What was America's reaction to the attack on pearl harbor?

They were shocked and their first action was to flee or take a few shots. -Alexa Most of them got in the airplanes or grabbed the closest AK47 or Machine Gun and just fired away at the Japanese bombers. And the weak spineless type fled. No offense to anyone!! Sm@rtGirl!!
In response to the attach on Pearl Harbor, the United States went to war against the Japanese Empire.
