Analysis Questions

What are the Main factors of America to declare war with Japan?

There are about 2 main factors that America declare war with Japan. The factors are they are on the opposite side and the event at Pearl Habor. The first factor that say they are on the oppsite side is a main factor because America kind of force Japan to stop invade South-East Asia. This made Japan wanted to get revenge. By sending the US Pacific fleet to Pearl Habor for Japan it means that America want war with them. They think like that because if they continue invade other country this fleets would stop them for sure so they think that it dosen't make any change if they attack the fleet at Pearl Habor. The second main factor that the US declare war with Japan is the event in Pearl Habor. In this event USA has lost many soldiers and aircraft carier. If the president didn't do any thing with this his people would sure make a revolution on him. Also it is resonable for USA to declare war becasue Japan attack them first and later on still invade other country in South-East Asia.
