Roosevelt Knew About Pearl Harbor Before it Happened

"The official history of that event is that it was a "sneak attack" precipitated by war-crazed Japanese militarists, and that the totally unprepared Americans – kept from arming themselves by evil "isolationists" in Congress and the Republican party – were caught completely by surprise.

.....There is, however, one big problem with this official history: it’s a lie."

Greetings Mike!

We don't know for certain how true the assertions of Mr. Stinnett are, since he claims that after he published his book, the US government reclassified much of the material he used to back up his argument.

Nonetheless, if true, is it really that surprising? Isn't the game of many politicians in nearly every country, subterfuge and lying? Regarding time, we live in the present, but looking at it backwards, would it have been better for the Americans if they had never gotten involved in a war in the Pacific? Quite possibly.

Globally, though what would have happened? What would have happened to the Chinese, Koreans, Filipinos, Russians, Australians, etc.?

For example, when one looks at the Doolittle raid, for even Japanese subject killed, the Japanese military retaliated by killing roughly 5,000 Chinese civilians. Who would want to live under a system like that?

Would being a foreign, or even Japanese, subject to the Japanese Empire have been very good? I don't know with 100% certainty, but I would tend to believe no.

For those who were fed the goberment line all their lives with no other alternative viewpoint, I'd say Yes. I'd go so far as to say it's all very Shocking, even. Doubly-more-so for those who lived in that time period.

After all, the Philippine/unitedstate war was a loong time ago and it was always taught very fuzzily, or so it seems.
So it was once very hard to catch on to what's what.

The internet really is the new Gutenberg Press.
