The public supported America’s engagement in World War II largely because of the shock effect of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Zbigniew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard
At 7:56 on the morning of December 7th 1941 Japanese aircraft swooped down over Hawaii. Their target – the US Pacific fleet at anchor at its base at Pearl Harbor. World War II in Colour e5: Red Sun Rampant, Channel 5 2009
December 7th 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. F D Roosevelt
Japan may strike over the weekend. Hilo Tribune Herald, Sunday 30th November 1941
It may have been a surprising attack to the American people but not to the Federal government and the military. Months before the attack they knew the Japanese were preparing for an all-out assault in the Pacific. Alex Jones, 9/11 The Road to Tyranny, 2002
On 7th December 1941 when Franklin Roosevelt was President, Japanese aircraft attacked the US Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor, drawing America into the war. But did the the government know in advance this attack was going to happen? Was there a hidden agenda? Conspiracies – 9/11 and the Evil in America, 2004
But they didn’t make preparations at Pearl Habor for that attack and I believe that’s because they wanted the war because we were in a depression and that was the only way they saw to get out of the depression. Norman Livergood, author America, Awake!
The question was how we should manoeuvre them into firing the first shot ... It was desirable to make sure the Japanese be the ones to do this so that there should remain no doubt as to who were the aggressors. Henry L Stimson, Secretary of War
Mitsuo Fuchida, a commander in the Imperial Japanese navy, was the air-strike leader of the Japanese carrier force that attacked Pearl Harbor. Considered one of Japan’s most skilful fliers, Commander Fuchida ... led the first wave of 183 aeroplanes against the US fleet at Pearl Harbor ... He was the one who shouted the war cry, ‘Tora, Tora, Tora’.
Of the 70 Japanese officers who participated in the raid on Pearl Harbor, Fuchida was the only one who returned to Japan alive. He later fought against the United States throughout the war in the Pacific.
Fuchida was a national hero in Japan, but at war’s end he was a disillusioned and bitter man. Don Gilleland, Unique Story of Pearl Harbor
It is clear that not only was the attack on Pearl Harbor known weeks in advance it was outright wanted and provoked. Zeitgeist, also cited John Nada, Wake Up Call, 2007
In the months leading up to Pearl Harbor Roosevelt had done everything in his power to anger the Japanese through posture and aggression ... On December 4th, three days before the attack, Australian Intelligence told Roosevelt about a Japanese task-force moving towards Pearl Harbor. Roosevelt ignored it ... On December 7th 1941 Japan attacked Pearl Harbor killing 2,400 people. ibid.
We’re now just finding out, and it’s becoming common knowledge, that the attack on Pearl Harbor wasn’t the surprise attack we were all told it was. In fact the powers that be knew days ahead of time that the attack was pending. Dave vonKleist, 9/11 In Plane Sight the director’s cut, 2004
On December 7 1941 at 6 a.m. the Japanese planes appeared in the skies above Hawaii. It was a Sunday morning. The surprise was complete. At Pearl Harbor that day seventy warships lay at anchor, including 8 battleships. Torpedo dive-bombers attacked the lines of ships and the airfields. Then high-level bombers made further assaults. In an attack that lasted a bare 2 hours 6 battleships were sunk and damaged, numerous smaller ships were sunk and damaged, more than 160 aircraft were destroyed. World War II: The Complete History: The Day of Infamy, Discovery 2000
I can run wild for the first six months or a year. I have utterly no confidence for the second and third years. Anyone who has seen the oil fields of Texas and the factories of Detroit knows this. Admiral Yamamoto
December 7th 1941: American naval and air targets at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, were attacked by the Japanese. The following morning the United States joined the Allies, declaring war against Japan and Germany. The attack on Pearl Harbor changed the course of history. Unsolved History s1e8: Myths of Pearl Harbor, Discovery 2002
The Japanese attack did not begin from the air but from the sea. And the first shots of the Pacific war were fired by America not by Japanese. This action preceded the infamous bombing of Pearl Harbor by more than four hours. ibid.
Despite the risks the Japanese put the midget-submarine plan into action hoping to cripple America’s Pacific fleet. Japanese preparations for the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor began in the autumn. The midget-subs were the coup de grace in one of the most daring military actions ever devised. ibid.
As a result of the strike twenty-one warships were sunk or damaged, including all of the battleships in Pearl Habor. 2,390 Americans were killed. Another 1,178 were wounded. ibid.
That brings up another myth: that the Japanese were responsible for all of the American deaths at Pearl Harbor. War is not only hell, it is chaos. ibid.
Although the US Pacific fleet was shattered, Admiral Nagumo, the commander of the Japanese task force, failed to strike the fatal blow intended. His primary targets – the American aircraft-carriers – were not in port at the time of the attack. ibid.
A third wave attack never happened. ibid.
All 8 US battleships are put out of action. 1,178 Americans are wounded. 2,403 are killed. America: The Story of the US: WWII, History 2010
27 hours after the attack America declares war on Japan. 3 days later the US is at war with Germany. ibid.
The fifth Japanese midget-sub is still missing. Burl Burlingame, author Advance Force – Pearl Harbor
In these startling frames we see a great fleet destroyed, a great nation humbled, and a world changed. Pearl Harbor Declassified, Discovery 2013
The lesson of Pearl Harbor isn’t in the number of ships lost but rather in the number of human lives lost. And that lesson is always bitter. Daniel Martinez, historian
It will be for ever remembered as a Day of Infamy. Without warning Japan’s bombers rained down terror on a Sunday morning in Hawaii. Lasting just two hours their attack on Pearl Harbor would bring the United States into World War II. Days that Shook the World s2e3: Attack on Pearl Harbor, Discovery 2004
For the last year the United States has been secretly decoding Japan’s diplomatic signals. ibid.
The Americans have always considered Pearl Habor to be invulnerable to attack by torpedo bomber. ibid.
It is not the death blow to the US Navy Japan had hoped for. ibid.
