    I had to look it up because I didn't know we even considered declaring war on Italy. Guess I'm historically challenged. Yes to both. 1941. World War II (1939–1945) — Infoplease.com

    Are you testing the historic knowledge of the members here? lol

    Spoiler alert:
    Germany declared war on America.
    Technically America declared war on Germany after Germany declared war on America... so yes we did, but not first.

    Are you trying to trick us?

    There is no trick here, it was a straight question. J.D. Hayworth didn't know the the answer. John McCain nailed him.

    Oh, lol

    I guess I jumped the gun on my vote there, thinking you were asking who declared war on who first.

    It was the FDR administration's fault we got attacked in the first place.

    Just saying.

    At least he knew who we fought. I don't know if you can say that for most Americans.
