    They made it easy to rally the Nation? That's not true. FDR was desperate for the US to get into the "real war" in Europe so he made it easy for the Japanese to commit an atrocity that would galvanize America into action. The dirty little secret is that everyone including the great orator criminally misjudged the Japanese. Most government documents from the 30's indicate that the Japanese were little nearsighted monkeys who were incapable of building a plane that would fly or a ship that would float. It was racism magnified by 10 square and the fDR administration had no functioning intelligence network. Strangely enough the US relied on bigotry and crazy assumptions prior to WW2. After the US entered the war the Brits were shocked about how little we actually knew about the enemy.

    Does your grammar just suck, or are you really making a statement in the present tense?

    The US under two FDR administrations had no intelligence network. Wild Bill Donovan tried to create an espionage network shortly after the War started but the administration was so conflicted that it took a federal judge to appoint Hoover's FBI as the lead espionage agency but the FBI had no experience in espionage and they were engaged in arresting suspected spies instead of turning them around. The Navy might have broken the Japanese code but the FDR administration was only interested in steering the Japanese fleet to Pearl so that we could get into the "real war". When FDR's appointed former WW! soldier lost his entire army about three months into the Pacific war and escaped leaving his Army to surrender the FDR administration awarded him the Medal of Honor. Slick politics trumps real life when the media is on your side.

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and just assume your grammar sucks.

    Haha, laughable analysis. I'm sure it was solely racism that caused our entrance into the war, discount the messy details of oh, I don't know ..Pearl Harbor or the US merchant ships under attack constant attack or...our closest allies being slaughtered by the Nazis or the rape of Nanking in 37 by the Jap animals.
