The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Pearl Harbor Anniversary

For John, BLUFIt isn't like we hadn't imposed sanctions on Japan earlier in that year.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Pearl Harbor, back in 1941, when the we were pulled into the world in a forceful way.

Our losses on the Island of Oahu:

  • 2 battleships totally lost
  • 2 battleships sunk and recovered
  • 3 battleships damaged
  • 1 battleship grounded
  • 2 other ships sunk
  • 3 cruisers damaged
  • 3 destroyers damaged
  • 3 other ships damaged
  • 188 aircraft destroyed
  • 159[3] aircraft damaged
  • 2,403 killed
  • 1,178 wounded
As an historic footnote, think about what would have happened if Germany (Nazi Germany, under Adolph Hitler) had not, within a few days, declared war on us.
