December 7th 1941 – A Vulnerable Nation Stunned By An Unexpected Enemy. Are We Vulnerable Now?

The day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, President Roosevelt appeared before a joint session of Congress and declared,

“Yesterday, December 7, 1941–a date which will live in infamythe United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”

After a brief and forceful speech, he asked Congress to approve a resolution recognizing the state of war between the United States and Japan.

The Attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service upon the United States (a neutral country at the time) against the naval base at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii, just before 08:00, on Sunday morning, December 7, 1941.

Today the Trump Administration has placed our nation in a state of  vulnerability. Around the world Trump’s articulation of “America First” and he desire to make us isolationist has driven wedges between us and our long time global friends, and has given our enemies a reason to want to bring harm to our nation in the midst of a Pandemic health crisis and an economic turn-down.

Question – Are we so stupid that we can’t see the similarities in regards to year 1941 and year 2020? (Some of the contents of this post courtesy of the Chicago Sun-Times-Opinion)
