The US have a long history of imperialism in the Asia-Pacific region.


I remember watching something about the day when Americans went to Japan to mislead them in order to gain a foothold in asia...

Do you know why? I'm guessing that they might have easier regulations for inspection or something of that nature

No, they didn't... And Hitler didn't really want them to - he wanted Russia to remain within a pure German sphere of influence... Also, the whole axis Berlin-Tokyo was not as close and strong as many believe...

Not serious historians though... Hitler outlined his whole campaign in "Mein Kampf" years earlier... Stalin was an imperialist... Chances are he was thinking about increasing influence... But it's at least doubtful that he wanted to attack Europe... And definitely Hitler didn't know about that... Hitler was not defending anything - he wanted to attack...

Well, the problem with the embargo for Japan was the occupation of the former Franch colonies though... That was a clear provocation...
And while I agree, that the Americans probably knew that the Japanese would try to launch a strike and maybe even (this is highly conspirative though) wanted Pearl Harbor to happen (after all, it fonally made way to participate actively in the war...) - it was not provoked by the Americans by any sort of military act...

Well this part is definitely true, since Berlin was originally allies with Nanjing.

No clue tbh. I checked and we're the 6th largest in the world and largest in Europe though.

I don't know what you mean by "not serious historians", the fact is that Stalin occupied and annexed several countries effectively ceded to it by Nazi Germany in the German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact. These included Eastern Poland, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, part of eastern Finland and eastern Romania. And while most historians agree that the USSR made extensive preparations for an eventual war and exploited the military conflict in Europe to their advantage, the assertions that Stalin planned to attack Nazi Germany in the summer of 1941, and that Operation Barbarossa was a preemptive strike by Hitler, are generally discounted only by Western researchers with few exceptions, but not by russian historians who have access to declassified archive materials supporting this thesis.

That's what I said, the Western powers had the right to colonize and annex countries, but not the Japanese.

So many factors could be playing a role, I have feeling it may be relegations but also probably because of Malta's position in the sea. I know that Spain has a large port and the Suez Canal is near

Initially, the Russian army was obviously distinctly inferior to the Germans in both combat training and equipment... That's what made the first success of the Wehrmacht even possible... And Hiter was in a rush to start his operation Barbarossa, because he was well aware of this - Stalin must've been too...

But that was not the problem... Japan was expanding WAYY before... The problem was that they took it from a then defenseless France... That's why they took actions...

Well, they - and say what you will, ALL of us - won far more than what they lost... Call it an investment... I know it's morbid...
