I don't think there was any "love affair" between FDR
and Stalin.  After WWI there was a powerful
isolationist movement in this country.  Our entry into
WWII was delayed by the "America First" movement, a
member of which was the American hero Charles

Also, there was fear of the rise Communism.  And who
better to fight the Communist that the Facists?  

Even before the US entered the European front, we had
arrangements with Britain, e.g., Lend-Lease policy. 

At the outset of our involvement, Stalin pushed for a
second front.  Instead the US and Britain push through
North Africa, into the Mediterranian.  Basically, the
Soviet Union breed the Nazis with their own soldiers
and citizens until we finally invaded Normandy.

“We must face the fact that the United States is neither omnipotent or omniscient — that we are only 6 percent of the world’s population; that we cannot impose our will upon the other 94 percent of mankind; that we cannot right every wrong or reverse each adversity; and therefore there cannot be an American solution to every world problem.”
