7 December 1941

What a great Pearl Harbor page! That's definitely a keeper.

In a manager's meeting yesterday, as we discussed upcoming events on the calendar, I remarked that "tomorrow is slap a Jap day". The response I got from everyone was blank, questioning stares. My immediate thought was that's it took 69 years to forget Pearl Harbor - a lot less to forget 9/11.

The day that F. D. Roosevelt sacrificed the first 2000+ of the more than 400,000 that eventually died to preserve the Rooseveltian lies.

There have been only two Just Wars in our history, sadly, World War Two wasn't one of them. I do not say that easily, both of my parents were combat veterans of that war.

Least we forget, Japan had no choice but to attack Pearl Harbor after Roosevelt placed a oil embargo upon them look it up @ wikipiedia,Sent Decommissioned Air-Force Pilots to China(Flying Tigers)and if I remember correctly sent Marine Advisers to the Philippines.So in effect Pearl Harbor was the culmination of the Roosevelt's Plot to draw the U.S.A into WWII.

Could not trust our own Government then anymore than now, It's just that we are finnally starting to wake up.

Still we lost too many good men and women(and I do Remember and Honor them today)in that attack and in the War that only God knows if we Needed to be in anyway.

Remember that documents, accessible to anyone, show Roosevelt's intention to get Japan to throw the first punch, and that the Dutch and Americans had broken the Japanese code and were intercepting everything. They knew.

I personally own a letter from a father to his paratrooper son, dated December 8th, saying, "We knew the Japanese were going to attack: it was only a matter of time." It was no surprise.

I can't look at that picture without getting chills. I did a lot of research on the destruction of the Arizona in preparation of building a model of her as she sat smoking on 10 Dec. It was worse than the pics and videos show. Damn.

When I visited a few years back, I found a group of kids asking questions about this and that feature of the wreck. I pointed out the galley floor, a gun tub, barbette, and other things. They had no idea..... My work went to a good end in helping the kids see what was left, and imagine what was there.

A man can still cry....

Just remember, according to Leftists, the US started the war with Japan because the USS Ward fired on the kaiten mini-sub *before* the already-launched air raid struck.

Errors and incompetence, but I don't believe we were to blame for the attack. Japan had massive imperialistic intentions, and an economy that required 5 tons of raw materials for every ton of finished product - all to grow and feed it people..... kinda like China today. We were at odds on many fronts, and they new they were pushing things.

We blocked access to iron, nickel, oil and other raw materials. So what? I believe it was justified, considering the crap they were pulling in Manchuria. The man they picked to command the attack also said they didn't stand a chance after one year, and they went ahead anyway.

It was their own damned fault. Our pressure was economic. Theirs was military.

...and the got their asses kicked. To damned bad.
