Infamy

"Pearl Harbor made possible America’s transmogrification, under Franklin Roosevelt’s dishonest leadership, from a republic into a global empire," writes Patrick Foy, noting, "Nothing remotely like that had been contemplated by Jefferson, Washington, Madison, or John Adams" — Did FDR Engineer Pearl Harbor?

Motive? "Only by deliberately cornering Japan and getting it to attack first could Roosevelt galvanize his home front, silence 'the isolationists,' and rescue the British Empire and Soviet Union."

I think Mr. Foy is a bit too critical of FDR. FDR had offered his Pol Pot economics style New Deal as an alternative to the Fed friendly Republicans' let them eat mudcakes approach to the bust.

War was the only way he could save his career.
