How Pearl Harbor Affected the US
Why Japan Attacked Pearl Harbor
US prevented Japan from acquiring resources by:
-Placing an embargo, stopping the shipment of steel & scrap iron
-US teamed up with Britain and Netherlands to stop all oil trade with a blockade, to weaken the military
-Japan decided to attack the US first at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii which was the nearest military base to Japan
-Japan's goal was to neutralize the U.S. Pacific Fleet, so Japan could rebuild their military and get a hold of new resources,

of Pearl Harbor
The attack of Pearl Harbor brought the US into World War 2. Without Pearl Harbor, the US wouldn't have joined the war that early. It's possible Hitler could have finished his secret atomic bomb project and used the bombs, ruling the world and rewriting history.
