From abcnews.com, this was written in reference to Bush’s recent tour of South-East Asia:
In Hawaii, Bush was to tour Pearl Harbor and participate in a wreath-laying ceremony at the USS Arizona Memorial. The president will pay tribute to those who fell and draw parallels between the victims of Sept. 11 and the Dec. 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor attack.
That’s right, the Japanese attacked Hawaii not as a strategic jump-off point to attack the mainland United States during WWII, but simply to invoke terror into the hearts of Americans and to disrupt our economy. Pearl Harbor was a military base, not a port, correct?
Did I read to much into this sentence? 🙂
