There would not even have been a Battle of Midway without our Aircraft Carriers, none of which were in Pearl at the time.
Midway was the pivot point in the War in the Pacific.
With Japan also in the Aleutions, we had a real problem, and many thousands of our soldiers paid the ultimate price.
To think that the USA Navy attacked at Pearl was not the pervue of the USA is hard to even fathom in one's head.
Like saying we shouldn't have expelled the Japanese from the Philipines, MacArther,
or dropped the two bombs, to prevent a half million more dead soldiers .
