Japan's only advantage was to attack with the element of surprise and destroy America’s navy as quickly as possible.On 7 December 1941, over 350 Japanese aircraft attacked the US naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, destroying or badly damaging much of the US Pacific fleet and causing thousands of casualties.
America placed a major embargo on oil which would hinder their military useless.FDR ordered all Japanese assets frozen. But FDR did not want to cut off oil. As he told his Cabinet on July 18, an embargo meant war, for that would force oil-starved Japan to seize the oil fields of the Dutch East Indies
Japan hoped that America would accept defeat and that Japan could create a fortress that would stretch across the whole Pacific Rim. First, it intended to destroy important American fleet units, thereby preventing the Pacific Fleet from interfering with Japanese conquest of the Dutch East Indies and Malaya and to enable Japan to conquer Southeast Asia without interference.
