Reasons for Japan's attack

1. We placed an embargo on Japan prohibiting exports of
iron, steel, and aviation fuel.
2. U.S froze Japan's assets preventing them from buying oil.
3. Japan wanted to cripple the nearest U.S Pacific naval fleet in Pearl Harbor so they would be helpless to stop the Japanese.
4. U.S was giving supplies to Japan's enemies.
