In the 1850s, the relationship began with the poor drowned when Kaunda or Perry forced the isolated nation of Japan to open its port to the world, knock, knock, it's America, much to the chagrin of many Japanese who lived in a society still basically in the Middle East. Eras that didn't really possess the technology to do anything about it with the cannons of American ships trained on them, hey, you're going to open up the country or what Japan quickly took this lesson to heart and modernized at the fastest rate of any nation ever. defeated. the Russians in the Russo-Japanese War just fifty years later, it was at the end of this war that the second blow to the two nations' relationship came when American President Theodore Roosevelt, who chaired the peace talks, did not believe that the Russians had to pay for the war.

The reparations angered the Japanese people and sparked anti-American riots that resulted in anti-Japanese activity in the United States after World War I. Japan again felt mistreated by the United States. Because the London Naval Treaty is limiting the size and number of their warships just as they were becoming a major player wishing to extend their influence to neighboring territories after breaking with the treaty feeling it was unfair, the Japanese They began to spread their influence with the public outcry of the United States denounced him, ignoring this. Japan invaded Manchuria in 1931 and then China proper in 1937 in 1941, although the Japanese had learned one of the realities of life the hard way: China is big and Japan is small in comparison, and although they were winning victories. the invasion force had stagnated and the Chinese nationalist army became increasingly competent after almost everyone had sent advisors there and the most recent was the United States who also sent material.
The Japanese also took parts of Indochina in a half-invasion, half-deal. with France as one of the benefits of the accession pact, but to do all this the Japanese have relied heavily on foreign imports for the war, mainly oil imports from the United States that were completely stopped after the invasion of Indochina when the US froze their assets completely, it stopped trade, severely hampering their ability to wage war and this panics the Japanese military, leaving them with only a couple of

option

s to actually rectify it, none of which were very good, the first one was delivered to the US as a demand, that is, leave.
China, which was a complete failure in the high command ranks as too much cost had been invested and would be seen as a defeat or a surrender, as I am sure you know the Japanese were not interested in the latter, was a attack north towards the Soviet Union helping Germany, but after Mahon that move was not seen as ideal, the third

option

was called nanshy paper or southern expansion doctrine, which would be an advance towards Southeast Asia, including the Philippines and beyond, to capture the resources there and bring them to the co-prosperity sphere of Greater East Asia, you have no idea how many times it took me to say that to feed the Empire and I'm sure at least some of you have been waiting to mention that. since it was Japan's rationale for its expansionist policy and it's actually very interesting, but it's not entirely within the scope of this series, but you should look it up.
The problem with this is that it would involve invading the English, American and Dutch colonies which the Japanese in some ways saw as a force to start the war with them, so basically to continue the war with the great power China they had to secure resources for it by starting the war with the great power America and this is where people see the flaw in this plan and wonder how they ever thought it could have worked, but the Japanese never really thought it would work, at least the way it resulted in the imperial conference of November 5, 1941, of which I have a link to the transcript in the description of all the big names from the Empire of Japan who are present discuss how a diplomatic option is not going to work but how risky the military option is .
They were fully aware of the power of the United States and then an attack on them causing an all out war would be Suicidal as most people see it today, but that was not actually the plan. The Japanese saw the United States as a pretty powerful country, but I guess lazy for lack of a better term, and I mean, it's easy to see why the war took place. This has been going on for several years, depending on when you start counting against many of his strong allies, and he had done little more than vocalize his position and send weapons.
The Japanese had no intention of entering into a protracted war, they even claim. They became convinced that a prolonged war with the United States would be a mistake and hoped, with one swift move, to take the territories that were holding out, as well as deal a quick blow to the Navy that would hopefully be bad enough to convince the United States to turn around and accept. the changes because the Japanese did not think they would have the stomach for a long fight with the territories taken in the Navy recovering from losses, even if the United States wanted to fight, it would take some time for them to return to the field.
Their fleet needs to be repaired first to give the smaller Japanese Navy a fighting chance. However, it was still a very big risk and the Japanese were aware of it. In fact, all the representatives present at the meeting talk about how things would have to go absolutely perfectly in their country. The prospect ends for this to be carried out, since the entire plan would put enormous pressure on the Japanese State. Suzuki said a sustained war was not an option. Kyah said it would only be possible with an increase in taxes in widespread plundering and exploitation of the territory. conquered territories Nagano saying that he wrote about the initial operations and if they were not successful a prolonged war could not be won in multiple statements by Sugiyama saying that it would be possible due to the poor quality of the troops in the areas to be attacked but stating once again that the war should be short, in addition to encouraging action to be taken as soon as possible, since the longer they wait, the more defenses can be prepared in the areas they planned to attack and, although they are very nervous about it, this is the plan that was with and December 7, 1941, a date that will live in infamy when the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan and unlike the rest of the battles in this series I am not going to talk . about this because it's been absolutely done to death, I think the motivation is why it happened, it's a little more interesting, but basically the Japanese chose the

best

scenario among several bad or impossible ones so as not to lose their sunk cost in China.
I have a better bad idea than this, this is the

best

bad idea we have, sir, to start the largest naval war that humanity has ever seen and which we will cover in future episodes before I go, although I want to clarify one thing that What we ended up with to cover here is often presented as the big bad America who forced Japan to go to war because they didn't want to trade with them and poor Japan was left with this one option that they didn't want to go with and although you can see that De Somehow, it wouldn't be correct unless Japan was conducting some kind of humanitarian mission during its conquest of China; in fact, they were doing much less than that on the USS.
The objection to their rather brutal conquest of the country is extremely justified and limiting their war potential was the best thing they could have done for Japanese territories that didn't much like being invaded.
