Oh, Yeah — Pearl Harbor

The media have understandably largely ignored the anniversary of Pearl Harbor because we have a real tragedy to grieve over, the death of a foreign guy at the all-too-young age of 95, who is famous for being partially responsible for destroying the only functional government left in Africa. We're grieving so much that Obama ordered us all to fly the US flag at half-mast to honor a communist, terrorist foreigner. God knows that's more important than the loss of a couple thousand US military personnel.  Nicholas Stix puts it this way:

Has Anyone Heard Any Mention by the Media Today of Pearl Harbor? (Madiba Watch)

By Nicholas Stix

Every time we turn on the TV, it’s Mandela, Mandela, Mandela.

Have the media used this genocidal, racist, foreign terrorist as a pretext for sweeping one of the most important days in American history under the rug?

But I misspoke. They are not “disappearing” American history, in spite of Mandela’s having been a genocidal, racist, foreign terrorist, but because of that. 

And for those of you who know all about Mandela and Rosa Parks, but never heard of Pearl Harbor, Nicholas Stix goes on to explain that HERE.

  1. Roosevelt could have prevented Pearl Harbor, but he wanted to goad the Japanese into a war so that he would have an excuse to bring the US into the wider war against the Axis. It's telling that for the first year of US involvement in the war, we primarily were fighting Germans in Europe, rather than the Japanese who had supposedly left us with no choice but to fight. Of course, the truth is entirely the opposite. If anything, Roosevelt boxed in the Japanese until they had no choice but to fight a war that, strategically, did not favor them at all.

    The more you know...
