I believe that the answer the reader looking for is "Tora, tora, tora" meaning "Tiger".
Yes, the United States were well prepared for the attack on the Pearl harbor since it had broken the Japanese secret code.
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 Japanese launch code was "Tora Tora Tora" Tora translates into "tiger" in English.
The message "NIITAKA-YAMA NOBORE 12 08" was transmitted using Wabun Code (Japanese Morse Code) on December 2, 1941, signalling the go-ahead of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It was 5 days before the attack on Pearl Harbor.
When did U.S. break Japanese code. I heard it was before the attack on Pearl Harbor. If this is so why was the attack a surprise.
I think the command was TORA!TORA!TORA!(attack! ATTACK! ATTCAK)
The airport code for Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam is HIK.
Tora, as in Tora Tora Tora... Means "Tiger", but code for the Japanese Attack.
The Navajos. Their language is complex and only truly understandable to someone who has learned it from birth. It had the Japanese baffled.
Tora Tora Tora
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.

Operation Z was the Japanese name for what it referred to as the Hawaii Operation or, as the United States called it, the attack on Pearl Harbor. During the Russo-Japanese war Admiral Togo called the attack on Russian ships Operation Z and flew a Z flag during battle. This flag was flown from the Japanese Flagship during the attack on Pearl Harbor.
On December 7, 1941, 3,500 Americans were killed or injured during the attack on Pearl Harbor. The United States knew an attack on the country was imminent, after breaking the Japanese diplomatic code. When Japan started to attack, their planes were mistaken for American B-17s arriving from the West Coast of the US.
breaking the Japanese Navy's secret code.
No. The Americans apparently heard it across the radio code, but the Japanese did not inform them. The Japanese had sent a formal declaration of war, but it arrived too late. It was realized that delay would have a major affect on the response of the American public.
They were affected because they spoke with each other on what the Japanese were saying and when they were going to attack then also this started after the Pearl Harbor attack so when that maybe when they would've striked again they would know.
"Niitaka yama nobore" which means 'Climb mount Niitaka' was the code used to signal the launch of the attack on Pearl Harbour.
That president Roosevelt and other senior government officials knew the attack would happen, and would use it as an excuse to enter WWII. There is no shred of hard evidence saying this, just a lot of second or third hand stories. While the Americans had broken a Japanese diplomatic code, information on the attack was not sent in this code. All the Japanese would have had to do to short-circuit such a scheme, is *not* attack Pearl Harbor. Since they did, and it is inconceivable that the attack would not lead to war, what would such a conspiracy accomplish? The same thing that would have happened anyway!
Pearl Harbor was actually not a surprise because the US had many factors on why and when they were coming, such as .. - Washington sent out a letter but it came to later - the US broke a diplomatic code, that had message's sent fro foreign countries and planes to attack but they did nothing about.
Isoroku Yamamoto was a Naval Marshal General. He planed the attack on Pearl Harbor. Later in the war, in the Pacific, the Americans cracked the Japanese code for secret messages and found out the Yamamoto was flying in a Japanese bomber to inspect troops in the Solomon Islands 18 American P38 fighters were sent ( 16 arrived) to intercept his flight. They shot down 6 escorts fighters along with Yamamoto bomber it crashed into the jungle. It was a blow to the Japanese Army and Navy.
