    unfortunately, there are too many people that believe in conspiracies over the existence of evil or that the evil is the US government deceiving the people into unjust wars (remember to a lib, all war is unjust).

    /salute those that gave their lives serving at pearl Harbor that fateful morning. :salute:

    Just a word for you parents of public school children. Be sure you teach them this type of history because, believe me, you can’t count on it being mentioned in school today.

    Ask when they get home today. It would be interesting to hear.

    The real tragedy is how those guys didn't have to die, since we had [ame=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0743201299/qid=1134004705/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/002-2957366-1159252?s=books&v=glance&n=283155]broken the Jap radio code months before[/ame]. FDR was warned about an impending attack, since we had cut off gasoline supplies to Japan, but the Navy guy who brought it up was quietly sacked. There's also Operation Rainbow Five (no, not Rainbow Six the video game), a plan to manuver Japan or Germany into firing the first shot, which also came to light days before Pearl Harbor. The right wing was infuriated at FDR over this, but Pearl Harbor essentially let him off the hook.

    No doubt you have “credible” links to these claims, right?
    Just wondering, but I’d love to see them.

    Whoops, forgot the link

    http://www.mises.org/story/688

    That article doesn't mention Rainbow Five, but I remember it from a book about FDR, I think it was either FDR's Folly or maybe The New Dealers' War. If I can find it I'll try and get my scanner working.

    He may have a point:

    Looks pretty authoratative, but I'm going to see if I can find the book.

    Well, I really was looking for a "Credible" link without an agenda.
    Got anything like that?

    I'll look around, but on your link I saw this...
    That sounds exactly like the movie script..which came out before 02...the site says, "Newly released naval records" dated March 11, 2002.

    I'm not sold yet, I will admit shit happens.

    Edit: Spelling, I really didn't mean witch. :)
