    My brother in law forwarded a recently discovered cache of pictures from Pearl Harbor. If someone fluent in Computer will volunteer, I will send them to you so you can post them

    why do you bring up the Auto Workers in a Pearl harbor thread? :cuckoo:
    There just may have been a few future UAW members at Pearl Harbor.

    The Bombing of Pearl was a tragedy in many ways. Not only did it kill over 2400 people,primarily servicemen, but it set the stage for Curtis LeMay's devastating firebombing of Japan, and it sent thousands of Americans into the war in both the Pacific and Europe.
    Had Japan simply ignored the US threat on their flank, in the Philippines, Roosevelt may have found it impossible to garner the support required for a declaration of war.
    By December 7, 1941, a day that will live in infamy, the German Werhmacht had already lost their chance at a knockout blow against Russia. A Year later, before the US presence was felt in Europe, Stalingrad destroyed any remaining chance Germany had of victory.

    Yamamoto had predicted Japan's defeat before the attack. It is unfortunate that the Japanese hawks did not listen to him.
