Many of our early aircraft carriers had wood decks. Not sure why.

From the Article ...
Now, though, according to Robert Stinnett, author of Simon & Schuster’s Day Of Deceit, we have the proof. Stinnett’s book is dedicated to Congressman John Moss, the author of America’s Freedom of Information Act. According to Stinnett, the answers to the mysteries of Pearl Harbor can be found in the extraordinary number of documents he was able to attain through Freedom of Information Act requests. Cable after cable of decryptions, scores of military messages that America was intercepting, clearly showed that Japanese ships were preparing for war and heading straight for Hawaii. Stinnett, an author, journalist, and World War II veteran, spent sixteen years delving into the National Archives. He poured over more than 200,000 documents, and conducted dozens of interviews. This meticulous research led Stinnet to a firmly held conclusion: FDR knew.

Cheers for that mate, Hoover knew and by the same token never passed it on, you just can't get by that. Who else 'knew' then I'm not so sure of.
But let's also remember, WW2 was not ultimately a, 'conventional' war either, then or now...except for one thing, the people who paid the highest price played no part in it in a scale without fathom.

I don't think a sneak attack that killed thousands is ever a good thing.
It showed a serious lack of honor by the Japanese, which is just a little ironic.

The First and Second World Wars were full of astrology belief and days were chosen to give a focus to events, Even religious days were used as on 6th August 1945 when the Atom Bomb was dropped.
The feast day of the Transfiguration of Christ is 6th August, in simplicity, Jesus climbs up Mount Tabor with a few disciples, when suddenly he was transformed into a blinding white light, so the disciples had to turn away.
Soon after a large cloud appeared, and from the cloud was heard a voice "This is my son, who i love, listen to him".
It probably is the experience that the Japanese had, a bright light, a huge cloud, before their negative photograph was imprinted into the pavement.
I wonder what 33 degree mason and president Harry Truman had in his mind as his "Little Boy" bomb dropped to Earth?
I'm not keen on this type of symbolism, or playing God.

This thread title is pure click bait. Calling Pearl Harbor a thing, a thing that happens, and it being the best, means you could say anything like ATS is one of the best things that could have happened. So comparing war to just any old thing, well I can't agree with that.

With the Masonic symbolism in DC, it’s not really that surprising. FDR himself was said to
Be 33rd degree.
