    I will say it's incredible. I won't say it's impossible that someone believes this.

    The president-elect nor the outgoing sh1t 4 brains has nothing to do with it. It's years of liberal education, and very little real history being taught that brings people to this type of thinking.

    There has always, and there will always be morons in the world. For example, look at that maggot professor that tweeted that all he wanted for Christmas is white genocide. And he's one of the smart ones.

    I'm afraid a lot of people will believe this, :confused: , is it me getting old or were people always that gullible?

    In fact Japanese were incredibly good and their entire fleet an aircraft made it through the Atlantic and reached Hawaï 20 years before Pearl Harbor was even attacked. Incredible that people are stupid enough to actually believe that.

    Do you actually know what the phrase "white genocide" refers to? It is white supremacist-speak for that horrid evil of miscegenation. You know, like the sitting President of the United States? Speaking of sh1t4 brains, it might help if some people actually got an education and started thinking with their brains instead of with the sh1tty excuse they claim for brains and education...liberal or otherwise.

    That looks like it would fit right in with what some of the posters in the discussion of Day of Deceit over on Amazon are claiming.

    I do wonder if it's a parody or not though. Part of me keeps thinking "no one could be that dumb" but another part of my says "don't be too sure".

    Why didn't they just fly a straight line across China, over Europe, and the US? That way they could refuel at all the airports! Never mind the time warp thing.

    Actually I've never heard the term before, and when I saw the report on the news yesterday I took it at face value, the literal definition. When you pointed it out I looked it up. Really a nasty term in any light. Regardless of the meaning, does anyone really need to tweet such information? Especially on Christmas? What good does it do? Sure free speech and all, but is that necessary? All he really wanted was to be inflammatory, which he got in spades. We have enough problems in society as it is already.

    When I meant "liberal education" it was not the liberal as in the opposite of conservative. I meant it to be the kind of education we have today. Most kids don't know when the War of 1812 started, much less why it was fought, who fought in it, and what happened between the first and last day of the war, much less the campaign that culminated after the war was over.

    Also, there was no need to take this to a personal level. Every American from Day 1 has disagreed with each other on politics, and called presidents, senators, cabinet members and such names for whatever reason they felt necessary. There was no attempt on my part to attack you or anyone else for whatever beliefs they have or who they voted for.

    Time to get back on the topic at hand anyway.

    Didn't the Japanese Prime Minister apologise again for Pearl Harbour just yesterday? Seems the Japanese Prime Minister is being juped too! Thankfully we have historians like this arsehat to straighten out all that misinformation...

    I don't think that he did apologize. He mentioned that Japan would never wage war again, and wars like WW2 are bad things, but stopped short of apologizing for the dastardly sneak attack his county inflicted on US.

    Of course the Chinese (Chicoms) are still torqued up over the Japanese treatment dished out in China between 1931 and 1945. I'm sure that the Koreans, the Philippines, the Malaysians, and everyone else who felt the boot of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere on their necks aren't so giggly either.

    Has the US received any apology? Australia has repeatedly gotten sorry from the Japanese ( I think they want our stuff)...

    Apparently the US was at war for a decade longer than we thought.

    Wouldn't it be faster to have their planes fly over the canals instead of through them? Otherwise, they'd have to wait for water to raise and lower to get through.

    But they needed their carriers, so the shortest route would be through two strongly held enemy bottlenecks.
