When World War II ended, majority of the countries involved in it had to rebuild. Some even had civil wars and continue it on and off. US is very smart. It takes away the potential leaders of those countries. Those countries are thrown into chaos. All kinds of problems set in. Famine killed most. UN pretends to come to help but just could do nothing.

So, US has no choice but to bear this HEAVY RESPONSIBILITY!
