    Had this link sent to me today, was very interesting and caused me to take a moment to reflect.

    Smile Yes Yamamoto lived in America for a number of years and was well aware of the U.S.

    and its power as far our manufacturing and the presents of large numbers of firearms. His hope at Pearl Harbor was to sucker punch us and win a quick victory.
    Yamamoto said if the war lasted for more than 6 months Japan could not win. In less than 7 months the Japs lost the battle of Midway and were in retreat. The quantity of firearms was note as the reason not to invading California.

    "The right to form militias and possess arms"? Just a tad bit off the mark, as the right or obligation to form a militia was, is, and will remain a function of the individual States.

    And the Emperor of Japan never suggested they invade the US. (As a matter of fact, it seems that since at least 1933 the Emperor had little, if anything, to say about the activities of the Imperial Army or the Imperial Navy. Mostly because the Imperial Army and the Imperial Navy maneuvered to make sure he was never asked what they should or should not do.)

    It's little things like these that cause a loss of credibility.

    stay safe.
