December 7, 2023, is yet another anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941. Many see it as a day of solemn remembrance while others use it to degredate the country. Franklin Roosevelt would notably call the 7th of December "a date which will live in infamy," a scripted response to something he knew was about to happen. Roosevelt spoke of the impending Japanese attack as fulfilling “two of the most important requirements of our policy.” He added, “what I don’t know, can’t hurt me and I cannot understand messages at a distance.” Secretary of War Henry Stimson also wrote weeks prior that the goal was how to “maneuver them into the position of firing the first shot without too much danger to ourselves.” Few know that Roosevelt cut off 90% of Japan’s petroleum imports in 1940 after they signed the Tripartite Pact with Germany and Italy - out of fear of US involvement in the war. When they attempted to find additional fuel, all Japanese assets were frozen in the Untied States. Roosevelt, under neutrality, then sent war ships and ammunition to Britain, while authorizing attacks on German boats. The Council on Foreign Relations was largely behind these policies. Roosevelt went so far as to remove Admiral James O. Richardson from command for refusing to compromise the Pacific fleet. The U.S. then ignored Australian warnings, British warnings, German warnings, and a Purple code instructing Japanese to evacuate the Washington embassy and destroy documents. Even Winston Churchill said, “I can assure you that their goal is the fleet in Hawaii, at Pearl Harbor.” Inexperienced radar operators were also stationed at Opana Point in Oahu, who misidentified Japanese planes as American planes which happened to be scheduled to arrive at the same time of the attack. The Pearl Harbor attack was provocation for war, as was the sinking of the Lusitania, Gulf of Tonkin event, babies in incubators, and the events around the current Ukraine-Russia conflict. In the PNAC document, Neo-cons had famously called for “revolutionary change” in the U.S., and beloved it could not be brought about without a “catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.” President Bush not only said it was the “Pearl Harbor of the 21st century,” but invoked the Axis of Evil trope while the military ran drills to confuse radar operators. Now we know for certain the recent October 7, 2023, Israel attack was allowed to happen, insider trading was conducted (as with 911 and airline stocks), and the event was referred to as Israel’s 911.
