USA's Response to Japanese Aggression - Post 1938
Prior to Japanese Aggression, the US was strictly isolationist, and wanted to stay out of international affairs.
Because Japanese expansion did not affect US interests, there was little support for economic sanctions to punish them.
Monetary support for Nationalist China was provided by the US, starting in 1937
In January of 1939, a moral embargo was placed on Japan as a response to Japan's statement. Planes and aviation sales stopped, along with US' credit to Japan.
After 1938, FDR used the Presidential Powers Oil Loan with China in order to go against Japan's statement of "a new order in East Asia"
Following Pearl Harbor, the US decided to go to war against Japan. The attack united American public opinion.
