How Would One Discuss This Topic:
Japan controlled neighbors because it could. Japan also took over Korea and China because it needed land and resources. Japan is an island country, therefore, it needed a dependable source of raw materials. This is usually true of imperialist countries: they want raw materials from their colonies.

SORRY THIS IS THE TOPIC I DO NOT UNDERSTAND (THE FIRST POST IS MY ANSWER:
Under what circumstances (if any) should one country in a region have the right to control other nations in the region? (Consider the principal reasons for Japanese imperialism)’

Suppose Canada or Mexico wanted to control the United States. Under what circumstances would you agree to being taken over by either of these countries?
In your answer, you said that Japan NEEDED land and resources. It WANTED them, but you can't say it NEEDED them. If I steal your ipod or other gadget, would you feel ok if I told you I needed it?
