Colorized photographs of the attack on Pearl Harbor (78 years ago today)
Battleship Row photograph taken from a Japanese bomber. You can see the oil from the ships beginning to bellow in the water.

re: Colorized photographs of the attack on Pearl Harbor (78 years ago today)
We didn't start the fight.

But we damn sure finished it.

And that's certainly something to be acknowledged, but not really something to be celebrated. Everything about that war was tragic. Our entire planet was full of evil and death for an entire generation.

I seriously doubt the America of today possesses the conviction or strength to fight a war.

It seems we have forgotten the meaning of the word sacrifice on every level of society.

Unfortunately I think we'll see that tested in my lifetime.

That’s the first thing I thought of.
It’s a Shame that liberals have twisted everyone’s views of Pearl Harbor.

Looking at that last photograph it’s always strange to see scenarios where people are just looking on as other people are literally struggling for their lives. Can be found in countless photos and videos throughout history but it always kind of weirds me out.

These pictures are always amazing to me. We're lucky to always have real images of an event as important as this.


On side note, Dan Carlins new Hardcore History chapters are on the Japanese in WWII and he does a great job of covering Pearl Harbor

Netflix currently has a pretty sweet colorized series covering the major facets of the war.

I've said it before and I will say it again...

We could have a zombie apocalypse and there would be some group of a-holes protesting for "zombie rights".

I mean an actual war. A serious, earth shattering country shaking war.

America lost half a million soldiers in WWII in 3 years.

We had a generation of people who lost their parents. It fundemntally changed how we operate as a country.

We've been in the middle east for what? 20 years? And we've lost maybe 8000?

You cannot compare the Middle Eastern Conflict to an actual war because it doesn't effect 99% of this country ever at all.

You are definitely being dramatic.

It's as if some of you have forgotten that America has been at war for damn near two decades.
