Turning the other cheek is not an accepted US tradition.
The Bombing of Pearl Harbor led to World War two.
No, WWII had already been going on before the USA became involved. Germany (referred to as Nazi-Germany when Hitler was its Führer or leader) had started wars with its neighb…oring countries who called the USA to their aid & we supplied them with units, supplies & equipment as-the bombing of Pearl Harbor then allowed us to get militarily involved.
Japan wanted the US's territories in the Philippines, so the US cut off all of their resources from Japan. In response, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor.
Yes, although some Americans apparently don't accept that it was a "World" War until USA joined in, which was immediately AFTER Pearl Harbor attack.
they officially entered WW11

The bombing of Pearl Harbor basically caused United States to enter the war both against Japan, and because of a German declaration of war, against Italy and Germany. This mad…e it more likely that the war would end with German and Japanese defeat sooner rather than later.
In World War 1
World War II
In US in WW2
Yes, as stated in President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's declaration of war speech that followed Japan's surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, as exemplified in the documentary vide…o on Vickie Gail Miller's facebook page. Quite explicit.
