World War I proved more horrifying than anyone could have imagined, and it demonstrated the colossal destructive power available to industrialized states.

[152] The American counter-proposal of 26 November required that Japan evacuate all of China without conditions and conclude non-aggression pacts with all Pacific powers. [154] That meant Japan was essentially forced to choose between abandoning its ambitions in China, or seizing the natural resources it needed in the Dutch East Indies by force; [155] the Japanese military did not consider the former an option, and many officers considered the oil embargo an unspoken declaration of war.

[157] To prevent American intervention while securing the perimeter it was further planned to neutralise the United States Pacific Fleet and the American military presence in the Philippines from the outset. [158] On 7 December (8 December in Asian time zones), 1941, Japan attacked British and American holdings with near-simultaneous offensives against Southeast Asia and the Central Pacific. [159] These included an attack on the American fleet at Pearl Harbor, the Philippines, landings in Thailand and Malaya [159] and the battle of Hong Kong Over the Top With the Third Australian Division.
