The attack on Pearl Harbor was an offensive defense. Japan hoped to sink our navy and soon thereafter, sue for peace. After all, if we had lost our navy, we should have been more receptive to peace.
Their mistake was that their attack was a surprise attack that pissed off the wrong people.
Iran is Persian. If not for buying and copying Western weapons systems, they'd still be using wicker shields and composite bows.
Together with the Iraqi Security Forces, we have also focused on the Special Groups. These elements are funded, trained, armed, and directed by Iran’s Qods Force, with help from Lebanese Hezbollah. It was these groups that launched Iranian rockets and mortar rounds at Iraq’s seat of government two weeks ago, causing loss of innocent life and fear in the capital, and requiring Iraqi and Coalition actions in response.
