Abe won't apologise at Pearl Harbour

Scene at Pearl Harbor Dec. 7 1941

While the US and Japan have been great friends for decades - which tells you a lot about this country - it's vital to remember Pearl Harbor and the unjustifiable provocation to war it represents. This will be a visit to soothe the souls of the victims. "We'd like to send messages about the importance of reconciliation between the two countries", Abe told reporters in Tokyo. A total of 2,335 US servicemen were killed and 1,143 were wounded. It brought America into World War II and must be considered one of the most significant events in American and maybe even world history. President Barack Obama visited Hiroshima past year.

"Pearl Harbor Day is one of the significant anniversaries of World War II, which reminds us of the great sacrifices our military men and women bear to defend and protect our freedoms", LePage said in a statement issued Tuesday.

Because of the attack, the United States entered World War II, a four-year effort costing more than 400,000 American lives.

But after his lengthy chat with reporters about preparing for Monday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens (among many other things), Belichick talked about something else that is near and dear to his heart: the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.

It's fitting that we recall that horrific day of the attack on Pearl Harbor, honor those who died there, reflect on the years of conflict that followed and contemplate a better way forward.

American Legion Auxiliary members have dedicated themselves for almost a century to meeting the needs of our nation's veterans, military and their families both here and overseas.

In Nagoaka, the fireworks have long served as a reminder of the more than 1,400 people who died in USA aerial firebombing attacks on the city during the final weeks of the war.

Wednesday's commemoration at a pier overlooking the memorial to the sunken USS Arizona built in the harbor is set to begin with a moment of silence at precisely that time. "We are a united nation, and I think it's important to show that". "Majority are bad folks and would love to do awful things to us if they could get away with it".

We, as a nation, did not achieve character when the war ended. For U.S. Pacific fleet commander Adm. Scott Swift, the service of today's sailors at Pearl Harbor is a fitting testament to those who came before.

In addition to its extensive collection of documents, the museum's collection includes a U.S. Sherman tank, dozens of uniforms and six of the "Enigma" machines that Germany used for coded transmissions.
