It was just now, all those years ago.National Geographic has a pretty good overview of the event. It’s worth a visit.

I’m just now taken with the comparison of Pearl to the WTC. Since they’re the only serious attacks this country has ever countinenced on these shores, the comparison seems valid enough.

Here’s what I’m considering; The Democrats of today are now all about telling us that the re-election of George W. Bush was a fearful response.  Does that mean we can expect them at any time, let alone any time soon, to also say that the several re-elections of FDR, following the attack on Pearl, was also fear driven?
