Sanctions Against Japan?

Very few people realize that the US enforced sanctions against Japan (1939-1941) led to the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

And history is repeating itself with Russia today.

Wait! What?

Stay with me here.

After a decade of economic devastation, FDR needed a way to excuse/overcome the Great Depression.

And thanks to the CoronaHoax, our world economy is looking familiar to those days.

Ironically (or NOT) the Neocons in DC today are using a clever strategy.

And they’re similar to what the Neocons during FDR’s administration used against Japan.

And they eventually led to World War II.

They circumvented Congress with a series of escalating highly restrictive trade restrictions imposed on Japan.

The idea was to target Japan and restrict the exportation of material to Japan.

By circumventing Congress, the Neocons were able to isolate Japan without engaging in war.

Only Congress can declare.


More Sanctions Against Japan

At that time, Japan imported about 74% of its scrap iron from the US and over 90% of its copper.

On July 26, 1941, the US seized all Japanese assets in the United States.

This was in retaliation for the Japanese occupation of French Indo-China.

(Note the similarities that the O’Biden administration has done today with Russia’s reserves?)

Only a few weeks later, the US hit Japan with an oil embargo and gasoline exports to Japan.

Unfortunately for Japan 80% of their energy supply came from the USA.

And – what’s rarely ever mentioned – the US was proposing intervening to prevent Japan from getting oil from other sources.

As a result, the Japanese had to then seize Southeast Asia for resources which (ironically or NOT) expanded the war.

So, in order to secure themselves in the Pacific, they attacked Pearl Harbor with no intention of actually invading the United States.

They – like most other nations – believed that every American owned a gun.

Roll the clock forward to March 2022 and see how the Neocons/Psychopaths are repeating history.

Sad to say that hatred is blind to history.

And the Neocons – who are filled with hatred against everything/anything Russian – are doomed to repeat the mistakes of history.

Don’t be one of them.

Instead, learn how to prosper AND thrive in Turbulent Times every month in our “…In Plain Newsletter” (HERE).

And share this with a friend…especially if they think they know the history behind Pearl Harbor.

They’ll thank YOU later.
