Best Answer

FDR had been stirring up conflicts in Europe since around 1935 in the hopes of getting the United States involved in a war to create jobs after his New Deal programs failed.

The war in Europe didn't involve United States' interests, and so Congress wouldn't give FDR the green light.

To force their hand, he arranged for oil embargoes around the Pacific and then lured Japan to America with promises of much-needed oil.

First, however, they were required to purchases licenses to buy the oil and then Roosevelt reneged on selling them at the last minute. This infuriated the Japanese, provoking them into attacking Pearl Harbor.

In doing this, FDR's provocation of Japan to attack the US was an act of treason.

The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor because they wanted to control the Pacific Ocean.
The Japanese purpose was to destroy Pearl Harbor to make the Americans force less, useless and purposeless. The outcome resulted in the opposite.
So that US would surrender and not fight back in WW2.
Essentially, the Japanese attack the US Navy at Pearl Harbor so that the United States would not be able to interfere with Japan's expansion in the Pacific. While the attack slowed the US response, it did not prevent intervention.

Japan knew that if Pearl harbor destroyed, USA could give up and never fight one another because Japan seemed to be coward of USA or can't even faced USA to fight with so he sailed towards pearl harbor and destroyed it thinking that USA will not involve in any war later because of losing it harbor.

Japan intended the attack as a preventive action to prevent the United States Pacific Fleet from interfering with its planned military actions in Southeast Asia against overseas territories of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and those of the United States.

The Japanese were under the assumption that the United States were a pleasure-chasing nation with a weak morale that would crack under the pressure of a Pacific island-hopping war. The intention behind the attack at Pearl Harbour was to deal a huge blow to the US Navy, the destruction of which would lead to the surrender of the United States.

The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbour in the hope of destroying the American fleet, and prevent America from interfering in the Japanese invasion in Asia. Instead, it brought America directly into the conflict. Though many ships were damaged or sunk, with a huge loss of life, the aircraft carriers were at sea and safe.
