A day of infamy for sure.  We got smacked but got off the mat and went 12 rounds for the KO.  Don't mess with the US.

A reminder for us here in the US and a reminder for those who consider taking action against us.

And it could very well happen to us again if North Korea launches an offensive nuclear strike with consequences to the world far more dangerous than Pearl Harbor and its aftermath.

I have a 100yr old Pearl Harbor survivor that comes into my pizzeria once a week.
Such a positive beautiful soul that has never uttered a bad word about anyone (atleast in my presence).

He is not allowed to pay, he is welcome to eat whatever he wants, free of charge.

I once had to go to Hawaii on business and went right to the Arizona memorial.  Drops of oil were still coming out and fanning out on the water surface.It was one of the most somber moments I've experienced knowing over 1000 men are entombed 10 feet below me.  Truly humbling.

This historical event is a fascinating read if you have time to look into it.  How it happened that day, why it was so effective for the Japanese to do what they didn't, and then the subsequent changes to our military afterwards still resonates today.

 

It's a sad day, we should all take a moment to pause and reflect on the sacrifice our soldiers gave that day.  It also started a very bloody and terrible war in the Pacific that ended with the beginning of the nuclear weapons age.  The world changed forever that day.  Never forget.

If the Pearl Harbor attack occurred during the the reign of the prior administration there is no doubt that we would have not only apologized to the Japanese for provoking them into attacking us but would have also offered our regrets and payment to the world for the environmental disaster that our sinking ships had unleashed.

There are few other world events that had such an impact to motivate this country. What needed to be done, got done. Many never overcame the sacrifice made while many more paid the ultimate price. I am totally at a loss of words for the lack of coverage on such an event that defines who we are. Have we slipped into the abyss where history doesn't matter anymore? God bless those brave souls. Never forget.

Good man.

 

My 95 year old mom is still with us, she was an Australian Army nurse in the WWII Pacific theater. There aren't many of these folks left.
