they push you and push you, and then when you push back, it's suddenly "a surprise attack". Granted, it was a surprise attack, but it should not have come as such.
Bitch, please. Tell us all about the reasons the US had sanctions. And I love your complete justification for Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. The big bad bullies in 'murica simply forced them to. We essentially attacked ourselves.
Sigh.. it's not quite that simple. I do agree that Japan was waging a war on China that was brutal and the sanctions imposed clearly were meant to curb japanese agresssion. But they also put Japan's back to the wall, effectively saying "fight, or surrender" and the Japanese just weren't that good on surrender. The diplomatic core should have made that point so clear that Pearl Harbor would not have come as a surprise.
And yes, sometimes America tends to be a bully whose own dogs bite him back. Remember those guys called the Taliban? Or Saddam Hussein? Remember who armed and supported those people? Yep, America.
