What were the pros and cons of the pearl harbor attack?
If the US wouldn't have cut off the oil supply to japan there wouldn't have been any problems. But with that being said, the encampment of Japanese people had to be taken into play. Japanese people caused a threat against the united states. Any Japanese person could have been a spy or anything of that matter. so the taking into place of the encampments had to be done. The Cons of the encampment were that innocent Japanese people were taken ahold of. But as they always say better safe then sorry.
By attacking the Pearl Harbor it brought the US into World War 2. That improved allied chances to win the war with our participation and continued resources. When the Japanese attacked our aircraft carriers were not in port - that was the best point of the attack for the US. The fact that the world was at war created jobs and improved the economy witin the US.
