>I understand the US basically strangled Japanese trade & resource supply
lines, in an effort to remain the dominant power in the region.

There was a little matter of Japanese atrocities in China ... the Rape of
Nanking was a notable horror even in the time of Stalin and Hitler. The U.S. had
basically told Japan to abandon its conquest of China. (Japan's position was
apparently that it was necessary to conquer China to defend it from European
conquest, an excuse which might arguably have had considerable validity a
generation earlier. But by the 1930's Western Europe was already frowning on new
conquests (although not quite ready to let go of old ones.)

The United States had no obligation to supply Japan with raw
materials.

Japan could have chosen to give up its dreams of conquest in
Asia, but chose instead to attack the United States.

Fun fact about pearl harbour: America knew it was coming.

And another fun fact about WW2: It was pretty much a direct result of the
treaty of versailies (sp?).

Fun fact number 3: Just before germany and japan were invaded, they started
solving their financial trouble by the government printing money (greenbacks)
and issueing it directly to the people, sidestepping the banks.
