We told Japan, "If you don't attack us we will stay out of the war!" I guess they wanted us in it, so we would destroy their country an invest billions to rebuild it. Then they could destroy our economy by offering products cheaper and better than ours, years down the road. Nice conspiracy theory. Actually, it sounds pretty good. I'm sure it's been discussed before. Really, according to "Your All Idiots", the United States has been behind every tragedy that dragged us into war. I'm just surprised he didn't mention how we imploded the WTC on 9/11. If that's the case I would hope our family friend, who died that day(on one of the planes), would give us a call. Or maybe, our government has all those passengers,firemen, and policemen secluded on some deserted island. These people are all cracked out. There's my rant for the day. Peace All!

I suppose we also convinced Poland, France, the Netherlands, etc to give up their land to Hitler for a few years so we could get involved with a war against Germany too. And let's not forget about the carpet bombing of England, or the invasion of Russia or the persucution of 10 million jews. It was all a conspiracy by Uncle Sam. Keep hitting the crackpipe and believing everything you read on the internet douchetard.

<quoted text> And who is to say that the American way of life is the best way for everyone? I think the bigger shame is that you have no sense of other cultures in other parts of the world. One could just as easily argue that Americans are raised in their culture and only know what they've been brought up with.
This is true, but I sure am glad I am here and have the privleges that I have had, and still have. Like freedom. Freedom to speak my mind, freedom to choose my own clothes, free to use the computer, free to vote, free to choose my own husband, etc. How many women would like to have that and still have their culture too? Once they understood it, I am sure most would want it. So, don't make such a close minded statement without backing it up.

The US naval intelligence, chief of Japan desk planned and suggested "8 insults", which should bring Japan into war with the US. President Roosevelt executed this plan immediately and also added some other insults, enraging the Japanese. The most serious one was a total blockade of Japanese oil imports, as agreed between the Americans, British and the Dutch. FDR also declared an all-out embargo against the Japan and forbade them the use of Panama canal, impeding Japan's access to Venezuelan oil.
The Flying Tigers volunteer air group successfully fighting the Japanese in China with some 90 fairly modern P-40Bs was another effective provocation that is not generally acknowledged by historical accounts of World War 2, most of which fail to mention any air combat action prior to 7th December 1941. But at that time the Japanese had already had lost about 100 military aircraft, mostly bombers, to the Tigers. After Pearl Harbor these squadrons were some of the the hardest-hitting ones in the US service.
The attack on Pearl Harbour followed some 6 months later. Having broken the Japanese encryption codes, the Americans knew what was going to happen, when and where, but the president did not dispatch this information to Pearl Harbor. Americans even gave their friends the British 3 Magic decrypting machines which automatically opened encrypted Japanese military traffic. But this same information was not available to the commanders of Hawaii. The movement of the fleet was also visible in the very effective radio direction finding network. Japan had an alliance with Germany, and the Germans upheld their promises by declaring the war against the USA right after the Japanese declaration.
BTW, Japan tried REPEATEDLY to surrender, but "someone" wanted to show-off our posession of the atomic bomb, so we nuked Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This stuff has been mostly declassified, and is now accepted as historical fact to those who would remove the blinders of false patriotism. Don't respond with opionated wisecracks. Do some research with your computed instead of using it to talk shit.

While you're at it Google IG Farbin and get enlightened on how we (AMERICA) funded BOTH sides of WW2. The German Air Force could not have flown without a specific ingrediant in their oil! Oh yeah, they (us) also produced Cyclon-B, which was used to kill millions of innocent Jews and other "undesirables". Seriously, people, the truth is so easy to find these days, do we really have to put up with such reterded comments? Only one in twenty of you are even close.

And "Steve", any clue as to why and how the sinking of the Lusitania came about? I doubt it, from the crap you've already spouted, but for what it's worth, the German High Command even ran an ad in the New York Times, warning any Americans NOT to board, as they would sink the ship if encountered in German-controlled waters. The US govornment quickly dismissed the ad as harmless, and guess what? THE GERMANS SUNK HER, AS PROMISED, and the hold was carrying tons of expolsive munitions!!!!! On a PASSENGER LINER????!!! Like I already said, IDIOTS the lot of ya.

Also:
A U-boat torpedo hit the ocean liner Athenia near Britain with some 1100 passengers, of which 311 were Americans. The sea was calm and only 118 people on board lost their lives. The ship was sunk because it behaved like a military transport, blackened out and zigzagging. This incident wasn't enough to precipitate war, and the Germans also refused to be provoked by several American acts of war. Americans confiscated German merchant ships, and Americans started to support the British with various lend-lease items, US volunteer pilots joined the RAF and some RAF pilots were trained in the US, US gave the British 50 old but usable WW1 destroyers and 20 modern torpedo boats, tanks, light bombers, fighter aircraft like P-40s and so on. American destroyers also escorted the convoys bound to Britain, and attacked German U-boats even far away from those convoys. The US did NOT maintain a neutral stance attitude towards the warring nations.

sounds like you've been watching Zeitgeist or Esoteric Agenda, or maybe both. Good film for the conspiricy theorist in everyone.

My point was that my grandfather liberated Italy and fought to free all of Europe from the oppression that was the Nazi war machine. That's a lot different than the current circumstances in Iraq. As far as Japan goes, they were a hostile nation that had already gone on the offensive against China and had made plans to take over most of the Pacific as well. Pearl Harbor wasn't an "inside job" by FDR to thrust the country into war.. All anyone really knows is that members of his staff knew an attack could be coming, although the specific date of the attack was never revealed. The rest is mere speculation. As for the Lusitania, everyone knows it was also carrying supplies to England during WWI. The Germans knew that if they scuttled it, it would bring the U.S into war, and they did it anyway, thinking the Atlantic would be enough of a buffer to prevent us from changing the tide of the war.

My douchetard comment was directed toward "Your All Idiots" who got the ball rolling with the "fukhead" comment. If that's you, I suggest you do the world and go step in front of a bus numbnuts.

Glad to hear you are enough of a history buff to clear all that up, even though what was previously posted is declassified information! And yes, I have seen Zeitgiest as well as many other conspiracy "theory" docs. As far as saying "you're all idiots of the fukhed comment, i probably said BOTH, so why don't YOU do ME a favor and eat a dick? "The Japanese were already hostile..." Who is the douchetard now faggot? Go vote for Joe the Plumber, I hear he's taking POLICY QUESTIONS now. You sound like a relative of his. Numbnuts.

I have no idea what point it is that you're arguing in that last ramble. My point way back in my initial "granpa's war for freedom" comment is Germany and Japan where both aggressive countries which posed a legitamite threat to the U.S. and the rest of the World as well. FDR needed a direct offense from Japan to convince Congress (and the rest of the American public) to enter the war and he got it with Pearl Harbor. But with the Jackboot of Nazi Germany up all of Europe's ass and half of Africa's, and with Japan exhibiting extreme hostility to China and Southwest Asia, it would have only been a matter of time before America got involved. No such threat existed in Iraq. It was for the oil, plain and simple.

But I will admit you sure showed me with the "numbnuts" and "eat a dick" comments along with the Joe the Plummer comparison. Gee whiz, I guess I better leave this website to intellectual grown-ups like yourself and get back to watching reruns of The Wonder Years.
