Pearl Harbor - 71 Years Ago Today

71 years ago Today, a day that lives in "infamy" - the U.S. was attacked at Pearl Harbor, leading to our entry into WWII.  Now the Japanese and Germans are ALLIES. The "Marshall Plan" that rebuilt Europe is credited with this transformation. McArthur did the same in Japan. 

We've been watchin Netflix' "The Last Days of World War II." Wow, had it not been to the A-bomb, the invasion of Japan would have cost another 1 million American lives. Cities in ruin, they still refused to surrender until faced with the ultimate power.

Where are our visionaries like George Marshall today? 
Afghanistan remains one of the most corrupt countries in the world followed closely by Iraq. Where they worth $2 TRILLION dollars that could have been spent rebuilding America?

Food for thought as we salute our veterans on this historic day...
