"The United States found itself at war on December 7, 1941, with the Japanese bombing of the US Navy's base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii."
You REALLY think that Britain just marched into war against Germany all by its lonesome, in order to save POLAND? I.e. that there was NO promise of aid by the USA--but that this assistance all simply "HAPPENED; " and that the good ol' USA, saved the world from evil ol' Germany-- TWICE in the span of 20 years?
Yeah, I guess you believe in Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny too.
Just remember: if someone tells you a story that SOUNDS too good to be true, and doesn't make sense-- IT PROBABLY IS; there's a sucker born every minute-- long with a DOZEN con-artists.
If you care to read the facts, you'll see that FDR ATTACKED Germany and Japan LONG before they did ANYTHING in return; he also made treaties against both nations, which did NOTHING to further the US interest.
He also REFUSED to meet with the Price of Japan regarding his PLEAS for peace-- TWICE-- prior to Pearl Harbor-- in addition to cutting off 98% of Japan's supply of oil, which was guaranteed by treaty, with absolutely NO reason or warning (the Rape of Nanking was over four years earlier, and FDR was ordering US military operations in China AGAINST Japan -- a clear ACT OF WAR, along with many others).
And all the while, FDR pretended that the USA was minding it's OWN LITTLE OL' BUSINESS, and doing NOTHING to bother ANYONE.
I.e. he LIED, and claimed that the USA was NEUTRAL.
Do you STILL want to say that "The United States found itself at war on December 7, 1941, with the Japanese bombing of the US Navy's base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii"?
Sure... and SANTA brought you that X-box, too.
The truth, is that FDR FORCED a retalliative strike, so that he could BLAME the other side for "attacking innocent little us."
Time to grow up and realize there IS no Santa Clause... and history's a little messier than you thought-- but a LOT more plausible.
And speaking of WWII, you should also realize that the Easter Bunny isn't real either; i.e. that WWII was just a encore-performance of WWI, but under FDR instead of Wilson; exept that Wilson did it for money, while FDR did it for GLOBAL POWER. It's no accident that FDR also founded the League of Nations, which later became the UN; he was a global socialist-- i.e. a "Glozi" (rhymes with "Nazi"), and he was willing to pay any price to realize his dream -- in OTHER people's wealth blood-- starting by stealing all privately-owned gold in the USA, and then forcing a war and allying with Russia, Japan's old enemy.
Hopefully the spread of the internet will put all this old fairy-tale history to rest, but it can't happen soon enough.
