All the news from the peanut gallery and where all the nasty trash talk fails miserably.

Lest I continue

My complacent way,

Help me to remember

Somehow out there

A man died for me today.

As long as there be war,

I then must

Ask and answer

Am I worth dying for?

i heard part of an interview with a Pearl Harbor survivor yesterday. And at one point he said, "All of my life people have told me that they thank me for my service. I always tell them that you are worth serving for".

it made me think about that. he was obviously very old and there is no telling how many times he had that short exchange. But it occurred to me that no matter who it was that said it, that was his answer "you are worth serving for".

One of the great mysteries of the December 7th, 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Did a Japanese midget submarine actually penetrate US Navy defenses and participate in the attack on US ships? Photo taken by an attacking Japanese aircraft and I believe found after the war in the Japanese archives.

They're not sure, but so far they haven't really accounted for one of the subs, so I guess it's possible.

If you looked closely at the photo, there appears to be 2 torpedo wakes. They assume one missed. Look at the 3rd ship from the bottom of the photo- the one on the outside (USS West Virginia). You can see the explosion just as it starts to appear with a concussive wave toward the left.

"The commencement of war between the US and the Japanese Empire will begin with a surprise attack on Hawaii on a calm, quite Sunday morning". Quoted by General Billy Mitchell, 1925.

In his 1925 book, “Winged Defense,” Mitchell detailed how Japan might attack Hawaii — starting at 7:30 a.m. with 60 Japanese pursuit planes destroying hangars and planes on the ground at Schofield Barracks, followed by 100 bombers striking Pearl Harbor’s naval base.
https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/spe ... /91625442/

It was was inspired by a book and also based on a previous successful attack by the British on the Italians in 1940.
Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto conceived the Pearl Harbor attack and Captain Minoru Genda planned it. Two things inspired Yamamoto’s Pearl Harbor idea: a prophetic book and a historic attack. The book was The Great Pacific War, written in 1925 by Hector Bywater, a British naval authority. It was a realistic account of a clash between the United States and Japan that begins with the Japanese destruction of the U.S. fleet and proceeds to a Japanese attack on Guam and the Philippines. When Britain’s Royal Air Force successfully attacked the Italian fleet at Taranto on November 11, 1940, Yamamoto was convinced that Bywater’s fiction could become reality.

What's amazing he predicted they would follow up with an attack on US forces in the Philippines within 24 hours. Dead spot on 16 years before it happened that way.
