“This memo outlined eight different steps the
United States could do that he predicted would
lead to an attack by Japan
on the United States.
The day after this memo was giving to Franklin D. Roosevelt, he began to
implement these steps. By the time that Japan
finally attacked the United States
at Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941, all eight
steps had occurred (Willy 1). The eight steps consisted of two main subject
areas; the first being a sign of United States military preparedness and threat
of attack, the second being a forceful control on Japans trade and economy. The
main subject area of the eight-action memo was the sign of United States
military preparedness and threat of attack. McCollum called for the United States to make arrangements with both Britain (Action A) and Holland
(Action B), for the use of military facilities and acquisition of supplies in
both Singapore and Indonesia.
He also suggested for the deployment of a division of long-range heavy cruisers (Action D) and two divisions of submarines (Action E) to the Orient. The last key factor McCollum called for was to keep the United States Fleet in the vicinity of the
(Action F). Roosevelt personally took charge
of Action’s D and E; these actions were called “pop up” cruises. Roosevelt had this to say about the cruises, “’I just
want them to keep popping up here and there and keep the Japs guessing
(Stinnett 9).’” With the fleet located around Hawaii
and particularly in Pearl Harbor a
double-sided sword was created; it allowed for quicker deployment times into
South Pacific Water, but more importantly it lacked many fundamental military
needs, and was vulnerable due to its geographic location. To understand the
true vulnerability of Pearl Harbor one must look at Oahu, the
that the military base is located. The North part of the island is all
mountains, these mountains hinder the vision of military look out points,
making an attack from the North virtually a surprise until the sound of fighter
planes are over head. Hawaiian Island
There were many key military needs that were missing from Pearl Harbor, and they were; a lack of training facilities, lack of large-scale ammunition and fuel supplies, lack of support craft such as tugs and repair ships, and a lack of overhaul facilities such as dry-docking and machine shops.
Fleet - Admiral James
O. Richardson, was outraged when he was told by President Roosevelt of his
plans on keeping the fleet in Hawaiian Waters. Commander in Chief, United States Richardson
knew of the problems and vulnerability of Pearl Harbor,
the safety of his men and warships was paramount. In a luncheon with Roosevelt,
confronted the President, and by doing so ended his military career. Four
months later Richardson
was removed as commander-in-chief, and replaced by Rear Admiral Husband Kimmel
Kimmel by many top Naval personal was looked down upon on, for taking orders from
Roosevelt and not
considering the immediate dangers he was putting the fleet in.
The second part of McCollum’s eight-action memo was a forceful control on Japans trade and economy. He insisted that the Dutch refuse to grant Japanese demands for oil (Action G), and a complete embargo of all trade with
Japan (Action H),
by the United States.
This embargo closely represented a similar embargo that was being imposed by
the British Empire. McCollum also knew that if
Japan controlled the
Pacific, it would put a strain on America’s resources for copper,
rubber, tin, and other valuable goods. These imports from the Pacific were all
essential to America’s
Economy, and to protect these trading routes McCollum insisted for all possible
aid to be given to the Chinese government of Chiang Kai-shek (Action C).”
