Why Pearl Harbor was deception.

  1. I wonder how much longer "historians" will claim that FDR didn't know that the so-called "surprise" attack was coming. FDR did not only sacrifice thousands of soldiers at Pearl Harbor, he also brought about the capture of 85,000 US soldiers in the Phillipines because he gave practically all US tanks and planes manufactured in prewar years to the British .

    It's an absolute fact that FDR provoked Pearl Harbor by:
    1) Ordering the Japanese government to remove their troops from Manchuria;
    2) Imposing an oil embargo on resourceless Japan;
    3) Freezing Japan's economic assets in the U.S.; and 4) moving the entire Pacific Fleet from California to Hawaii.

    Author of "The Day Of Deceit", Robert B. Stinnett.

    The book quoted above has received a lot of praise from historians, yet, there is no outrage in the media.

    "Stinnett provides overwhelming evidence that FDR and his top advisors knew that the Japanese warships were heading towards Hawaii. The heart of this argument is even more inflammatory: Stinnett argues that FDR, who desired to sway public opinion in support of U.S. entry into WWII, instigated a policy intended to provoke a Japanese attack....If Stinnett is right, FDR has a lot to answer for- namely, the lives of those Americans who perished at Pearl harbor, Stinnett establishes almost beyond question that the U.S. Navy could have at least anticipated the attack."

    Here is an interesting timeline showing how FDR led America slow into war. Keep in mind that the Pearl Harbor attack took place at December 7, 1941. Yet, FDR was doing everything he could to provoke both Germany and Japan before that date.

    Pay attention to the events, that took place before the Pearl Harbor attack.


    After Roosevelt had pushed the Japanese against the wall with the oil embargo and the other provocations, the Japanese reaction was assured. Roosevelt had already started an undeclared war against Germany with Lend-Lease, the establishment of military bases in Iceland and reporting the locations of German warships to Churchill. By December 7-11 Hitler was well aware that he was at war with the U.S.A....

    The Japanese were rather brutal with the Chinese, but in hindsight it would have been a lot better to allow them to control China than Mao Tse Tung, who killed tens of millions. Once again, as in eastern and central Europe, an Allied victory meant death or misery for huge numbers of people.
  2. More like - He wanted to enter the war on the side of Russia
  3. In my opinion, FDR hated the Germans and was a great admirer of the British empire. He was a lobyist for war during the years preceding the US entry in the First World War and he never changed his opinion about Germany. Also, his Jewish ancestry caused him to feel a great deal of resentment towards Hitler.

    FDR even knew that Pearl Harbor was coming 14 days in advance and did nothing to stop it, can anything be worse than that? Sacrificing your own troops to advance your own agenda, that was exactly what he did.

    Just as World War I, WW2 was also a war that we entered on false pretenses. 400,000+ brave Americans died believing they were defending freedom, when nothing could be further from the truth.
  4. Very timely......only...what 66 years later?????
  5. FDR stands alone as the only truly bad President of the past century. He was rotten to the core.
  6. Maybe we should concentrate on the present rather then 75 years ago???? j
  7. Unfortunately, yes, but the documents that prove FDR's criminal deeds have only relatively recently been declassified.

    World War II is without a doubt a war that had to be fought, and one that without American's intervention would have been a victory for the bad guys. I do think that FDR knew that the attacks would likely come and did nothing to stop them. He did so because the overwhelming pulbic opinion in America was to stay out of the war, to remain "neutral" and he understood that this was not acceptable, but something dramatic had to happen in order to change the winds in America. Everything is not always neat and pretty when it comes to matters of war and peace.
  9. Why is it that all the anti-us thread starters (probably the same person using aliases, but whateva) want the readers to believe that they are us citizens, by "subtlely" using "we" or "us" in these posts?

    Or has this already been discussed?

    This isn't exactly earth shattering news. Go rent a copy of "tora, tora, tora" a pretty good movie made in the early '70's about Pearl Harbor.
