    So, I am not going to lose any sleep over someone attacking a place we should not even be back in 1941.
    And, telling me that us having had a naval base in Hawaii back then somehow assures my freedom today is a bunch of bull****.
    Feel free to disagree.
    This is disappointing from you calamity.
    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 .

    The US did not have to take sides in that war. Japan was not a threat to the USA.

    Not only did FDR make slaves out of US citizens by conscripting them into the military, he also imposed wage freezes on the men & women working for the military-industrial complex.

    FDR was one evil mother****er.
    A couple of reasons I think. Because it was the right thing to do as "friendly" western European countries were fighting Germany and Italy, to whom Japan was militarily allied. True Japan was no threat to the U.S., but I think at some point they would have become a threat to Russia: a prime target for Germany. So it made strategic sense to hinder Japan economically.

    And the other reason I think was it made sense from an economic perspective. The U.S. became a major exporter of war material.

    Honestly it made sense for Japan to attempt to cripple our fleet. They needed the resources the Dutch East Indies held and they figured that there was no way the U.S. would just stand by and let them gobble that up. Which was correct.

    I do think we had to take a side however. You couldn't oppose Germany and Italy and not oppose Japan as well.

    The USA did not have to take sides in the war in Europe in the first place.

    We obviously have a difference of opinions on this. Which is okay.

    Leave it to the Air Force, the only branch to reject prior service Soldiers and Marines because they're "too military".
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Re: This makes me sick

    I was talking to an Air Force guy yesterday that said exactly that. He said even in Boot Camp they only have to "work" till 1630 then go home. Does anyone know if that is true?

    I'm not a fan of American Hegemony, aka empire. A base in the middle of the Pacific, which is now a state, is simply too costly and outside the purview of our founding. Of course, our paradigm is that America is the world's cop and therefore should be in the Philippians and battling Japanese on the Pacific Islands no one really cares about. But, I ask why?
