Prior to the outbreak of World War II, the United States and Japan came into conflict primarily due to one cause: Japan's aggressive expansionist policy. With both economic stability and imperial glory in mind, Japan sought to expand its power at the expense of nations around it. The United States sought to limit this expansion or stop it entirely.
