"- It had no military backing to enforce any action that it might need to take. For example when Japan invaded Manchuria in 1931 other member States were reluctant to get involved because China was not in their sphere of influence. Japan simply shrugged their shoulders at the threat of LoN sanctions and withdrew from the LoN. Similarly when Italy invaded Abyssinia in 1935 the sanctions imposed on Italy did not include coal/steel/iron production, all vital for manufacturing weapons. Consequently the LoN was not taken seriously. Therefore the threat of economic sanctions was not enough without strong combined action from other members and the threat of military action to back up the sanctions.
- No US, as a fast expanding superpower the US wanted it both ways, to be able to export to the world, but not to participate in the global comunity. Europe and Asia needed US military power to back up sanctions and the threat of military action, but the US was undergoing a policy of isolationism.
- As the structural weaknesses became apparent strong nations left the LoN (eg Germany, Japan) and simply ignored any sanctions imposed, the other nations, principally France and Britain realised that getting the organisation to do anything took too long, and preferred direct diplomacy with Germany, bypassing the LoN altogether."
