Gekokujo was just one of the influences driving the war, not the only one. Ultimately, the decision to go to war was made by senior members of the government and the armed forces, not junior ones.

Against the Allies, yes, but the Manchurian Army decided to go to war without government authorization, and the Marco Polo Bridge incident got out of hand because hotheads were hotheads. After that it was nothing but a train wreck.
