Absolutely nothing. That's why it was such an incredible surprise.Michael Montagne

AnswerBreak down of peace talks between the US and Japan.

The USA created ECONOMIC SANCTIONS over Japan as it increase its aggressive forgien policy.

Also, the USA was not in WW2 however it was supporting the allied side. It attacked German submarines to defend its shipping lanes and support Britain in anyway possible, e.g. the Lend Lease Schemes. As Japan was in alliance with Italy and Germany, the USA then became an 'informal' enemy of the Empire Of Japan.

The attack of Pearl Harbor was inevitable. the United States were cutting back on oil supplies from the Japanese in return was retaliation of Japan. Knowing of the attack on pearl harbor maybe but going to a no. An attack on the United States from the Japanese, yes because of retaliation.

BECAUSE JAPAN DIDN'T DECLAIRE WAR ON THE UNITED STATES SO THEY WERE NOT PARPARED. AS A RESAULT OF JAPAN ATTACKING PEARL HARBOR THE UNITED STATES DECLEARED WAR ON JAPAN.
