Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 -- a date which will live in infamy -- the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

1. How quaint! A President asking Congress to Declare War.
Those were the days .... in a way.
America stayed out of the war for as long as possible.
In the face of a true 'clear and present danger', the Congress decides on the question of war instead of defaulting its Constitutional responsibilities.
In the name of all those who died in Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq and Afghanistan we might return to the days when warfare is the last option and when the Constitution was not 'just a piece of paper'.
