    Attack on Pearl Harbor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The attack on Pearl Harbor (or Hawaii Operation, Operation Z, as it was called by the Japanese Imperial General Headquarters)[6] was a surprise military strike conducted by the Japanese navy against the United States' naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on the morning of Sunday, December 7, 1941, later resulting in the United States becoming militarily involved in World War II. It was intended as a preventive action to keep the U.S. Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia against Britain, the Netherlands, and the United States. The attack consisted of two aerial attack waves totaling 353[7] aircraft, launched from six Japanese aircraft carriers.

    The attack sank four U.S. Navy battleships (two of which were raised and returned to service late in the war) and damaged four more. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, and one minelayer, destroyed 188 aircraft, and caused personnel losses of 2,402 killed[8] and 1,282 wounded. The power station, shipyard, maintenance, and fuel and torpedo storage facilities, as well as the submarine piers and headquarters building (also home of the intelligence section) were not hit. Japanese losses were minimal, at 29 aircraft and four midget submarines, with 65 servicemen killed or wounded.

    The attack was a major engagement of World War II. It occurred before a formal declaration of war and before the last part of a 14-part message was delivered to the State Department in Washington, D.C. The Japanese Embassy in Washington had been instructed to deliver it immediately prior to the scheduled time of the attack in Hawaii. The attack, and especially the surprise nature of it, were both factors in changing U.S. public opinion from an isolationist position to support for direct participation in the war. Germany's prompt declaration of war, unforced by any treaty commitment to Japan, quickly brought the United States into the European Theater as well. Despite numerous historical precedents of unannounced military action, the lack of any formal declaration prior to the attack led President Franklin D. Roosevelt to proclaim "December 7th, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy".


    In actuality, the U. S. Government, directed by President Roosevelt and the C.I.A., conducted meetings at the Japanese Embassy in Washington two months prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor. It was determined that an all-out war would be the answer to the economic crisis Roosevelt had been faced with, and a date was set for the attack -- before the formal declaration was to be made. And that, my fellow Americans (and other readers), is how you've been lied to for all these years. (TIC)

    Do a detailed check on the history of the American Volunteer Group (Flying Tigers).

    At the very least, the Japanese were blatantly provoked.

    I didn't think the CIA exsisted during WW2. They started the OSS during WW2 with highly educated men, and from that the CIA was born after the war.

    Am I wrong about this?

    HAve you run this by Snopes.com or Factcheck.org? You know they are the final authority on everything on the internet.

    Not enough links in conspiracy theory either. I give this Conspiracy theory a C Minus. Check out Terrals' threads to see how a real pro tries to fool people.
