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.

The reason to why Japan wanted to start the war was because they had thought they were the strongest of all nations. The Japanese had also influenced the citizens by saying th…ese tales. That is why Japan decided to join Germany, they saw the amount of land they were taking from other countries, so they wanted land too.
When fullscale war erupted between china and japan in 1937 the us asserted that japan had violated the policy in china and the Washington naval conference agreements?

I remember as a boy reading in an old LIFE magazine the account by one of the diplomats -- maybe the ambassador. the niceties were preserved. Th American embassy staff in Toky…o were interned under quite comfortable conditions, and after a time -- perhaps a few months -- they were exchanged for Japanese diplomats who have been in the US at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack. If I remember correctly, the exchange was carried out by a Swedish ship, which picked up the Japanese officials in the US, went to Japan (via Mozambique, controlled then by neutral Portugal) and picked up the Americans and brought them home. ------------------------------------------------------ The previous respondent is mostly correct with some exceptions - the American embassy staff were interned but not comfortably and were barely fed - many lost considerable weight by the time they were exchanged. A Swedish ship did take the Japanese staff to Mozambique but two Japanese ships carried the American staff to Mozambique. After the exchange, the Swedish ship returned to the US with the Americans and the Japanese ships returned to Japan with their staff. The ships had the words "DIPLOMATIC" painted in huge letters on the side to prevent their being attacked by submarines. The exchange included many more people than just diplomats. Tourists, businessmen, and missionaries were also trapped in Japan when the war broke out and were also interned and exchanged.
APEX: Korea The US and Japan discussed the Japan-Russo War, and why it was of great importance to the Japanese to take control of Korea. They feared that, if… left to their own devices, Korea would sign an agreement with Russia and attack Japan. They also discussed the importance of good Asian-American relations, in case the need for American intervention in the war should arise. This memorandum was between US Secretary of War William H. Taft and Japan's Prime Minister, Katsura Taro, on July 29, 1905. The notes from this meeting weren't discovered until 1924, though the US denied that it was a "secret" meeting.

Though it wasn't the only reason, the trade embargo deeply affected Japan. Japan obtained the majority of its resources (especially fuel and oil) from other countries. By bloc…king trade to Japan, who was already recovering from sever economic recession, they economically drained Japan. As early as 1938 the US began a series of economic and covert military (Flying Tigers) actions against Japan. The largest was the cancellation of the 1911 commercial treaty with Japan. The Roosvelt administration increased these under Secretary of War Stimson and Treasury Secretary Morgenthau began a series of economic actions that gradually put a stranglehold on the Japanese. Among these was the Export control act which blocked all exports from US private companies to Japan. In July of 1941 the Roosvelt administration launched a double offensive, by stationing long range bombers and moving the Pacific fleet towards Japan in Pearl Harbor, Wake Island, and increasing the Philippine military presence, (actions similar to the Missiles in October the US would face from Russia/Cuba years later), Roosvelt convinced both the UK and Holland to cut off all oil supplies to Japan. These actions forced what Stimpson wrote in his diary as the actions he hoped for to force the Japanese to take the first shot. The Japanese did take action on December 7th by attacking the US base at Pearl Harbor and against the Philippines.
In 1853, the U.S. government demanded that Japan (then a closed country) reopen trade with the West. In 1854, the U.S. government (through gunboat diplomacy) forced the Japane…se government to sign a treaty, opening Japan up to trade with the U.S.
