Japanese airplanes flown from the decks of Imperial Japanese Navy aircraft carriers attacked and destroyed battleships of the United States Navy, at Pearl Harbor, United States Territory. An obvious act of war. Correction, Pearl Harbour wasn't part of the US until the 60s and it was the US that caused Pearl Harbour by cutting off Japans oil supply and refusing to come to an arrangement with Japan so Japan was given no choice but to bomb Pearl Harbour.
