President Franklin D. Roosevelt: Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
We will always remember. I had several family members in that war.
So did I Jan, and they all came home safe and sound.
Mine too. I still have one living, a 93-yr old cousin.
Same here Jan, my oldest brother is still a living veteran of that war, he was in the Navy.
I almost forgot what day this is. Thank you, Rooster, for this post.
I will never forget the Greatest Generation, who overcame Pearl Harbor and much more besides.
Never forget the fact, that there was a warning about the upcoming attack, but some asshole just didn't bother to read his mail. Had he done that, the whole "surprise attack" wouldn't had been such a surprise to even begin with.
Plus the Japanese diplomats didn't get their message to the White House until the attack had already started.
From what I've read ... the diplomatic message wasn't a declaration of war.
And the Japanese military didn't want a declaration of war, until after they attacked us.
Here's a link to the diplomatic message:
I've read that also and it's true. It was a warning that was way too late.
We'll never forget! This past week we lost an American hero and president, George H.W. Bush who served in World War II. God bless all those great Americans who fought in that war.
we will never forget this false flag and the scarifies these poor pawns made to further the sinister motives of their leadership. why not invade , its seems a small force could have taken over all the islands. Just an excuse to get volunteers go to war . not only will I never forget but I will learn so we can avoid this type of propaganda in the future. R.I.P WWII veterans
Sounds like it, doesn't it?
They fought for our freedom, you should be down on your hands and knees thanking them, instead of trying to demean their services. It wasn't propaganda when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.
I regret my comment on this day of honor.
That's OK, I understand.
