Should countries defeated by war be helped by the victorious country/countries?

Background and context

The main subject that countries focus on when it comes to international aid to other countries is nation building. Should victorious nations in war also focus on nation building? Should they make an effort to help build the country that they went to war with and possible devastated in significant ways? Or, should they simply leave the country, even if that means that other countries have to take the responsibility, or that the state under consideration might just wallow in poverty.

Pro

Nation building and other means of international aid to war-torn countries help prevent further chaos. When it comes to nation building, the military force of the aiding country will most likely enter the country in need and basically take it over through means of exporting democracy to the country in need, like the war against terror in Iraq. This military force is meant to prevent and/or destroy any criminal or terrorist group which could damage and/or sabotage the democracy which is being put into place. These groups could take over the main country and military in some way and can cause a threat to the surrounding countries as well because of the fact that the chaos could spill over the main country's border.

Con

  • Nations have no obligation to aid aggressors after war. Wars are often triggered by aggressors. A nation that responds in self-defense has no obligation to rebuild after emerging victorious. If the nation was an enemy, then it should be left as an enemy and to realize that it has been defeated and should leave the attacked nation alone.

Pro

Once the country is helped, the country will be viewed as a safer, more reliable country to the world and could open up more for world trade and might even soon be viewed as a world power. Hopefully, if watched carefully, the country won't abuse that international power and will become a world leader in good works instead of works of greed and death.



When a country with world power helps a country in need, whether it be friend or foe, shows the world integrity and honesty and can help gain a better reputation for that country in the eyes of the world.

Con

The country could use this help and trust given by the countries that are helping and use it to finish what they started. Or terrorists could rise out of this because the country is still evolving and trying to make good out of what they were given. This could put the country in a very unstable condition. Terrorists and criminal groups or organizations tend to strike when the county is at its weakest state, and when its government is almost completely destroyed or completely destroyed, then they will have the largest opportunity to strike the nation.
