Remembering Pearl Harbor, 66 years later

Source:  The PatriotPost

“December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan… Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory… With confidence in our armed forces—with the unbounded determination of our people—we will gain the inevitable triumph—so help us God.” — Franklin D. Roosevelt, a Democrat far removed from today’s crop of defeatists

Would we have the will to fight to “absolute victory” today?  I would like to think that we would but I am not so sure sometimes.  I don’t like being so pessimistic but my confidence in the resolve of our people as a whole is a bit shaken.
