Actually it once did - look at German and Japan.

Huge differences in the people, huge differences in how the war was fought (the people KNEW they had been BEATEN), huge differences in how the peace was administered (military proconsuls, not State Dept. fools).

Politically Correct war and “nation building” does not work.
