The Right to Fury

Sixty-five years ago today, the Empire of Japan attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, then a U.S. protected territory. The attack was first condemned by the United States, then in time came to be so commonly regarded as an immoral act that even Japan agreed that the timing and method of the attack were unfortunate. Over 2,400 Americans died in that attack, mostly servicemen. The Pearl Harbor has generally been regarded as a valid cause for the U.S. entry into World War 2, where almost three hundred thousand Americans died. The Democrats and some Republicans led the fight to end the Fascist threat.

On September 11, 2001, over three thousand Americans, mostly civilians, died in attacks by Middle Eastern terrorists. Yet in the wars that followed to eradicate the cause of those attacks, Jihadist terror, the Democrats and some Republicans have led the effort to appease the Jihadist threat.

Do not forget.
