This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    We went to war with Japan. Japan was allied with Germany as a result we were at war with both.

    "Pearl Harbor" - great movie, but there seems to be no counterpart for Germany at the same time(1940-41). And the Pearl Harbor infamy over-shadowed European events.

    That's hardly automatic just beause of an alliance.

    The USSR did not fight Japan until the very end, and then only to grab some land.

    Yes the US declared war on both nations the vote in the Senate was 88-0 and House 393-0 for war with Germany. In regards to Italy the vote was Senate: 90-0 House: 399-0. Thus, by act of Congress and the President, war was formally declared on both nations by the US.

    I know it's absolutely irrelevant, but, as a point of historical interest, I was under the impression that the first female senator, whose name escapes me presently, voted against both the First AND Second World Wars?

    According to the great historian John "Bluto" Blutarsky, "It wasn't over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor."

    World War I suggests that alliances and agreements very much make war automatic. The entire European landscape dove right in and it was all in accordance to former agreements. It was rediculous. Eventually, with the core countries making a mess, other European countries got sucked in and then us in 1917.

    World War II was showed more of a reluctance.

    A lot more than just one senator was against going to War in Europe both times. In the end, your people proved incapable of dealing with your own mess, which sucked us in just to protect our own interests.

    What was because Japan and the USSR signed a non-aggression treaty which the Soviets violated to get that land grab (not that they got very much land out of it in the end)
