Japan bombed Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941. 1.Explain the reasons for U.S. neutrality during the 1920s and 1930s.

The Untied States had always been Isolationist. They attempted to refrain from foreign matters. Most likely because we had internal issues. The United States ended up helping England and the Allied because they were are democratic. The Axis forces are more authoritarian. The United States was compelled to assist democratic states because they are be stronger allies and not as violent.

2. In your opinion, what was the point at which U.S. actions were no longer neutral? Explain your reasoning with supporting details from the lesson. I think the Unites States being strictly an Isolationist is completely neutral. It can be when companies such as Ford and others began doing business with Germany. It can also be when the 'Lend-Lease' began.

3. Criticize or defend each of the U.S. actions surrounding World War II that are listed below. Justify your opinion with supporting details from the lesson.
