Americans had broken the Japanese codes! We know that American Intelligence decoded messages sent from Tokyo to the Japanese Embassy in DC before the Japanese ministers did on Sunday December 7, 1941. We also know that the main intention of the Japanese military was to destroy the American aircraft carriers. Japanese spies in Honolulu informed Tokyo that the American aircraft carriers were in port. The Japanese, therefore, committed to the attack. Then, the Americans pulled the carriers out of Pearl. 'Coincidence'?
There were other facts that lead me and others to conclude that FDR baited the Japanese so as to have the US enter the war against them and Hitler's Nazi Germany. Americans were opposed to entering foreign wars until the events in Hawaii exactly 71 years ago.
Synchronism: 12/7/12 07:04 I awoke on this Anniversary of Pearl Harbor to hear of 7.3 Earthquake off coast of Japan
On Monday 3/4/13 while in a thrift store, I 'coincidentally' found a copy of the book 'Day Of Deceit - The truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor' by Robert B. Stinnett (The Free Press, 2000). I haven't finished it yet, but I can go ahead and highly recommend it to those who are interested in this subject. Stinnett has done extensive research which is well documented in this 386 page book. There is NO DOUBT the FDR and his closest military advisors not only expected the attack, "it was deliberately provoked through an eight-step program devised by the Navy".
