The debate over why we should or shouldn’t have gone to war in World War 2 is understandable. Hitler posed a major threat–could he have invaded outside of Europe and/or become a tyrannical dictator of the continent had we not intervened? It’s possible.
However, there is more than enough evidence to begin a debate on the subject and acquire a skeptical eye to the statements and actions of our government. If they faked one attack, could they have faked others?

It was described by President Franklin D.Roosevelt as “a date that will live in infamy”, a day on which the slaughter of 2,400 US troops drew America into Second World War and changed the course of history.
Now, on the 70th anniversary of Japan’s devastating bombardment of the US Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbour, Hawaii, evidence has emerged showing that President Franklin D.Roosevelt was warned three days before the attack that the Japanese empire was eyeing up Hawaii with a view to “open conflict.”
“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.” -then Senator Barack Obama, December 2007.
President Obama’s military adventure in Lybia is an incredibly arrogant, Constitutionally ignorant and thoroughly offensive move by our President. Allowing a man (yes, Mr. President you’re still just a guy in a suit) to goto war at his discretion violates every principle of limited government and is a shameless affront to The American Way.
Obama’s attack–excuse me, liberation–on Lybia was launched without a “check or balance” on his power. It was authorized from start to finish by Barry Soetoro, oops President Barack Obama. This should be am impeachable offense.
If you believe that the need to go was so urgent please note that after Pearl Harbor we still managed to assemble Congress in 24 hours and VOTE before sending our brave men and women into the brutal and dangerous chaos of war. I seriously doubt this was as urgent a cause….
