They were concerned that by joining a league or alliance, the country would be obligated to defend and support other nations, which could potentially lead to another war. They believed that it was important for nations to remain independent and not involve themselves in the affairs of other nations. Therefore, they opposed the idea of a League of Nations as they saw it as a potential threat to national security and sovereignty.
