    Churchill was very pleased that we were now in the war.

    What if Geroge W. Bush had been president Dec. 7,1941.....he's good at invading wrong countries. I'll give ten to one odds he would have bombed Mexico....it's a lot more convenient than having to fly all the way to Asia.

    I read that he mentioned to one of his aides the next morning that he had slept the sleep of the saved. He knew that once the war machine and industrial might of the US got into full swing the Germany and Japan had no chance.

    His exact words as I know, which is what made me think of him.

    The real question, did we let Pearl Harbor happen because we had to get into the damn war and America wasn't going to?

    Given the immigration problem it could have been a prophetic move.

    Kimmel and Short were demoted for dereliction of duty.
    Obama and Hillary are being promoted by democrats for the same thing.

    Fuck you. That's why we apparently haven't learned a thing, it would seem, from either event. It's people like you who spout such ridiculousness like let's just march forward. An intelligent people learn from mistakes, that's why we study history, imbecile!
