JAPAN’S MASTER PLAN FOR VICTORY:
WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN

Series No.2, Chapter 1: Did Japan Wage a War of Aggression?
July 31, 2019
Was the Japanese strike on Pearl Harbor a “sneak” attack? Was Japan an “aggressor” in World War II?
These are weighty questions. However, my intent in writing this book was not to address them in great detail, as anyone who has read the Foreword can see.
Still, I see no reason to go to great lengths to avoid any mention of these topics. I will briefly describe my thoughts on these matters.
The followings are the main points I wrote in this Chapter concerning these matters:
1) The panic of 1929 and the Smoot-Hawley Tariff as foundations for WW II,
2) Proliferation of economic blocks leads to fragmentation of the world’s markets,
3) The Stimson Doctrine,
4) The Comintern embraces revolutionary defeatism and promotes war under an anti-war slogan,
5) Unilateral abrogation of the Japan-US treaty by America (announced July 1939),
6) Economic blockade are acts of war,
7) MacArthur’s testimony before the US Senate in 1951,
8) Declaration of war is not mandatory and the Pearl Harbor strike was not a “sneak” attack,
9) Roosevelt approves a plan for the bombing of Japan in July 1941,
10) The conclusion reached by the 31st President of the US, Herbert Hoover:
The whole Japanese war was a madman’s desire to get into war. By madman, Hoover meant Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The major reason for US-Japan conflict was the Second Sino-Japanese War. But it is a great task to thoroughly analyze this war in detail here, so readers are recommended to read my other book, Why Apologize to China, the Instigator of the Second Sino-Japanese War? http://www.sdh-fact.com/CL/How-China-Started-the-Second-SinoJapanese-War-Whole.pdf
