In a parallel universe, Pearl Harbor did not occur. The Japanese did not drop bombs over the naval base. Thus, World War II was not initiated. Millions of lives were saved. Unfortunately, this was not the case. On the bright side, our civilization has since advanced and is now approaching global harmony.
Why Did Pearl Harbor Happen?
The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike conducted by theImperial Japanese Navy against the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor,Hawaii, on the morning of December 7, 1941 (December 8 in Japan). The attack led to the United States’ entry into World War II.
The attack was intended as a preventive action in order to keep the U.S. Pacific Fleetfrom interfering with military actions the Empire of Japan was planning in Southeast Asia against overseas territories of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the United States. There were simultaneous Japanese attacks on the U.S.-heldPhilippines and on the British Empire in Malaya, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
The Attack on Pearl Harbor
The attack came as a profound shock to the American people and led directly to the American entry into World War II in both the Pacific and European theaters. The following day (December 8), the United States declared war on Japan. Domestic support for non-interventionism, which had been strong, disappeared. Clandestine support of Britain (for example the Neutrality Patrol) was replaced by active alliance. Subsequent operations by the U.S. prompted Germany and Italy to declare war on the U.S. on December 11, which was reciprocated by the U.S. the same day.
There were numerous historical precedents for unannounced military action by Japan. However, the lack of any formal warning, particularly while negotiations were still apparently ongoing, led President Franklin D. Roosevelt to proclaim December 7, 1941, “a date which will live in infamy“.
Why Can’t We Just Live In Harmony
Society has been brainwashed to believe that there is not enough to go around. The 10% of the population which owns 90% of the Earth’s wealth gave us that idea. It is up to us to realize our potential to create our circumstances, build our future, and achieve financial prosperity and true freedom.
