After Pearl Harbor Japan was a country that came from being nothing to something over the decades and is now an ally with the United States. There was a time when United States and Japan weren’t allies. It happened during WWII when Japan attacks Pearl Harbor. This is when all of United States changes from being neutral during the war to getting involved. United States response to the attack helped a lot from evolving its military and to improving their economy but it also impacted some citizens in a negative way. Japan attacking Pearl Harbor drew United States into WWII which they tried to stay away from but this helped them mature as an army and evolvement of new technology. During the war, the United States discovered the nuke that was later on banned right after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki because of the destruction and horrific it was. The bombing killed so many soldiers and civilians outright, and at least as many died of sickness and injuries during the next five years. The war also improved their Navy such as developing Navy fleet carriers that made a huge difference so that that the war wouldn’t take place on U.S. soil. The aircrafts they had on the carriers were also a symbol of United Sates power and later on a force to be reckoned with. The only problem during the war was that the Japanese had different values and honor of dying. For instant they had kamikazes that pretty much had little of regard for life and life of their own. They were the Japanese Navy and what they pretty much did is crash into U.S. warships purposely. Generally, Kamikaze pilots were university students motivated by obligation, and loyalty to family and country. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor the economy was still at a high. Being neutral during WWII made it easy for the U.S. to gain an economic boost because they were making money off war materials; which got them out of the depression. Socially it affected the US considerably, with so many men joining the armed forces there were greater opportunities for women and blacks in industry. They took the places of those who went to fight, whether it was in factories, offices or in agriculture, and this helped break down many social barriers and things like Civil Rights legislation after the war. The wealth created also helped the US considerably when peace came. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor the U.S. was insecure with Japanese American community. They had no idea who to trust or who to consider an ally or foe. During World War II, the United States government relocated more than 110,000 Japanese Americans (both citizens and resident aliens) and held them in Assembly Centers and Relocation Centers, often called
