Pearl Harbor, Hawaii & the surprise attack
Japan desperately wanted to expand their Empire, beginning in 1931. When the U.S, Netherlands, and Great Britain became concerned of Japan's actions they cut off Japanese assets and urged harsh economic restrictions, cutting off 90% of raw materials Japan need for war production.

Your Choice- Causes of WWII
I suggested a policy of appeasement to deal with Germany and Hitler.
Ultimately, appeasement failed and was a cause of the second world war.
The Japanese began with an air attack. They initially hit the airfields which destroyed many aircraft. Shortly after, torpedo planes hit many ships including the USS Helena, Utah, and Raleigh. Bombs were also dropped hitting many more ships. The second wave further damaged the Navy Yard.
Your Choice- Treaty of Versailles
Compensation for the war
After the attack, the president conducted a speech summarizing the terror that had happened. In this speech, he mentioned how much damaged was caused and how many lives were lost. He also mentions how a state of war has existed between the U.S and Japanese.
...very many American lives have been lost...
Hitler/Germany wanted revenge because of the first world war. Also, Hyper-inflation and the Great Depression in 1929. Next, German pride and Nazi Ideology, along with the failure of appeasement.
A few main terms of the Treaty were that Germany should accept the blame for starting WWI. Germany also had to pay 6,600 million pounds for the damages of the war, along with giving up land that was to be distributed to other countries. They were also only allowed to have a small army and six naval ships, not including tanks, airforce, or submarines.
