  1. Yeah right happened six months after the Pearl Harbour pretext, the Canadian public and historians had good reasons to have doubts. FDR provoked Japanese and was aware of the imminent attack but did nothing to stop it because he wanted Japanese to attack Pearl Harbour and give Americans an excuse to go to WWII, a war America had no business getting involved in.

  2. One Captain Cyril (curly) Andrews knew the truth, No sub from Japan ever fired a shot, the truth is now lost with time…. Thank you for this classic story reprise
