US recreating circumstances that led to Pearl Harbor

It was unwise of the Japanese to attack the US, but the US had pushed and pushed with sanctions on Japan until Japan felt it was backed into a corner and was forced to react.

That reaction was Pearl Harbor. Japan was made out to be the aggressor and the war was on.

The situation currently evolving with Iran has surpassed the usual ‘saber-rattling’ that goes on. Iran has threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, and has threatened to act should any US warships return to the Persian Gulf.

Why?

Because sanctions are an act of war, and when you back a nation into a corner they react. What will Iran’s reaction be?
