PEARL HARBOR DAY!

PEARL HARBOR DAY!  “Today is the Day That Will Live In Infamy”  President Franklin Roosevelt.  On December 7, 1941 the Japanese Navy, while negotiations were proceeding between the United States and Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in a sneak attack.  The Japanese sunk several ships there in Hawaii killing and injuring thousands of our Naval personnel and civilians also.  In the end because of the racist Shinto Religion the Japanese driven back to Japan refused reasonable surrender.  Their God/Emperor (laughter) by his own stubbornness caused, due to estimates of 1,000,000 plus US and Japanese casualties, the use of nuclear weapons at Hiroshima and then Nagasaki Japan.  Met a man yesterday who served on the USS Missouri on the deck where Hirohito standing before a seated General Douglas MacArthur signed the treaty of surrender.
