Today marks the 71st year anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor naval base. How sad that this date - which would live in infamy - has been nearly forgotten by toady's American population and especially our youth. Tragically it has been the successful revision of our American history by the Left and the evils of it that has made us weak and vulnerable to a present day "Pearl Harbor" of EXPONENTIAL proportions (Rev. 6).
To set the stage for 1941, tensions were high between Tokyo and Washington. Japan had been flexing its military muscle through out China and ravishing the Chinese people and their neighboring countries. Japan's naval might was astounding and they dominated the Pacific ocean. It was under the deception of peace and negotiations that Japan struck without warning. They attacked first, THEN declared war! How and why did America not see what was eventually coming baffles people to this day? In light of Japan's aggressive military advancements and military policies the evidence was more than abundant. Sadly, our guard was up BUT... we deceived ourselves that we were safe from the threat of the Japanese Imperial Navy and their military aggressions. The mind set was that it could not happen to us? We are safe, surrounded by the two big ponds and we are America, the greatest nation in the world. Who could EVER attack us? This same mindset was also present on 9/11/2001.
