A Day That Continues To Live in Infamy

by

Attack on Pearl HarborDecember 7th, 1941. Sunday. G-d’s day. The pagan Japanese cowardly launched a vicious and totally unprovoked sneak attack that woke up America to the threat posed by the Axis of evil. 350 planes, attacking in two waves, were determined to destroy America’s resolve along with her fleet, the envy of the world.

When the smoke cleared 2,333 of America’s finest and bravest lay dead and 1,139 lay wounded in agony and disbelief. The fleet anchored at Pearl Harbor lay in ruin. And America, the sleeping giant, was awoken. Because of America’s resolve the axis of evil was ultimately and totally defeated. And America remembers.

The death toll at Pearl Harbor has since been eclipsed by the bloodshed that occurred on 9/11, nearly 60 years later. And we again face an axis of evil. Once again there are those who deny that America must win. But we will never surrender. And we will not stop until we achieve total victory.

That is the lesson of December 7th, a day which continues to live in infamy.

G-d bless these United States of America.

    First, type the word “God,” for crying out loud. I’m an atheist and your reticence to acknowledge your belief in a divine creator bothers me. Second, your take on the American run up to WWII is historically inaccurate. The Pearl Harbor attack was definitely galvanizing, but the United States had already been mobilizing itself since the very late 30’s.

    Compared to the Royal Navy it was…..meh.

    And because the russians and british opted way sooner to make a stand. Especially the russians, what they both sufferred and achieved overshadows all other allies.

    Sorry, but comparing a bunch of terrorists living in caves with an alliances of several off the world´s most powerful countries ain´t cut it.

    Yes, I do agree that things are much more dangerous now, but I was trying to draw an analogy. Thanks for your input, PG!
