Don't get me wrong. I have always been and will always be a John Lennon fan. But it seems as if hardly anyone cares anymore about what happened that terrible day, a day Truman said would live in infamy. 2,402 personnel were killed and 1,282 were wounded that day. And it was the day that drew us into WWII. Yet it seems to have been forgotten. Imagine...that.

I remember well the night Truman broke into Monday Night Football and announced that Germany had bombed Peal Harbor.

Did we quit then? Hell no!

Smartest guy in the room, he even has the big http://upload.democraticunderground.com/discuss/images/avatars/democrats.gif for DUmmie in his post.

I wonder if Truman would have nuked Germany had he become President earlier, or if the Germans had fought longer.

Didn't care when he got knocked off and still don't care.
