Remember Pearl Harbor



"Lest We Forget"

December 7, 1941

I saw a World War II veteran on TV this morning and he said that America was "fat, dumb, and happy" when the Japanese attacked and we should never be in that position again.

Wise words for today as well.

Absolutely prophetic. I can't think of a better way to describe us on 9-10, and we're slowly but surely sliding back into it.

IMO, the biggest slap in the face to those Vets, particularly the PH survivors is the 9-11 review, and one quote in particular. I'm not sure who made it, as I heard the snippet on the radio while doing chores this morning, but it was basically that we should TALK to our enemies in the ME, because after all, we resolved the Cold War with Russia with TALK.

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

"Falsehoods, if repeated often enough become meta-truths, and they then can become the erroneous baseline for shaping and reinforcing attitudes and for policy-making". --Professor Kenneth Stein from his resignation letter to the Carter Center.

The MSM traffics in this practice.

We have been saying this since 9/11. So how do we get people to listen? My concern is that we will only listen when the bombs start fallin. Better get the draft going, as it's coming.
