Bush Links December 7, 1941 With 9/11

Chris Matthews Screams That There Were No "Close Operational Ties" Between Osama Bin Ladin and Hirohito

Found on Free Republic:

Today we mark the anniversary of a fateful day in American history. On December the 7th, 1941, our peaceful nation awoke to an attack plotted in secret and executed without mercy. The strike on Pearl Harbor was the start of a long war for America β€” a massive struggle against those who attacked us and those who shared their destructive ambitions.

Fortunately for all of us, a great generation of Americans was more than equal to the challenge. Our nation pulled together and despite setbacks and battlefield defeats, we did not waver in freedom's cause.

With courage and determination, we won a war on two fronts: We liberated millions, we aided the rise of democracy in Europe and Asia, we watched enemies become allies, and we laid the foundation of peace for generations.

On September the 11th, 2001, our nation awoke to another sudden attack. In the space of just 102 minutes more Americans were killed than we lost at Pearl Harbor. Like generations before us, we accepted new responsibilities, and we confronted new dangers with firm resolve.

Like generations before us, we're taking the fight to those who attacked us β€” and those who share their murderous vision for future attacks. Like generations before us, we've faced setbacks on the path to victory β€” yet we will fight this war without wavering. And like the generations before us, we will prevail.
