It looks like seventy years or so, has at least changed the face of warfare strategies and tactics. Now we have stateless entities being armed with reasonably destructive weapons, and striking us with seeming impunity. We have had US airline vehicles used as missiles, against a major US city, murdering thousands of US civilians. We have had hundreds of US Marines murdered/maimed in their barracks buildings, and we have had US diplomatic facilities attacked, and US State Department personnel murdered.
Arguably, Pearl Harbor "happened" partially, because of very poor internal communications, complacency, underestimating the enemy and incompetent defense/intelligence operations. IMO, we could substitute the names Beirut, 9/11 and Benghazi for "Pearl Harbor" in the previous sentence and still be correct.
WHEN ARE WE GOING TO START TO PAY ATTENTION TO LESSONS PAINFULLY INFLICTED ON US!?
