Look at what went on.
Japan wanted to expand their influence. Roosevelt cut off supplying oil to Japan. Japan needed oil to support their expansionism.
They needed coal and iron ore. Not enough readily available without conquering others.
The military dominated the emperor and convinced him that war was the only way.
After the war, we occupied Japan. For them it was (and is still) a national shame. Part of the war settlement terms were (and still are): we guaranteed them a supply of oil.
I'm sure that there are many other issues that were a part of the world order at the time, just as there are today that our politicians play loose with.
