militarists—believing that spending on armaments would lift Japan out of the
worldwide depression–wanted to build airplanes, but they didn’t have
the fuel deposits to get them off the ground. 

the country needed to build an offensive war machine, which would be steel,
oil, coal, rubber–the
same resources that fueled America’s economic growth at the beginning of the 20th century–needed to be

building up of the forces of the Axis powers, and the eventual unleashing of
their war machines upon the world, was supported with
the ores and natural resources
from China and other regions for a decade prior before the United States got
involved militarily.

we are going to discuss World War II and American
culture.  How did the war impact people’s
lives?  How did American culture change
