Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

I have said this before, but I shall say it again and again and again:  Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars.


The first draft of FDRs speech following the Pearl Harbor attack:


For an interesting background on the Pearl Harbor attack  a detailed reference is Robert B. Stinnett, Day of Deceit:  The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor, New York, Free Press, 2000.  From the preface “My sole purpose is to uncover the true story of events leading up to the devastating attack on the naval base [at Pearl Harbor] and adjoining Army facilities, and to document that it was not a surprise to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and many of his top military and policy advisors….  Roosevelt believed that his countrymen would rally only to oppose an overt act of war on the United States. The decision he made, in concert with his advisors, was to provoke Japan through a series of actions into an overt act: the Pearl Harbor attack.”

A summary of Stinnett’s book is in Pearl Harbor FactsAlso, an interesting essay in Pearl Harbor Lies.  Both in Washington’s Blog.

Remember Pearl Harbor--Keep America Alert!

Your national government … is equally a government of peace — a government that intends to retain peace for the American people

Your President says this country is not going to war

The first purpose of our foreign policy is to keep our country out of war.
