Can you pay someone for beating you in a war???

I came across a Facebook page which was promoting an idea that Ataturk and other nationalist freedom fighters of Turkey won the war against the strong allied enemy forces. They used to ask “how did they do that?” and then to answer their own question they used to say “actually, Ataturk and other nationalists were funded by west and they were allies of enemy.”

To those people who beieve this to be true, I question:

If you earn something, would you pay someone to snatch it from you? No!
So when Britain and other enemies defeated Ottoman Empire and took their lands, why would they pay someone to snatch those lands back from Britain and other forces?
This just do not make sense!

The fact is, when Turkish nationalists forces started to liberate  Turkey from enemy occupation, the western powers were running out of weaponry and troops. They were not able to control their occupation in Middle East. This gave a massive chance to nationalist forces of Turkey and they fought back their lands and won their freedom.
