Imagine the US leaving Hawaii when it was a territory, to the Japanese. Compare the Taliban to the Japanese whose military had murdered between 100,000 and 200,000 helpless Chinese military prisoners and civilians and the rape of 10s of thousands of Chinese women during the 1937 Rape of Nanking which failed to immediately shift military policy. The attack on Hawaii completely decimated the US Pacific Fleet.

Recall the famous quote, “Those that forget the past are doomed to repeat it”. Taliban’s (Japan’s) process of expansion has put it on a collision course with the US particularly, in relation to China. Pay attention to China’s naval build up in the South China Sea and the future of Taiwan. Heed the conduct of its little known cyberwar against the US and other countries.

May those servicemen and women who were murdered and will be murdered in Kabul rest in peace as, hopefully, the sailors in the Arizona may be. MAY THE PARENTS OF SONS AND DAUGHTERS MURDERED IN KABUL FIND SOLACE, PEACE, COMFORT AS, HOPEFULLY, THE PARENTS OF THOSE LOST IN THE ARIZONA AND ELSEWHERE IN OAHU MAY HAVE. PRAY FOR THEM.

God Bless America and, “Lest we forget”, those men and women who defend its liberty. “For those who have fought for it, freedom has a taste the protected will never know”.
