Japan, in the form of a wasp, is attacking China while the U.S. attempts to stop the attack with the Nine Power Pact. This is a test of the Pact's efficiency. However, "[t]he Nine-Power Treaty lacked any enforcement regulations, and [for instance] when violated by Japan during its invasion of Manchuriain 1931 and creation of Manchukuo, the United States could do little more than issue protests and impose economic sanctions."
