Default Re: Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor was a result of US earlier actions.


So was 10-11.


While the results were catastrophic,


Are we sackling for it?

Everything is always the result of compounded prior events, but before we take your bait, please correct your typos so we might have a clue as to where you're coming from.

On second thought, forget about it. We don't need that discussion here.

And August 6th '45 was a result of earlier Japanese actions..... As for the Fords, I am hoping to finish the wood in my 47 tonner's bed after work today!

My Uncle Carl Kessel was on a mine sweeper sweeping Tokyo Bay for the signing of Japan's surrender. I asked him what was that was Like to be there during a historical moment? He said: "I couldn't wait to get the hell out of there and back home in West Virginia." As a little kid, I guess I was expecting some patriotic, inspirational statement. His comment still echoes the depth of this event to this day.

The greatest generation just wanted to get home... To West Virginia, Orcas Island, Miami Fla and the Bronx. They had been to Hell and back like most of us can't begin to imagine. I read the books, then fall fast asleep, secure that my homeland will still be the same when I awake. It wasn't a sure thing when they fell asleep. If they did. My father in law came home from the Phillipines hoping never to leave his hometown of Hingham Mass as long as he lived.

Yep My Grandfather would never drive a Japanese car
Interestingly it seems that in WW2 It was the losers that emerged eventually in better shape. Look at the economies of Germany and Japan. I guess every thing got rebuilt with modern technology under the Marshall Plan.

Probably shouldn't post this....


Japan was kicking china's ass up till they messed with the west. Then... well history. greatest generation, including my great uncle whom past there.


Japan is somewhat western now, they retained their culture, which is great. Probably be one of the first to step in for you in the area. But they have no army. To understand asian cultural history back 1000yrs is to understand japanese were top dog in the area.


Being progressive is a good thing or hate. I have a friend that was as a child in the japanese internment camps. Shes a real western lady, very much so, more then most.

You know to rewire NYC with fiber lines is harder then putting new high speed lines in a development in Iowa.
