On this date in 1941 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, bringing the United States into World War II. Over 3,500 Americans were killed or wounded in the attack. Today more than 2000 Americans are gathered at Pearl Harbor to mark the 71st anniversary of the “day that will live in infamy.”
When I think about Pearl Harbor (and 9/11/01) I think that our enemies have failed at destroying us from without. Whether they will be able to destroy us from within remains to be seen.
Zilla’s co-blogger Rides a Pale Horse put together this video of remembrance.
Also, be sure to see the post at Gateway Pundit that has a never before published account of what one reporter saw at Pearl Harbor on 12/7/41.
