    In my opinion Japan attacking Pearl Harbor’s United States military bases was because they thought if they just declared war to United States they would lose the battle. They wanted a surprise attack to get ahead of the US. But they forgot the United States is big and has a lot of resources to make weapons and of mass destruction and a huge population to fight back at them. Japan made a mistake that they paid with the lose of many of their own people.

    I generally have never liked the idea of war but when Japan took away all those lives, I thought about the families that had to suffer from all the losses. I believe in justice for those people and that sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to so you can prevent it from happening again in future. I don’t agree with war but I completely understand why Roosevelt asked congress to declare it. I can’t imagine living in that time zone and having no one respond to something so gruesome.
