How Overt Does The Attack Have To Be?

81 years ago today the United States experienced a sneak attack on its naval base at Pearl Harbor Hawaii. The next day Congress declared war on the perpetrators. December 7, 1941 wasn’t the last time that the United States was blatantly attacked; but December 8, 1941 was the last time it declared war on the perpetrator of said attack. While I won’t diminish my respect for the rank and file of the Greatest Generation, their leaders weren’t up to the standards of the masses and today it’s even worse. It will be worth your time to read on!
