To let you know, Pearl Harbor, was a trap set for the Japanese. FDR played the Japanese for fools & lured them into a trap, to get the US involved in
the War, to help stimulate our economy.
The US citizens, didn't want to have anything to do with the War in Europe, after being so heavily involved in WWI, so FDR promised we wouldn't get
involved in WWII.
He lied, or rather manipulated the people of the US. What he did, was to cut off the oil & petroleum supplies of the Japanese in the South Pacific,
knowing the Japanese would see this as a sign of aggression, & retaliate. This wasn't an all out act of War on FDR's part, just something to poke
the hornets nest & provoke the ignorant Japanese into making the first act of "aggression" in the American citizens eyes.
This has been documented for years now, FDR knew about Pearl Harbor months in advance, the Brits told us, the Russians told us, the US Consulate in
Japan told us that the Japanese were practicing bombing runs in a harbor in Japan that was similar to Pearl Harbor.
