The United States had broken the secret code used to send messages between Tokyo and the Japanese embassy in Washington DC
Japan attacked The US on December 7, 1941.
Japan thought that the US was going to attack them so Japan attacked us first even though we were not going to attack them. And pearl harbor ended when Japan ran out of planes on there carriers.
Japan attacked the US, and later that same day attacked British colonies near Japan.
The US stopped exporting steel, aviation fuel, and scrap iron to Japan. Japan got mad and allied with Germany and Italy and eventually Japan attacked the US. On the day of Dec. 7, 1941, diplomats from Japan were meeting with Congress in Washington to make peace with the US. Well, as that was going on, Japanese fighter planes attacked Pearl Harbor.
The Us and Japan were at war, after Japan had attacked the US. Japan had refused to surrender to the US.
They pooped on their chests.
Because the Japanese had attacked the US
Actually, it was Japan that attacked the US first. We retaliated by entering into WW2. To end the war with Japan, the US dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This caused Japan to surrender, marking the end of the war.
No of course not. However the Americans did find out that Japan was going to attack them, but they didn't know when and where. They found this out by cracking the Japanese code, that was being sent through. Japan wanted the attack on Pearl Harbor to be a surprise, so the US would not be prepared to defend themselves. This is why the U.S. lost many men, planes and ships when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. Bottom line, the U.S. had no idea that Japan was going to attack Pearl Harbor.
Japan strengthened it's air defenses.
It was the attacked that made Japan surrendered.
Without warning, Japan attacked Pearl Harbour.
