Another small but important diplomatic coup had been scored by the Great White Fleet. The fleets Japan visit had the desired result: it generated good will between both countries and eased tensions that might otherwise have led to open conflict
Iwo Jima was considered strategically important since it provided an air base for Japanese fighter planes to intercept long-range B-29 Superfortress bombers. In addition, it was used by the Japanese to stage nuisance air attacks on the Mariana Islands from November 1944 to January 1945.

The rate for motor vehicle theft in 2000 was 2.3 for Pakistan, compared with 44.28 for Japan and 414.17 for USA. The rate for all index offenses combined was 48.07 for Pakistan, compared with 1709.88 for Japan and 4123.97 for USA.Answer:I find that Interpol and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime keep crime statistics by type of crime. A comparison of overall crime rates between Pakistan and the US isnt really possible due to the fact that acts considered a crime in one country may not be considered a crime in the other. Reporting of crimes, investigation of crimes, and processing crimes through each justice system is also not comparable. Any numbers reported may have been compiled from far different sources or based on different criteria. Only generalities can be compared between these two countries.
In 1931, the Japanese Kwangtung Army attacked Chinese troops in Manchuria in an event commonly known as the Manchurian Incident. Essentially, this was an attempt by the Japanese Empire to gain control over the whole province, in order to eventually encompass all of East Asia. This proved to be one of the causes of World War II. Japan modernized between 1868 and World War One. It emerged as a modern industrial economy with giant companies - zaibatsus - that assumed great importance as trading enterprises. Japans expansion was marked by wars of expansion - defeats China over Korea in 1894-5 and Russia over Manchuria in 1904-5. The latter war sees the Japanese navy sink Russias at the Battle of Tsushima in 1905. The Japanese navy had led Japan into the ranks of modern industrialized powers. In World War One Japan acquired German islands north of the Equator. In the Depression Years, Japan moves to acquire an Empire - The East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. This was due largely to the break-up of the world into trade blocs with Japan frozen out of many markets. The 1929 Depression hit Japan hard. The civilian government had no solutions to the problems presented by the worldwide depression and the civilian government looked weak. The unemployed of Japan looked to the strength of the army to assist their plight rather than to weak politicians. The voice of senior army generals were heard and they argued campaign to win new colonies abroad so that the industries there could be exploited for Japan. Japan invaded Manchuria in 1931, which caused many blames by the League of Nations. By 1931, Japan had invested vast sums of money into the economy of Manchuria, which was effectively controlled by the South Manchuria Railway Company. In 1937 Japan invaded China and, after the collapse of France, moved to acquire bases in French Indo-China- this led by degrees to the war in the Pacific, especially after the US oil embargo in July 1941. Japan struck at US and UK bases in Dec.1941. The most obvious target was a full-scale invasion of Manchuria. The Manchurian Incident marked a significant change in Japans foreign policy, especially towards its colony of Korea. The Japanese wanted to compete in a geopolitical struggle for domination with the United States, the Soviet Union, and many of European countries that had ambitions to hold their colonies in Asia. The invasion of Manchuria and the war mobilization efforts attempted to create a strong empire, which could eventual compete with these world powers. The Japanese government set up a puppet state of Manchukuo after they took over Manchuria. Manchuria was also taken in an effort to curb the advance of Chinese nationalist forces, which were threatening Japanese interests on the Asian continent. Manchuria was also used for their vast Natural Resources and raw materials, which would help further the economic goals of Japan. The war effort in Korea and China included the mobilization of labor, in which the workers could be moved to various parts of the Japanese Empire, all to insure production for the war effort. Koreans worked in factories and mines in Manchuria, northern Korea and Japan. About 4,000,000 Koreans and Chinese were displaced from their homes and shipped to these factories so that they would be productive in Japans war efforts. The war mobilization scattered Koreans and Chinese, as manpower, all over East Asia, in an effort to maximize production for the mother country.
Well, Japan needed resources and we wouldnt really trade oil with them, Japanese didnt want US to join the war so they felt if they attacked then we wouldnt really fight back. Also, the Japanese felt they could beat the US. But you have to remember, there was a depression world wide and Japan needed their resources.
