Their basic strategy was to attack and demoralize. They had told their citizens that an attack on Pearl Harbor would result in a war that the United States would not be able to endure because we were not racially pure and as a result did not have the courage to fight for what we believed. Unfortunately for them, they were wrong in the 40's. But today it appears that their assessment may have been correct.
