    In all honesty I had to think about the date to remember. As more and more of the people who were alive on dec 7th 1941 (and old enough to remember it) are dying it will become less and less significant in the eyes of the general populace.

    edit by Govtcheez: If you're "not trying to start a conversation that gets locked", it's a lot easier to just not post, you moron.

    edit by EvBladerunnervE: I only included the disclaimer to discourage people from going "OMFG anti-american pig, how dare you say that Pearl Harbor could of been prevented if the military didn't scrap the plans for building a radar transmission station", hoping that there could be a "thread within a thread" posting format.

    With you, I probably should have assumed, but c'mon - some of the people here probably have no idea. My bad, sorry.

    > if the military didn't scrap the plans for building a radar transmission station

    Seriously, shut the hell up.
