They're almost gone

The Beeb

The Pearl Harbor Survivors Association said it would disband after this year's landmark commemoration because so few veterans remained.

Those guys made the rest of us who have served since look good. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen.

Probably not the best place to put this next, but...

It was the last assault on US soil until al-Qaeda's attacks of 11 September 2001, another surprise offensive that shocked the US into military action and transformed its strategic outlook.

If Bush had been Preznit on 7 December 1941, he would have declared war on Mexico and told everyone to go shopping. War with Germany would have been out of the question. The Bush Crime Family was making too much money there.

And we should remember that the Pearl Harbor attack was military in nature, while the events of 9-11-01 were criminal. The "shocking the U.S. into military action" was entirely the wrong response.
