    yea, December 7th 2003 marks the 62nd anniversary of the Japanese Attack on PEARL HARBOR, please tell me you remember Dec. 7th? You have to... :doh: 8:00 A.M., Sunday morning, December 7, 1941.

    The ships destroyed... (not a complete list however)
    USS Arizona (BB39) Battleship
    USS West Virginia (BB48) Battleship
    USS California (BB44) Battleship
    USS Oklahoma (BB37) Battleship
    USS Nevada (BB36) Battleship
    USS Pennsylvania (BB38) Battleship (in dry dock #1)
    USS Tennessee (BB43) Battleship
    USS Maryland (BB46) Battleship
    USS Vestal (AR4) Repair ship
    USS Neosho (AO23) Oiler
    USS Detroit (CL8) Light cruiser
    USS Raleigh (CL7) Light cruiser
    USS Utah (AG16) Target Ship

    USS Cassin Destroyer
    USS Downes Destroyer
    USS Shaw Destroyer
    USS Ogala

    USS San Francisco

    A total of twenty-nine Japanese aircraft were shot down by ground fire and U.S pilots from various military installations on O'ahu. I forgot this is HONDASWAP, and hondas are japanese cars.... just my tribute to history. I love history. It's FUN!

    Canadians are the bomb....i've never met one I didnt like.

    I guess yeah, since it didnt happen to me and I had no family in pearl harbor, I can forgive their actions. Even though Teddy had sent a note stating he wanted to come to an agreement rather than go to war to the emporer and it was never delivered. <_< :p

    my 10th grade english teacher's husband was on some ship, i cant remember the name but for some reason i wanna say washington. well she said they were on there way to pearl habor but last minute they were told to turn around and not go. This was before the japanese attacked. She said that somone knew there was going to be attack so they turn her husbands ship around.

    or, did it suck that we stopped trading with them because the US didn't belive in their communist style of government, and thus put them into a recession and depression almost 2-fold of what our great depression was like. there was NO money, no food, and something had to be done.

    It was inevitble.

    The same shit happened with cuba 30 years later.

    notice, both fucking republican presidents at the time instituted the embargos... and the dem's had to come through a clean it up.
