The title of this thread may be provocative but it should not be nearly as provocative as what is disclosed below. This should make any good, moral American angry. If you think damning lies by our government is something new, think again. We need to look no further than the administration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Many people have asked through the years whether he wanted the Japanese to attack Pearl Harbor, after reading the book and what is in the link below there should be no more questioning, the answer is: yes!

Edited by historian George Nash, Freedom Betrayed: Herbert Hoover’s History of the Second World War and Its Aftermath is a searing indictment of FDR and the men around him as politicians who lied prodigiously about their desire to keep America out of war, even as they took one deliberate step after another to take us into war.

Inside the government was a powerful faction led by Prime Minister Prince Fumimaro Konoye that desperately did not want a war with the United States.

The “pro-Anglo-Saxon” camp included the navy, whose officers had fought alongside the U.S. and Royal navies in World War I, while the war party was centered on the army, Gen. Hideki Tojo and Foreign Minister Yosuke Matsuoka, a bitter anti-American.

On July 18, 1941, Konoye ousted Matsuoka, replacing him with the “pro-Anglo-Saxon” Adm. Teijiro Toyoda.

The U.S. response: On July 25, we froze all Japanese assets in the United States, ending all exports and imports, and denying Japan the oil upon which the nation and empire depended.

• 8/28: Japanese ambassador presents letter from PM Konoye asking to meet Mr. Roosevelt, but keep it secret
• 9/03: Konoye letter was leaked to ‘Herald-Tribune’
• 9/06: Konoye met with US Ambassador Grew, told him he agreed with America’s four principle demands – No response.
• 9/29: Grew sent prayer to Mr. Roosevelt asking him to not less chance of peace die
• 9/30: Grew wrote Washington: “Konoye’s warship is ready waiting to take him to Honolulu, Alaska or anyplace designated by the President”. – No response
• 10/16: Prime Minister Konoye’s cabinet fell
• November: US intercepted two new offers from Japan; A) End China war and occupation of Indochina, B) modus vivendi where no side would make another move. – Both were rejected
• 11/25: Meeting of Mr. Roosevelt’s war council, Secretary of War Henry Stimson’s notes said: “The question was how we should maneuver them (the Japanese) into… firing the first shot without allowing too much danger to ourselves.” Navy Secretary Frank Knox had wrote, “We can wipe the Japanese off the map in three months.”

Think of all that could have been avoided if Mr. Roosevelt just simply agreed to meet PM Konoye, not halted trade with Japan (after they sacked an anti-American), and allowed Japan to end that war right then with honor. Instead he wanted war, he wanted blood, and as a consequence a nation was ravaged, had atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki killing thousands, the fall of China to Mao Zedong, a war in Korea and Viet Nam, and now the rise of a Communist China to near superpower status.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt deserves to be damned for his actions, not praised. The man was an international war criminal, liar, mass murderer, and sociopath.

I believe it, but was he even more brutal than the Japanese were at the time?

Not to mention the stories of the Japanese codes being broken and the fore knowledge of the Pearl Harbor Attack stories and the Great Depression and wonderful New Deal package, a central government based on Fascist Socialism, and the Gold Confiscation order. Yea he was one of the greats.

Of course they knew pearl harbour was going to be attacked, the same as they knew the twin towers were going to be attacked. Both events served their purpose perfectly..... Are you shocked that your leaders past and present could be so cold hearted... realy?
