The 1935 act, and the Neutrality Act of 1936 and 1937 that followed, were designed to prevent a recurrence of the events that many Americans now believed had pressured the U.S. into WWI. The 1935 law established a mandatory arms embargo against both victim and aggressor in any military conflict and empowered the president to warn American citizens that they might travel on the ships of warring nations only at their own risk. Thus, isolationists believed, the “protection of neutral rights” could not again become an excuse for American intervention in war. The 1936 Neutrality Act renewed these provisions. And in 1937, with world conditions growing even more precarious, Congress passed a still more stringent measure.
He felt strongly about keeping good relations with other countries, but at the same time warned Americans of the danger of remaining isolated from a world that was slowly being taken over by dictators in Germany, Italy, and Japan. He was in turn dominated by an isolationists Congress that felt that U.S involvement in World War I was a big mistake and were determined to prevent the United States from being drawn into another European war. When World War II broke out in Europe in 1939, Roosevelt called Congress into special session to revise neutrality acts to permit allies to buy American arms on a “cash-and-carry” basis. But Great Britain quickly became
Japan acted as an aggressor nation in Document A, it shows Japan disregarding the International treaty agreements, which forced America to then go on its own and begin isolation. The Japanese played an important role in changing our American foreign policy because they ignored and blasted away every treaty we had set up with them. The United Stated government ended up taking action against the concerns of aggression. On August 31, 1935, the Neutrality act in Document C was issued. This act stated that if the president declared a foreign nation to be at war, all forms of trade
FDR took a different approach with Japan, he viewed the German threat more prevalent than the Japanese. He strategy was to strangle the island into submission through an economic war. Japan was completely dependent on imports and raw materials from other countries, mainly the US to keep the production of wartime materials. In 1938, Roosevelt issued an embargo against Japan, restricting the trade of steel and oil in hopes to bring Japanese expansion to a halt. With only a six month supply of oil in reserve Japan was forced to make a quick decision that would have an enormous impact on world events.
From this data, some have concluded[weasel words] that the US entered the war because it was in American commercial interest for the United Kingdom not to lose. During the 1920s and 1930s, dozens of books and articles appeared which argued that arms manufacturers had tricked the United States into entering World War I.  In 1934, Senator Gerald P. Nye of North Dakota held hearings to investigate the country's involvement in World War I. The Nye Committee documented the huge profits that arms factories had made during the war, documenting a possible connection between these businesses' interests and the United States' decision to go to war. 1920's Japanese emerged as an empires.
Why We Fight On December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked upon American naval forces and air defenses at Pearl Harbor. This event gave Franklin Roosevelt the justification he needed to enter the United States in World War II. Other than that there were additional motivations for America’s entrance into the war. In 1931 Japanese invaded Manchuria. American had good relations with China so they told Japan if they don’t leave they will stop trading oil with them.
On August 31, Roosevelt signed the neutrality act into law. In 1936 the law was renewed, and in 1937 a "comprehensive and permanent" neutrality act was passed. Another reason was because Roosevelt said "We shun political commitments which might entangle us In foreign wars...If we face the choice of profits or peace-this nation must answer, the nation will answer 'we choose peace' ",in which they did. In 1939 a poll that had been taken showed that ninety-four per cent of the citizens did not want the United States to enter the war. Americans were still recuperating from the devastating effects of WWI.
Fascist ideology can be seen as a key feature to the outbreak of world war two at the end of the 1930s however fascist foreign policy was developed within Germany and Italy for other reasons. Germany and Italy were both defeated during world war one and were not invited into the league of nations also both countries suffered from the treaty of Versailles and wanted revenge and to re look the points of the treaty. Germany felt humiliated by the terms of the treaty her once great and powerful military was now minimum and she could not defend her borders if invaded. Italy felt betrayed by the allied forces who had promised her lands in the Adriatic for her support within the war. When Hitler came to power within Germany in the 1930s he aimed to bring all German speaking people under one great empire and that Germans were the master race who were superior to Jews and Slavs this showed the aggressive nature of Germans foreign policy because for Hitler to bring all German speaking people into one great empire it would mean having to invade territory she had lost from ww1.
But throughout the 1930s towards WW2, the League of Nations is shown to be very weak; hence it couldn’t prevent the Abyssinia Crisis. In 1934 Mussolini attempted a coup with Austrian Nazis to overthrow President Dollfuss, however the plan failed and Dollfuss was murdered. At this point France and Italy formed an alliance which would guarantee Austria’s sovereignty. Two months later Mussolini learned of Germany’s rearmament program and began to grow suspicion of Hitler. During April 1915, the “Stresa Front” took place, which consisted of Britain, France and Italy; in which all three nations Criticised Hitler’s gamble in Austria and was reminded that his aggressive actions had breached the spirit of the Locarno Conference.
The principal itself that the United Nation, the one and only organization that protects human rights and stands against threats to rights of all people, refused the invasion of Iraq should give enough reasons to not support the placement of war. An invasion is not a conflict where two countries fight one another for the foal of obtaining a right for defense or threats. An invasion, such as this one, is when one country tries to take control of another for the simple fact of intruding and taking power. This is achieved with violence; therefore Bush’s reason for suspecting, with no evidence, Saddam to have connections with aiding terrorism didn’t have to lead to an invasion. The core problem was Saddam, not Iraq and its people.
