I used to think that this was an honorable war but now I'm not so sure. I've read numerous books, literature that suggests otherwise. From what I've learned, FDR needed Japan to attack in order for him to go after Hitler. So, after cutting off oil and resources to Japan he had his motive. Why would FDR screw with Japan? They had no imperialistic aggressions towards the United States prior to their attack on Pearl Harbor. It was the carrot that FDR needed to enter the war. Shut the oil and the resources off and you have one pissed off country. Kimmel, who was made the scapegoat, was a true hero imo.
