Today is the 76th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor invasion....
We all owe a HUGE debt, to the GREATEST GENERATION, who fought and died
for the freedoms we enjoy today. Thank You to all, who are still with us
today from serving in WWII. beer

Did you watch the News today? What did they say about Pearl Harbor? Nothing on the 3 different News stationed I watched today. Just more ass grabbing reports. So much for a day that will never be forgotten. We owe more to the people who fought for our freedom and to the ones that lost their lives so we can do the things we do in the USA.

I didn't see anything reported on evening nightly national news..
pretty sad. But on the cable/satellite stations (MSNBC) they talked
about it, and covered the pearl harbor attack. Wish I could have lived
in that era.

**NOTE**
Sorry for my mistake, but the Subject Title should have read:

" A Date Which Will Live In Infamy" from FDR's speech addressing Congress,
and the Nation. on Dec.8th 1941

For those that wish to widen their understanding of the process of how Japan actually made the decision to attack the US, the book "Japan 1941" by ERI Hotta published 2013, is quite detailed, informative, and almost sad. My takeaway, very few in the Japan government/military ever thought they could prevail/resist in a conflict against the Us at the most for more then 3? years tops, but hardcore warmongers, a reticent emperor, and inertia allowed it to happen. The actual decision to commence the attack was made on Nov 1, 1941. The decision to not attack could easily gone the other way. The book is a worthy read.

That was the Admiral that instituted the plan.Lots of peace people back then Linberg was one of the biggest.But right after the attack he backed FDR.I doubt today you could get 1/2 the country to do a thing.Rocky

My grandfather landed at Pearl Harbor in mid November 1941. He was there for sub school but when he saw the tower they used to teach underwater escape he bailed and transferred to aircraft mechanic school.
The morning of the attack he was on the western point at the mouth of the harbor. The Japanese overflew that area but made no attacks on it.

He was assigned to the Enterprise when she made port after the attack. He sailed on her during the raids on Kwajalein and Wake. They supported the Doolittle raid, fought the Battle of Midway, and the Battle of the Solomons.

When Enterprise returned to Pearl in 1943 he went ashore and later transferred to the San Jacinto where he became George Bush's mechanic through the end of the war.

He had nothing good to say about Bush and cursed him loudly through the election. I guess the rough handed techs didn't like snooty pilots back then either.

What you are referring to only scratches the surface regarding the questing of the wisdom by many Japanese of starting a war with the US. The majority of the military was of the Samurai spirit and did not question orders. Two main motivating factors, our trade restrictions was strangling the island nation, and a inflexible minority war culture in the military. Even The Emperor was on the sidelines on the issue and caught off guard. Most thought it would not happen because the chance of success was next to nil, but inertia was the winner, and the rest is history. Its an interesting read the book. There are some current applicable lessons here.
