      During the previous month before the start of hostilities, a part of the US Asiatic Fleethad been sent to the southern Philippines. By this time, however, the Japanese had successfully detached Manchuria from the rest of China, creating the puppet state of Manchukuo under the deposed Qing emperor Pu Yi. Dissent was controlled by the usage of political and press repressionwith the Peace Preservation Law permitting police to restrict freedom of expression and freedom to assemble. These territories were part of Japan's vital supply route for men and materials to and from the Chinese mainland, and the Japanese were worried that German influence was thus affecting their interests in south east Asia. Opposition to war in the US vanished after the attack. Life for Hirohito After the War A postwar constitution preserved the monarchy but defined the emperor as a mere symbol of the state.

      Schools and universities forbade speaking Korean and emphasized manual labor and loyalty to the Emperor. This allowed the Soviets to transfer Siberia divisions west that played a key role in the defense of Moscow. To defuse the threat of war with Russia, on 13 Aprildiscretion proved the better part of valour, and Japan signed a neutrality pact with the Soviets. And the Japanese were able to orgnize local military formations Burma, India, and Indonesia to fight the Allies. Vice Admiral Chuichi Nagumo was put in a difficult tactical situation in which he had to counter continuous American air attacks and prepare to recover his Midway strike planes, while deciding whether to mount an immediate strike on the American carrier or wait to prepare a proper attack.

      It is evident that the Japanese have had considerable political and diplomatic experience. Within months the Japanese had seized Shanghai and reached the Chinese capital at Naking and conducted one of the most apauling attrocities of modern times, known as the Rape of Nanking. The Japanese found their army bogged down in unwinnable campaigns in China and Burma and morooned on isolated Pacific islands that they could no longer supply or even defend. The next prime minister was shot and mortally wounded, and in yet another prime minister was assassinated by naval officers upset about a treaty limiting the number of Japanese warships. Throughout the occupation, protest movements pushed for Korean independence. In other words, to call on Asian countries to shun looking at Japan as an aggressor with criminal intent to plunder and loot other Asian countries a line pushed by massive western propaganda but to look at Japan as the real spark that ignited the fight all over Asia for independence from western domination.
