On December 7th, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt allowed the Japanese air attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, which he knew about ahead of time, to take place in order to have an excuse to drag America into the Second World War. Roosevelt wanted to destroy National Socialism and save Communism, which is why he poured arms, ammunition, food, clothing, and technical support in to help the U.S.S.R. and to keep the war going. He also was supplying warships and supplies, and even military escorts, to the British, and breaking his own declaration of neutrality agaist Germany. The Germans repeatedly resisted F.D.R.íS provocations, however. They hoped to be able to finish off Communist Russia and negotiate a peace treaty with Britain before the U.S. became actively involved in the war. Unable to get Hitler to take the bait, Roosevelt provoked Japan with an oil embargo which they could not avoid responding to. Rooseveltís real intent was to go to war, but to marshall the U.S.ís resources and troops into the European theater of operations against Germany first, not against Japan, who had attacked us! British Prime Minister Churchill and President Roosevelt both were told of the impending Pear Harbor attack days ahead of time, but they decided to do nothing, gleeful for the excuse to bring the U.S. into the war, since the majority of the Amerian public up until that time was strongly against U.S. involvement. Some of the heroes of the opposition to U.S. involvement in the war included Col. Charles Lindbergh and the America First Committee.
Like 9/11, the attack on Pearl Harbor served our enemiesí interests, and made a handy excuse to stampede our people into war. Truly, this was a day which will live in infamy.
