RIP to all of the military personnel and civilians who died on that day of infamy.

This never fails to rile up my patriotism:



“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”

RIP to everyone who sacrificed on that day of infamy

The Pearl Harbor attack did not achieve anything beside pissing America off

Japan should had launched a 3rd wave and take out the docks and the bays and the fuel depots

It is now just another day fading into memory. Not a word on any "news" networks up here. Folks say "lest we forget" but they do forget. frown

Google, which has never known an obscure birthday/holiday/lefty cause that it won't create a "Google Doodle" for, did nothing to commemorate Pearl Harbor Day. Bing however did.


"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which The Party is always right." - George Orwell, 1984

If you want to control the country you need to change three wirds and the history - Orwell

Go back and read 1984.

We read 1984 in high school English class. I wonder if kids do today?

I did not know this was done . That is poignant and touching.
