Actually paleocon revisiionist arguments regarding FDR prolonging the Great Depression have been thoroughly debunked by those little things we here in the reality based community call facts, there was only a slight recession between 1937 and 1938 4 years into FDR's term, the rest of his term saw huge economic growth of 9-10% every year FDR was in office and unemployment fell every year FDR was in office.FDR has prolonged the Great Depression, and his legacy has led to his mistakes now being repeated with the Bailout Bubble - all that economic loss will shave off quite a bit of time from the life expectancy of every human being on earth, often making the difference between life and death!
That is what we would refer to as a lie. It was U.S. developed, drilled, refined, and owned oil that was not sold to Japan, no threats were ever made to any nation regarding their trade relations with Japan.You're spinning so hard that plugging you up to a generator would cut the world-wide electricity costs in half!
The word "boycott" is used to describe one's individual choices as a consumer, while what the U.S. government did was a use of the armed forces to initiate aggression against a specific nation and/or its trading partners. You try to sell oil to Japan - boom, you're dead! To say that's not war is like saying murder by strangulation isn't murder because you've merely deprived your victim of air!
I noticed that you provided no link to back up this ridiculous claim.
Except that a) Japan was engaged in a aggressive war of conquest and in Asia and B) Israel has never once in their entire history engaged in a aggressive war and have accepted every single peace proposal since 1948 which hasn't called for the destruction of Israel through a demographic shift aka "the right of return".
Um no they must end their aggressive genocidal war in the Asian mainland or we won't sell them any more oil to fuel their war machine. To which they responded with an act of war against Pearl Harbor.
Yes, Japan must be under the total control of the United States, no other option is acceptable.
Jews began being mass murdered in 1939, if Hitlers ambition was not to slaughter all of the Jews then why exactly wasn't the Madagascar Plan ever initiated?I have. I know that Germany has exterminated millions of Jews, including some of my relatives. But that conference didn't take place in 1933; it took place in 1942, after America has entered the war, and the invasion of the Soviet Union started showing proof that Germany's optimism for a quick victory was very much unwarranted.
Hitler wanted a "racially pure" Germany free of "undesirable" cultural influences, and it makes a whole lot more economic sense to ransom the "undesirables" out rather than just kill them. He initially thought the Jewish prisoners would be an asset, a bargaining chip for their wealthy and politically-influential relatives abroad, but if other nations weren't willing to pay to rescue them, they became a liability - keeping millions of prisoners alive while the nation is being invaded from both sides and suffers fuel and food shortages is not easy.
America's unwillingness to rescue those Jews, even turning back ships filled with refugees, are some of the things that mainstream historians have been trying to de-emphasize. Some stories get through (ex. MS St Louis), while most do not. The reality is that the U.S. government has contributed to the Holocaust more than it has helped end it.
lol you cited a forum and the citation offered (with no link gee I wonder why?) which tracks back through a google search to Politics Religion Wake-up America, Jews, Judaism, neo-cons and America which hosts some interesting little neo-Nazi tidbits; such as, THE HIDDEN NATION OF THE JEWS Understanding Jewish Influence and JEWS IN THE MEDIA***Just as there was no Communist plot to undermine Czarist Russia. Oops.
Sure, not all Jews were Communists, but a large fraction of the leading Communists were Jews. And not all Japanese Americans were loyal to the emperor either - except of course there were fewer of them, and America had the economic resources to lock them up more humane conditions than the German equivalent.
FYI Lenin and Stalin were both Christians.
The U.S. was not in a period of expansion at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack, in fact this was a period of U.S. isolationism.Ah, right, typical American public school education. "Before Pearl Harbor, which no one could have seen coming, America was just sitting there in Hawaii, one of the 13 original colonies, and minding its own business, not even thinking about colonizing anyone half a world away"...
MAGIC intercepts prove conclusively that Togo rejected Sato's proposal for unconditional surrender provided the imperial house is preserved, quite frankly sir you have no clue what you're talking about."Have been interpreted by some historians" my foot,
Have you even heard of the plans for the "honorable death of 100 million"?
They destroyed the entire Pacific fleet save for a few aircraft carriers.Japan was never a threat to the United States,
We didn't start it, it is they who attacked us.and the U.S. could have ended that war at any time - or not have started it in the first place.

Wow, looks like Obama's got some serious balls calling out holocaust deniers, the very people looked so highly upon by our society. Damn, the guys got some guts, you got to give him that.
Appointed by Lenin and his supporters to General Secretary a position he used through subterfuge to obtain absolute power.Stalin,
Hereditary heir to the throne.and Hirohito.
Then luckily for us FDR was an elected representative within a Constitutional democratic-republic.I see the government as one evil system, regardless of departments, parties, and even national boundaries.
All kings are foes of all the men they rule!
Oh and that might be the most ridiculous answer to an honest question that I've ever heard.

I'm just hoping that Ahmadinejad will lose the upcoming elections and the new president wil have total respect for the memory of the 6 million innocents who lost their lives.
Denying the Holocaust or any other genocide is an act as barbaric as having committed them.
Hope that Obama will put pressure on Turkey to finally admit the Armenian genocide
