Poor analogy, Andre. Roosevelt knew about the impending Pearl Harbor attack and let it happen since he was looking for an excuse to go to war. He even moved his new, modern ships out of harbor to keep then safe, and left the old WWI-vintage ships, and their crews, as sacrificial lambs for the slaughter.
Are you another one, like Dear Hillary, who is champing at the bit, hoping for lots more “confrontation”? If a nice war breaks out, will you be first to volunteer at the local recruiting office? Good for you.
