Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941 The Only Color Film of the Attack

"Yesterday, December 7, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan." 
- President Franklin Roosevelt 

"To have the United States at our side was to me the greatest joy. Now at this very moment I knew the United States was in the war, up to the neck and in to the death. So we had won after all!... Hitler's fate was sealed. Mussolini's fate was sealed. As for the Japanese, they would be ground to powder."
-- English Prime Minister Winston Churchill

"History demonstrates that previous military drawdowns invited aggression by our enemies. After World War I, America drew down forces until the U.S. Army had fewer than 100,000 men in uniform. That weakness invited Nazi aggression in Europe and the imperial Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor.
- Frank Gaffney

"TO, TO TO" (short for totsugeki, meaning "charge," indicating the attack had begun)
"Tora-Tora-Tora!" (indicating surprise was achieved).
-- Japanese Commander Mitsuo Fuchida

"The fate of the Empire rests on this enterprise. Every man must devote himself totally to the task in hand."
-- Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, Commander in Chief of the Japanese Navy, Dec. 7, 1941

"A threatening [political] opposition was gathering over the head of this man [Roosevelt]. He guessed that the only salvation for him lay in diverting public attention from home to foreign policy... He was strengthened in this by the Jews around him... The full diabolical meanness of Jewry rallied around this man and he stretched out his hands. Thus began the increasing efforts of the American President to create conflicts... For years this man harbored one desire -- that a conflict should break out somewhere in the world... The fact that the Japanese Government, which has been negotiating for years with this man, has at last become tired of being mocked by him in such an unworthy way, fills us all, the German people, and all other decent people in the world, with deep satisfaction... As a consequence of the further extension of President Roosevelt's policy, which is aimed at unrestricted world domination and dictatorship, the U.S.A. together with England have not hesitated from using any means to dispute the rights of the German, Italian and Japanese nations to the basis of their natural existence ... in these historic times, the existence or non-existence of the nations, is being decided perhaps forever."
-- German Chancellor Adolf Hitler, referring to the Pearl Harbor attack in a Dec. 11, 1941 speech in the Reichstag
