PostSubject: Never forget December 7th 1941   Wed Dec 07, 2011 12:01 pm

Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, members of the Senate and the House
of Representatives: Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 — a date which will
live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and
deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was at peace with that nation, and, at the solicitation
of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor
looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one
hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American
island of Oahu, the Japanese Ambassador to the United States and his
colleague delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a
recent American message. And while this reply stated that it seemed
useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained
no threat or hint of war or of armed attack.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack
was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the
intervening time the Japanese Government has deliberately sought to
deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope
for continued peace.
The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands
has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. I
regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In
addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas
between San Francisco and Honolulu.
Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam.
Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.
Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island.
And this morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.
Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout
the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday and today speak for
themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their
opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and
safety of our nation.
As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.
But always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught
against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this
premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might
will win through to absolute victory.
I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will
not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make it very
certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.
Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.
With confidence in our armed forces—with the unbounding determination of
our people—we will gain the inevitable triumph—so help us God.
I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly
attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7th, 1941, a state of war has
existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire

It just might not work how it was designed to.

I watched a video of Pearl Harbor today in school. Here is FDR's speech.
