+1 oldcat, just as Italy and Thailand also declared war on the United States without - erm, so far as I can tell - having concrete plans to bring the United States to her knees

comment How to explain the Khalkhin Gol outcome in view of Soviet weakness and Japanese strength at that time?
@Semaphore wikipedia's page for Operation Barbarossa suggests the USSR had something like three times as many planes as the Germans, and three times as many tanks, and yet they were crushed. "had more tanks and planes" hardly seems a sufficient explanation, on its own, for Khalkhin Gol. But your comment about Japan's lack of commitment to the battle and questionable authorisation is an interesting point.
