Best Answer

Japan wanted raw materials (oil, metals, lumber, etc.) and were willing to conquer other countries to get it. The US disagreed with that concept. Officially, the US (with the exceptions of our 19th century wars such as the Mexican War of 1846, in which California, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexicao became US territory, and possibly the Spanish-American War of 1898, in which we took Cuban "rights", Porto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines...from Spain) believes in PEACEFUL methods of doing business.
