Did the US really start the war by stopping the long-standing trade agreement with Japan?
Japan drew the US into WW 2 when they launched an unprovoked attack upon our Pacific Fleet while at peace, Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941. Japan launched the attack because of many reasons, one of which was an oil embargo placed upon her by the US & Gr. Britain. The oil embargo was placed by the US & Gr. Britain because of Japan's aggression in the Far East, esp. in Manchuria & China. Japan wished to create the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere," an excuse to exploit Asians & reap all of Asia's natural resources for Japan's our desires. No, the US dd not do a thing to provoke an attack by the Empire of Japan, so say the 1,103 sailors that died Dec. 7 aboard the USS Arizona.

Trade with Europe began in 1543 after the Portuguese arrived in the country. Several events led to the closing off of trade by 1650 during the Edo period. First of all, th…e slave trade led to large numbers of Japanese people being sold into slavery and traded throughout Europe. Second, Catholic missionaries began widespread conversions to Christianity, and the Jesuits moved some Christian activity underground, resulting in the 'Hidden Christians.'
