The Japanese supported coup in Peru was one act too many. The United States has declared war on Japan.
The United States Navy immediately acted to protect the coasts of the United States by attacking Japanese submarines in American waters. We sank 33SS3, but suffered losses of 2SS3 ourselves. We attacked Japanese forces in Venezuela and launched an air attack on Hainan. We gave and took losses in these attacks. The American armed forces will attempt to drive the Japanese out of the western hemisphere.
We are currently at war with Germany, Japan and the Soviet Union, but we hope to make peace with Germany and the USSR soon.
The American people are fully in support of her troops.
The people of Peru had freely made their choice based on the friendliest nation to them.
A war of aggression started by the USA ? A surprise attack on a poor South American country of Venezuela ? Really ? Shameful. Perhaps the USA should have spent more time working with countries in South America instead of starting wars in Scandinavia !
Well, FWIW, I've found South America to be full of nothing, and not worth starting a war over.
History began July 4th, 1776. Anything before that was a mistake.
