The attack on Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor attack

You can listen to President Roosevelt’s “day of infamy” speech here: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/12/07/watch-fdr-s-day-of-infamy-speech.html

I was an 8 year old child when this happened. I recall going to school, the morning after the attack, and hearing that “Pearl Harbor was attacked.” I assumed that Pearl Harbor was a woman who had been attacked. People in America were saying, jokingly, that “She was probably asking for it.”

  1. I ain’t gonna debate who should’ve sided with who. This day we lost a lot of good men. Not to mention the civies that the nips murdered. One nip was saying how “savage” we are after the attack on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Hey. They drew first blood. They only got themselves to blame. Remember all our fallen men at Pearl.

  2. The Japanese were allied with Germany so it was all planned out.
    This was the only way for the US to get into the war with Germany which Britain really needed to survive.
    FDR knew that Japan was going to hit Pearl Harbor, they heard them coming.
    Without the US getting into the European war Britain would of lost easily and Hitler would of been boss man of Europe.
    To show his compassion, Hitler let the British retreat from Dunkirk, Hitler could of destroyed them then and there.
    On a side note…Some think Hitler missed the opportunity at Dunkirk, but in reality Hitler let them escape.
    What a bad man Hitler was…..NOT!
    As Churchill (so they say said) We butchered the wrong Pig, referring to siding with Stalin.
    Looking back it was a big mistake to stop Hitler he was the only person that knew the dangers of Communism
    which they (allies) soon found out later.

    Good info about Hitlers plan
