kind of hard to belive how fast 63 years can fly by. the shot that brought the states into the most horrific and bloodiest wars in the history of man, and brought with it, the ultimate horror: nuclear war. lets hope it never happens again.

December 7th is a day of rememberance in the U.S. marking the attack on Pearl Harbor. But to me it is also a day to remember ALL men and women, regardless of nationality, who were caught up in that war. Pearl Harbor only woke us, the U.S., to the reality of the world at that time. On that day we took our heads out of the sand and made a commitment. We fought alongside and against countries we now call friend. It was a terrible time but it is a part of the world's history.

Certainly don't want to start any flame-war here or anything but what do you guys think of the suggestion that Churchil new the attack on Pearl Harbour was going to happen but did nothing as he knew it would bring the Americans into the war?

Certainly plausible don't you think? <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I would say it probally ranks right up there with the idea that the jewish people knew about 911 on 910.. Pure hogwash

I have been to Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial and let me tell ya it was quite moving to think that i was on the exact spot where all that death and destruction happened. I was able to see the oil bubbling up even after over 62 years and i never once forgot all the brave men (over 1,100) that were entombed below me for ever. If you have the opportunitiy to go to the Arizona Memorial by all means do it, it is well worth the experience. God Bless our military and God Bless the United States of America.

Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese Ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Japanese Government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya. Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong. Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam. Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands. Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island. This morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

I believe I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounded determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God.

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December seventh, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire."
