Provoking the Japanese? We told them that they needed to get out of china cuz they had invaded it and if they didn't we would stop shipments of oil and other goods we didn't provoke nothing Japan just decided to mess with the wrong country.
That is such a cart-load of stinky, fly attracting poop.
Regardless of what you try to accuse america of knowing, It is the JAPANESE who dropped the bombs on Pearl Harbor. No one forced them to cross a thousand miles of ocean and commit 3 aircraft carrier groups.
You're hatred and desire to blame America for everything evil has blinded you to the fact that other people do wrong things also. Maybe even worse things.
I admit that my view on American society is, at present, tainted, but when discussing the matter, try to reiterate the difference between American people and the US Government.

Despite you're spastic world-view, people are responsible for their OWN actions.
Im sure I could find some website that would lend to a arguement that the Nazi parties actions were reactions of other countries.
That in no way takes away from their own actions they are indeed responsible for their own actions.
Weapons serve both hero and villian alike they are neither good or evil by themselves those are descriptive terms that are only reserved for man and their actions.
Too try to picture a world were everyone burns there weapons and says no more is some wishful thinking.
Japan got militaristic because they lost patience in there democracy. Japan went and invaded Asia. So we did the right thing by not giving them what they needed to take the rest of China (know that I look back maybe we should have let Japan keep China). We cut of the oil we were selling them. We had the right not to trade with them. They were going to use the oil to fuel airplanes to bomb Chinese civilians. It wasn't our fault they got angry. They got inmature so they bombed Pearl Harbor.
