December 7, 1941:

The Attack On Pearl Harbor

© 2010 by Robert C. Aldridge

Pearl Harbor: A Day that will Live in Infamy Compiled by Robert C. Aldridge.   Political leaders have many motives for going to war. American citizens are usually reluctant to take that step until some catastrophic event charges their emotions. In this essay I will discuss the triggering events of World War II-- and illustrate how those events were used to create an overwhelming pro-war atmosphere. This event could have been stopped or mitigated but our country’s leader at the time, President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR), chose to allow the Pearl Harbor attack to happen in order to create intensified public support for entering World War II. It seems unbelievable that a political leader could allow such a cataclysmic event to occur. 2,403 Americans died at Pearl Harbor. Yet evidence of prior knowledge is monumental.

     For the last 40 or more years I have randomly read published books and articles on whether the US should have fought all of its many wars.  Perhaps William Blum’s 1995 Killing Hope was the major impetus.  For several years I have not believed any of our wars were necessary, except for WWII; but a dozen years ago I began to doubt WWII in the Pacific.   I am not an historian of that part of WWII , nor have I ever made a large search of publications on the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor, but for some twenty or so years, I have watched for publications critical of the “surprise attack” thesis and supportive of the colonial war approach, and each year I found more--this year two more books. 

     Now today I less believe WWII in Europe was necessary.   I am collecting studies on the subject, and am reading David Swanson’s new book, Leaving World War II Behind.

     If you wish to work for peace, then you should, in at least two ways:  1) reject the myths and propaganda promoting US wars, such as our “good wars” and “US exceptionalism,” 2) embrace the evidence against war in general and US wars specifically—the deceit employed to begin each one, the slaughter that ensued-- one after the other indefensible and drenched in horror.  That is, actually act upon the motto of the University of Arkansas: Veritate Duce Progredi, to advance with truth as our leader.

      I am optimistic:  I’ll estimate that only 49% of our populace likes the wars or the war makers and the Security State that promulgates them.  So let’s tell the truth about our warfare nation.
