Topic - Pearl Harbor
Pearl Harbor, or Pu'uloa, is a lagoon harbor on the island of Oi, west of Honolulu. Much of the harbor and surrounding lands is a United States Navy deep-water naval base. It is also the headquarters of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. The attack on Pearl Harbor by the Empire of Japan on December 7, 1941, brought the United States into World War II. - Source: Wikipedia

September 11 was the moment when history finally caught up to America, that sparkling bright day when we lost whatever innocence still remained. Living in McLean, Va., and working as a military analyst for NBC News, I was no better prepared than anyone else. Ironies abounded: Beginning on a snowy morning in February, I had regularly taped running commentaries for an MSNBC documentary (remember them?) with a working title of "Attack on Manhattan." Focused on the unlikely idea of terrorists attacking the United States, it eerily predicted an attack on the twin towers and was scheduled to air later in September.
Last week, Secretary of State John F. Kerry said, "We are not going to war ... . We will be able to hold [Syrian President] Bashar Assad accountable .... in a very limited, very targeted, very short-term effort." This may be the desire of the U.S. government, but who's to say what the fallout from such an "effort" will be ("John Kerry says limited action in Syria not war," Web, Sept. 4)?
John Koster is not the first author to lay the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor largely at the feet of Soviet agents. He has, however, connected major pieces of that Soviet activity within the United States in significant detail.
President Obama apparently has forgotten the immortal words of the old Rough Rider. When Teddy Roosevelt said, "Speak softly, but carry a big stick," things may not have been as scientifically and militarily advanced as they are today, but common sense was just as essential to our national survival.
Persistent activity by Chinese cyberspies reveals just how vulnerable America remains to digital security breaches. In the cyberworld, the playing field has leveled, and the United States, without the fortified cyberprotections to match the threat, remains target No. 1.
Today, we'll take a break from politics to remember the men and women who have served in America's military. Today is their day. If you see a soldier, just say thanks. It's that easy.
When the U.S. government fails to protect its citizens, we must determine why. Such failures can erode public faith in the government's abilities and diminish public trust in its leaders.

They were more than angry, those days when Adolf Hitler devastated Europe while America fretted about non-intervention.
Maj. Thomas Griffin, a navigator during the historic Doolittle Raid of World War II who later survived nearly two years in a Nazi prison camp, died Tuesday at a Veterans Administration nursing home in Cincinnati. He was 96 and is survived by two sons.
