I am sorry to hear that you have lost loved ones in these events. No offence, but the analogy you gave between these events and that of a parent that lets their child play on a busy road is very poor.
I think it's the op's attempt to reverse engineer American History.
One tale that my grandfather told many times to me growing-up, was that America allowed her own ships to be bombed during WWII; giving her the 'green-light' to enter the war.

I did not loose loved ones at Pearl Harbour; many of my family were WWII veterans though- it was a comment to mark respect to service personnel (LEST WE FORGET)-which is commonly used in memory of WWI Australian veterans.
Anyway Dark Ghost, how would you voice the analogy of this then?
