Whcih was the biggest??????????????????
I Say the JFK assn - what do you think!
In what way?
9-11 did the most damage.
JFK killing was probably more emotional to all Americans.
Pearl Harbor created the most hate against a foreign empire as it justified the use of the atomic bomb in the minds of most people especially US soldiers. Even 9-11 didn't justify the use of nukes in the eyes of most people.
I wasn't alivedureing PH - but it was almost a given that the USA would be involved in WW2. So PH was not that big a surprise.
JFK ASSN was totally out of-the -blue.
re -9/11 - that wasnt that big a surprise either -couldhave been a lot worse.................................
I think all 3 were a shock but what was worse?
Pearl Harbor actually spurred on the saving of the world by the US.
JFK was loved by many so it was an emotional loss. Country kept right on going.
I wasn't really that shocked about 911.
Pales in comparison to Kennedy saan
I would go with Pearl Harbor
It was a slap in the face and a wake-up call to isolationist America
It is what pushed us into becoming a Super Power
Really? I guess you watch "The Man Who Saw Tomorrow"? You knew New York would be attacked. Just not by missles!
But 9-11 showed what just 19 guys could do.
2 acts that lead to war have less impact than an assassination?
Are you mental?
Pearl Harbor lead to, around, 300,000 Americans killed.
Women started working jobs only men used to do. [led to the femenist movement]
we put asians and some germans in camps
Built the interstate system as a response
The Battleship died as the Queen of the Ocean and the Aircraft carrier took over.
And that's just off the top of my head.
The Soviets lost 20 million in WW2.
We lost about 250,000.
PH was not a surprise . Lots of tension between us and the Japs before PH.
Kennedy was out of left-field.
9/11 was not a biggie to me or that unexpected compared to theJFKK asn
