The Attack on Pearl Harbor Was No Surprise

The statements, views and opinions expressed in this column are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of this site. This site does not give financial, investment or medical advice.

Researchers about the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor know that President Franklin Roosevelt had provoked this Japanese attack to justify America’s entry into World War II. Most Americans were against joining the war, but the attack on Pearl Harbor provided the excuse needed to declare war. The best book on this topic is “Day of Deceit” by former World War II Navy officer Robert Stinnett. The topics he covers are controversial because most people refuse to accept that Roosevelt and top military leaders in Washington DC failed to inform the commanders in Hawaii that a Japanese fleet was coming to attack.

There have been many books and articles written over the years that Roosevelt knew they were going to attack Pearl Harbor so this is nothing new. Truth is and is well known the Americans figured that if they kept pushing the Japanese with embargoes they would attack us. Problem is they figured it would be the US bases in the Phillippines and never gave a thought it could be Pearl Harbor. There are those that claim the US tracked the Japanese fleet all the way from Japan to Hawaii. Not True. The Japanese set up eleborate ruses to fool the… Read more »

You are correct….and the story regarding FDR’s alleged deceit is a very old one that goes back to the hearings where Adm. Husband Kimmel, the Pacific Fleet Commander was scapegoated for the losses suffered on December 7th.
Good Wiki article to start the research:

Inquirer or Enquirer ? Don’t dismiss the whole thing. I’ve found WIKI, in some cases, to be a good to great starting point for research. In some cases, WIKI’s source document is the document that leads me to the resource I need.

I have read that FDR had wanted a partial embargo but Hopkins changed it to a full embargo. It has been said that he had communist leanings and the USSR wanted the US in a war with Japan so they could send the troops protecting the Russian/Japan border west. Check out Venona…
Side note-the japs actually did us a favor by sinking the battleships and letting our carrier admirals move to the fore. The battleship/carrier disagreement carried on in Japan until late in the war.

It seems odd that they knew but didn’t warn the Navy, which could have then been ready for the attack. It seems doubtful a few hours notice would have caused the Japanese to call it off. We still would have entered the war, but in a better position.

He’s right – The notion that carrier-based aircraft would travel thousands of miles, in radio silence, avoiding all shipping lanes, to attack from 270 miles north of Hawaii, was preposterous. Even if Roosevelt had known, he would have been laughed-at, big time.

If Hitler would have listened to his Generals, the war could have been won by the Germans. 1) should have never declared war on Russia, opening up two fronts 2) he should have stopped wasting resources on stupid projects like his railroad of the future and the big gun the size of a building among others. 3) Rommell was his best general. If he ran the war machine, it would have taken many atom bombs to end it in Europe. 4) The Germans spent an enormous about of effort building fortresses in Norway that could have been deployed elsewhere and… Read more »

People need to realize Germany was provoked as well into invading Poland. WW2 history is not what Hollywood, the MSM, and public education have portrayed it. Watch, “Europa: The Last Batttle” and see Pat Buchanan’s, “The Unnecessary War”.

Gen. William “Billy” Mitchell, the leading early promoter of American air power, predicted to a tee the attack on Pear Harbor and in the Philippines in 1924, seventeen years before it occurred. He was court marshaled for that and other brash talk directed at his superiors, then cashiered out of the service for his trouble.

No different than the Gulf of Tonkin incident. I hope he slept well the night that thousands of our navy cadets were slaughtered like sitting ducks.Roosevelt was no saint. He tried to pack the Supreme Court, he refused to help the Jews of Europe even though he had first hand knowledge of the Holocaust, his extreme liberal policies extended the Great Depression…

If he baited, then watched, the Japs attack Pearl Harbor so that it drew us into WWII early enough to save Britain, then it was the most notably good move FDR ever made…maybe the only good one.

The radio triangulation theory falls apart when one considers that the Imperial Fleet was under strict radio silence except for receipt from IJHQ of the “Climb Mount Niitaka” message (code for mission go-ahead) and receipt of the first attack wave’s message, “Tora, Tora, Tora” (code for the achievement of surprise). You cannot triangulate what ain’t transmitting. As an aside, the code wasn’t broken until May 1942. Even then we couldn’t be sure until AF used in the code was positively identified as Midway later that month. Some wacked out imaginations on here. Let me join! I hear we created the… Read more »

There has been no one to question the inbound bomber squadron’s appearance on the new radar screen. The America bomber squadron, from the West Coast (I think Washington state) was due in and took the focus off the japs main body attack squadron. I am sure this was coordinated with the time of the attack, to divert the Army’s attention off the japs massive attack, because the officer in charge told the radar attendees that “it’s a bomber squadron due in from the west coast.” I would question, WHO GAVE THE ORDER TO SEND IN THOSE PLANES AND WHERE DID… Read more »

The Japs purpose for attacking Pearl was to keep the American force away from their oil supply lines in the Western Pacific. A blind man could see it. Did Roosevelt know an attack was going to be launched against American forces? Probably. Roosevelt is a SOB for not saving American lives by pre-alerting Pearl. May he rest in hell, the damn Democrat!

None of this “proves” anything except that after WWI the US foolishly assumed that there could never again be another such conflict and so drastically reduced the size and expense of its military, and what remained suffered abject neglect. They were under-staffed, under-equipped, under-trained and under-maintained, a perfect recipe for an extensive string of errors that lined up just so to lead to an incident such as Pearl Harbor. One evidence of that fact is that when Pearl was attacked there were exactly zero submariners on active duty who ever so much had seen a “live” torpedo fired (training torpedoes… Read more »

This theory fails Occam’s razor. There is no way that the leaders of the USA allowed our primary military striking power to be destroyed. At the time, the battleship was considered the primary weapon of naval supremacy by most navies and naval leaders. They took decades to build and and untold amounts of treasure. The fact is this….there certainly was concern about a Japanese action, but like most western nations, Japan was viewed as a lightweight that could in know way launch a devastating attack across 4000 miles of open ocean while simultaneously striking the Philipines, Wake Island, and the… Read more »

This is reminiscent of 9-11 isn’t it? Presidents have routinely used false flag ops to generate public support for their political machinations that needlessly took the country to war. Lincoln’s false flag op was Fort Sumter. Woodrow Wilson’s was the Lusitania. False flag ops didn’t stop until DJT and the Democrats hate him for it. No war is no profits for their Establishment patrons
