Today’s hot topic: Remember Pearl Harbor?


YESTERDAY was the 78th anniversary of the Japanese attack on America at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Never forget, they say. But how many remember? The EU’s leaders? Given the oft-stated purpose for the bloc’s existence, they should. Their dismissive attitude to NATO, and less than respectful attitude to the United States in the person of its President, suggest they care little for the sacrifices of the past.

The day after Pearl Harbor, 78 years ago today, President Franklin D Roosevelt called the attack ‘a date which will live in infamy’ and said: ‘Always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us.’ Within an hour of the speech, Congress passed a formal declaration of war against Japan, officially bringing the US into World War II.

Has America’s support and friendship been honoured? Should it be? Watch the Roosevelt speech and decide.
