    Nobody can question the effectiveness of internment in preventing future attacks
    There were NONE after we locked up the Japanese

    As a matter of fact, a big percentage of them, around 35%-40%, weren't American citizens, and weren't going to become citizens..

    I knew a few of them weren't but I didn't know it was that much.

    Didn't look it up lately, but it's near that percentage somewhere.

    So that makes it ok to throw innocent people into concentration camps? Is that what you think America is about?

    Now, if attacks continued after the Japanese were locked up, you could claim that internment did not stop the attacks

    But since the attacks stopped AFTER we locked up the Japanese, you can't argue with success
