The Infamous Day.

December 7th in 1941 brought an attack that roused a sleeping giant to a truly righteous war. There was, and still is, little or no arguing against our moral responsibility to engage the Japanese (and through that the Germans) in all-out conventional warfare. It wasn't until 2001 that we entered into a war without a moral argument to be made against it.

The country threw itself full speed and full hearted into WWII and never doubted itself. Hard resolve was not something to be had or not had. It just was. The effects of that war on history will be felt forever, good or bad. But that is not how we judge the merits of WWII. Some events' merits are judged by what caused them and others by what they caused. WWII is the former.
