Are you referring to the fact that the US cut off the supply of oil to Japan because they were genociding China out the ass?

Yes that's totally American warmongering right there.

depending on how you mean it...

except of becoming more powerfull there was no reason for the usa to step into the war. a lot of actions were taken by the usa to make sure the escalation kept going on and on, hoping that there would be something done to give the usa a reason to step into the war

what about the fact that the US got war declared on them first? Do you think that played a role?

Except for the fact that America was explicitly not neutral at any time during the war. We were supplying BOTH sides of the war, and giving heavily to the allies. The Japanese told us that if we didn't stop then we were going to be attacked. And then they fucking attacked us, big shocker. Obviously it was not really chill what happened to Pearl Harbor, but that's kind of how war works. I think we more than payed tojo back.

Nobody said we were neutral. We had made promises to our allies and we upheld them by giving them supplies. The Axis were the aggressors and we had no such promises, so we didn't supply them. So they blew up our ships, but we still said "this isn't our fight, we just want to keep our promises". So they declared war on us, and we still said "staying out of this beyond supplies." So then they came to our home and blew up our favorite toys and killed many people. And then we (with much help from allies and an equal effort from Russia) decided to curb stomp the Axis. We acted in self-defense alone.

So no, we weren't neutral - but we never claimed to be. But we were a peaceful entity, we understood when they destroyed our supply lines, and then they attacked our homeland.

The argument I am trying to make is that when two parties are at war, if you choose to support one and not the other, then you are involved and taking a side. If you are then told by the other side hey, if you don't cut that out, we will consider you an enemy, and then you continue doing what you were doing, you're bringing yourself into the war. Especially when they say hey, I'm going to fucking attack you if you don't stop. You can't pretend to be innocent at that point. It's not like I'm trying to say that Japan was in the right. But you can't say that the attack on Pearl Harbor was unprecedented.

#72 - Fgner (11/29/2016) [-]
That's not how this works. Just because they don't like it doesn't mean we have to stop and it doesn't give them the right to attack us. If, say, China told us today to "stop trading with Japan or we'll go to war with you", we aren't going to stop trading with Japan because the big bully says to. At no point is it acceptable to go to war with a peaceful country - that makes you the bad guy. Regardless if they're doing something you don't like, regardless if they're trading with your enemy - they are choosing peace with you and that's what matters.

Now of course this gives a clear strategic reason to attack, especially if you're losing, but it still doesn't justify the act. There's a clear difference between the two.

No you're right, that wasn't what I was trying to say. But we knew that that was going to be the outcome, just like Britain knew what they were doing when they told Germany to step off of Poland. The attack on Pearl Harbor wasn't justified, but it wasn't unprecedented.
#51 - lostabyss (11/29/2016) [-]
to be fair tho, we were HEAVILY supplying britain with supplies. the country that declared war on germany first...the country that bombed civilians first and denied talks for peace what three times?

gee, it's almost like provoking a warmongering colonial empire, by embargoing them, is going to drive them into a corner and make them attack you to get their resources back.
User avatar
#59 - Dakafal (11/29/2016) [-]
Embargoing Japan and then supplying the other side is not being neutral at all. Japan even told us they would attack if we didn't stop. I think overall it was good that America was dragged into it obviously, but to pretend that America was innocent and that Japans attack was totally unprecedented is so naive it's hilarious.

Don't see Russia starting ww3 and we are doing that to them now.

Give it 10 more years. If I recall correctly WWII also partly happened because Germany's economy was left in shambles after WWI.

Should I have given him the lawnmower?

No, I should push him back inside his shitty little house and burn it to the ground with him in it and help his wife rebuild the house so she can start her now successful business

No, I think something kinda big happened. It might be related to the kidnapping that OP referred to.

If she contests the election, she'll look pretty foolish considering how much she pushed the "Contesting elections is a threat to democracy" meme. Not to mention how it might conclusively expose all of the illegal voting the dems orchestrated.

because of their actual population. when a californian goes to texas they shouldnt have to worry about whether or not their marriage is recognized.

none of what youre saying is even a proof Pro-electoral college because the electoral college does allow for big states to overpower smaller we just happen to currently have a split but it doesnt have to be that way.

we can agree or disagee about whether or not smaller states need more power but he electoral college as we know it doesnt do anything to ensure that except by happenstance
