The US, due to its imperialist tendencies, had possession of the Philippines, which Japan wanted to occupy due to its strategic position, raw materials, and its own imperialist tendencies. Knowing that they would be forced to fight the United States if they invaded the Philippines, the Japanese made the executive decision to severely cripple the US Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor before launching an invasion of the Philippines. This attack on December 7, 1941, galvanized the American populace under Roosevelt to enter World War II against the Japanese. In response, Hitler and Mussolini declared war against the United States, drawing the US into the European front as well.

It didn't. The Spanish American War was almost half a century before World War II and had nothing whatsoever to do with Hawaii. Michael Montagne In the recent book "Flyboys" (highly recommended) the author makes some interesting connections between European/Western imperialism and the Japanese imperialism that led up to World War II and the attack on Pearl Harbor. During the Spanish-American War the US kicked the imperialist Spanish out of the Americas, but in some ways, replaced it with an American brand of imperialism. The Japanese believed they were exercising the same sort of power over their own backyard in Asia.

The war in the Pacific was the portion of World War 2 where we battled the Japanese forces. We fought in the Phillipines, Japanese islands, Guam, Guadalcanal and many other islands through out the Pacific. The cause was that the Japanese wanted to expand their territory by ruling as much of the world as possible and in that effort they had attacked countries all around them. The island countries of the Pacific were just part of that effort.
You are thinking of the Pacific Theater or PTO (Pacific Theater of Operations). It is the U.S. versing the Japanese.
