The attack by Japan was "unprovoked" and "dastardly," to use President Roosevelt's words.  The BBC broadcast parts of the President's December 8th speech around the world.  In it he declared that a "state of war" existed between America and Japan.

On the same day, Winston Churchill commented on Japan's actions against the United States and how Britain would respond to the aggression.  This is a clip from that broadcast.
