Hmmm, more and more LRS-like. Vulgar, are you? Okay, fits the mold.<quoted text>

By the way, all the Flag Officers in Hawaii, had be appointed by .... FDR!
Me full of Scheiße? YOU ARE! The Democrats controlled BOTH Houses of Congress from the 73rd Congress (January 1933) until the 80th Congress (January 1947)(in other words, before FDR entered the White House until three years after he died) so stop pointing your finger it the wrong direction. In fact your finger is probably up your azz!
I never said Congress was Repub. Re-read. Unlike you, when I don't know or am not sure, I say "I guess, I believe, I think". I don,t let hate sentiments guide my judgement. Do that and you won't look so foolish all the time
So, fine, Congress was Democrat. emocrats of both houses were isolationists, and FDR did not agree with them and therefore started to secretly re-arm the US and help Churchill with, incidentally, land-lease, which involved, amongst others, 30 most-of-them WW 1 dereclict destroyers of which, I believe, more than half were used as salvage. And the UK paid for thos 30 destroyers in territories and gold.
