What Japan did or did not do with China was NONE of the our business.  We had no treaty with China. We had no duty to protect China.  We were a "potential ally" only.  The US had the right to sell whatever they wanted or not to whoever, but did not have the right to freeze japanese assets so they couldn't buy it elsewhere if they could find it. But convincing the dutch east indies to also embargo Japan was the final stick int he japanese eye. Again, none of our business.  sc
