    Today in History2004-12-07 at 6:05 am · This is the 63rd Anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. For those of you who respect and revere our soldiers, you do not need me to tell you what to do. For those who do not, I won’t waste my breath.
  • As usual, this past August, there was much angst and whining about the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. So be it. Know this, you twits - If there had been no Pearl Harbor, there would have been no Hiroshima or Nagasaki.

    The headline if this ran in today’s newspapers: U.S. oil embargo leaves Japan homes unheated, cold children motive for counterstrike

    Today, survivors of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor are on the island observing the 64th anniversary of the attack.

    If you’re on the younger side and the only thing you know about Pearl Harbor was what you learned in the 2001 Ben Affleck movie, you might be surprised to learn that, in fact, the Japanese did not stage the attack simply to break up a love triangle.

    Here’s a better look at the facts.

    The most heavily debated result of the attack on Pearl Harbor has nothing to do with the Japanese aggression. In today’s politically correct world, what is more debated is if the eventual U.S. response to Japan’s declaration of war. The “debate” concerns if dropping of atomic bombs on Japan was the “right” thing to do– which I discussed at length in a column this past summer.
    Here’s a toast to those Pearl Harbor veterans who lost their lives that fateful day, and those who are still here to tell us the real story.

    Update: Perhaps somewhat ironically considering the occasion, Frederick L. Ashworth, the weaponeer aboard the B-24 that dropped the atomic bomb on Nagasaki, has passed away at the age of 93.

    Always remember: Had there been no Pearl Harbor, Nanking, Bataan Death March, et al - there would have been no Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
