    Dad... This is for you and all of the buddies you lost on the USS Arizona. RIP Pops and I'm thinking of you and all of the others who lost their lives on this day.

    I saw on NBC this morning that the Pearl Harbor survivors' group is disbanding at the end of the year because so many have died or are in bad health.

    We must make sure that they are always, always remembered.

    We should remember Pearl Harbor and the people who perished there but, at the same time, we should remember it in the light of its proper historical perspective; not colored by revisionist history as an "act of terrorism".

    Absolutely. War is war, and terrorism is not war.

    Not trying to 'split-hairs' on the def. of terrorism, however;

    Terrorism is the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.

    FBI Definition
    The attack on Pearl Harbor was not war, but resulted in war...just as the attack's on Sept. 11, 2001 resulted in the (undeclaired) war on terror by Pres. Bush and others.
