Pearl Harbor Day
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

December 7, 1941, a day that will live in infamy.

Infamous because the Japanese launched a premptive strike against an American military target, without warning or declaration of war. The Japanese struck first. Outrage.

Fast forward 60 years to the invasion of Iraq, a premptive strike (shock and awe) against a supposed military target, without warning or declaration of war, to prevent deployment of weapons of mass destruction which could not have threatened the United States directly, even if they had existed.

Should this also be an event that lives in infamy? What's the difference? Both military actions were preemptive strikes on behalf of oil, of national interest. Oh. It's us, the good guys and what we do is okay, by definition. When they do it, it's sneaky, unfair, and criminal.

Got it.
