, we now have trusted allies who want to help us build a better world. I'd say that's a much better solution than the old conquer and occupy formula. We took our enemies and turned them into friends. It was a win-win formula from which everyone involved benefitted. We weren't in the same position in Africa.
