at a guess, id say the Americans. just going on the slight fact they were bombed into oblivion by the Japanese
WWII had been going on in the Pacific for 4 years and in Europe for 2 years before the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. This marked the US entry into the war. The US government had reason to believe that the Japanese might attack US interests in the Pacific at some point, but because of the distance between the Japanese islands and Hawaii, they did not expect an attack at Pearl Harbor.
No otherwise, There wouldn't be as many deaths.
Yes; a few people knew about it before it happened
Yes, the code was already broken right before the attack on Pearl Harbor even started. President Roosevelt already knew about the Japanese was going to attack Pearl Harbor, but he didn't know for sure if it was true.

The bombing of Pearl Harbor was the reason. Roosevelt made an announcement that the Japanese bombed us and we are going to war. Sources: my 8th grade textbook
Some sources indicate that the higher ups knew.
The day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, FDR said December 7th was going to be infamous. Then he declared war.
the Japanese didn't talk on there radios.
Yes it was. The US were trading with the Japanese to help the war efforts of the Japanese and themselves but they got fed up with the pointless war going on between China and Japan so the stopped trading with them. The Japanese didn't like that and they were desperate for supplies so the bombed them.
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.
they probably weren't going anywhere because the US did not want to be in the war. it was japan that bombed that place and made the US go into war.
Japan did not actually start the war, it had been going on for two years before we were involved. But on December 7, 1941, they bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, aiming to destroy our fleet before we could join. They almost succeeded.
The USA government did not know about Pearl Harbor Raid Prior to the Japanese attack on December 7, 1941. They knew about it After the Japanese attacked. They had no idea it was going to happen Before it took place. The Japanese had great security and were able to catch the fleet at Pearl Harbor off guard. The US government is not perfect and does not know what is going to happen all the time. We were caught off guard on December 7, 1941, and September 11, 2001.
they did not know that was going they did not have a problem with the Japanese
Because the Americans had no idea that the Japanese were going to attack dumb dumb.
There are books written that state we did know.
The Japanese Army was happy with the various attacks on the British, Dutch & Americans (including the Pearl Harbor attack). The Japanese Army was the main force behind the idea of going to war with Britain & the US.
They intercepted a mesage from Japan to its naval fleet.
to cripple the united states pacific fleet. because the Japanese already knew they where going to be at war with the united states.
Port, harbor, marina.
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.
No, Hitler did not know of any specific Japanese military plans. Hitler wanted the Japanese to attack Britain & the United States, and the Japanese hinted that they were planning to do so. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was a secret sneak attack that onlt a few in Japan knew about in advance.
The Americans knew of the Japanese plan to attack them, due to decoders. The problem was that the Americans didn't know when or where the attack was suppose to happen. The attack happened well after the Americans received the news that the Japanese were going to attack, so they were caught off guard. No one could really predict it was going to be Pearl Harbor.
