I can’t imagine anything that would infuriate the Americans more. I fear all that we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.

Today is Pearl Harbor Day in the United States. 66 years ago the Japanese attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The attack was a surprise to the men and women at Pearl Harbor. It dealt a serious blow to the US Navy’s Pacific Fleet and caused the United States to enter World War II the next day.
