Hello, and welcome to yet another blog post from the Stale Grapes News. Today’s topic is dedicated Pearl Harbor, which was attacked on December 7, 1941, which happened 73 years ago today.
First, a bit of history:
It was during World War II when half the world was fighting against the evils of Nazi Germany. The United States was supporting Britain and France against Germany. But the Germans were not very happy about that, and so were the Japanese. Japan and China were already at war, and Italy supported Germany.
So how did Pearl Harbor happen?
Pearl Harbor was located in Hawaii, and it was a Naval base. But Japan flew its planes over the island and bombed it. Many Sailors and on that island were killed, and the next day, President Franklin Roosevelt declared war Japan. In response, Germany and Italy declared war on the United States, as did Japan.
And the rest, they say, was history.
So, should Pearl Harbor still be a thing?
Yes, it should, as it was one of the reasons why the United States was in World War II.
In conclusion, do YOU think that Pearl Harbor should still be a thing? Please let me know in the comments.
