Pearl Harbor Anniversary

Today is the 64th anniversary of the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor base in Hawaii. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought a previously reluctant America into World War II. The U.S. and its allies agreed that they would seek the unconditional surrender of their enemies, principally Japan and Germany. The allies did not set a deadline, not even a flexible deadline. They simply started to do the things that were necessary to turn the tide and to win the war. We could learn a lesson from that today.
