America's Side of the Attack on Pearl Harbor
America was the statues quo in the Pearl Harbor attack. They were trying to be 'Neutral'. They were trying to stay out ot the way and letting other people fight it out. They were trying to keep things the same until the Japanese attacked us.
Who was the statues quo in the attack on Pearl Harbor?
Can you be nuetral when there are so many people fighting around us?
You can't. That's why we got involoved in the start of World War II. We don't get pushed around and not fight back. We were trying to keep things the same and to keep people safe. We stand up for our rights and we don't backdown.
