Apparently there's not been a thread about this before - who knew?
...a day that will live in infamy.
Interestingly enough, the topic <does> surface every so often as an issue to club America with, for having the inhumanity to use atomic bombs - TWICE - in order to bring the war to an end. Or when civil libertarian types (though a bit more antagonistic and less informed than myself) bring up internment camps.
Even more interestingly, the topic of actual rationale for internment, or of Japanese war atrocities, are never dealt with. I happen to be reading a book that brings up the former, and was already aware of the latter thanks to my military hobbies.
Is anyone here aware of <those> parts of the historical background?
