December 7, 1941: Day of Deceit--FDR and Pearl Harbor

FDR deliberately set up a plan to provoke Japan into attacking the US Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor (where they sat as ducks in this new forward position, resisted by Naval commanders for that very reason), in order to force reluctant Americans into war with Germany.
Throughout 1941, FDR implemented the remaining seven provocations. He then gauged [monitored] Japanese reaction through intercepted and decoded communications intelligence originated by Japan’s diplomatic and military leaders.

The island nation’s militarists used the provocations to seize control of Japan and organized their military forces for war against the U.S., Great Britain, and the Netherlands. The centerpiece – the Pearl Harbor attack – was leaked to the U.S. in January 1941. During the next 11 months, the White House followed the Japanese war plans through the intercepted and decoded diplomatic and military communications intelligence.
The sinking of the USS West Virginia, then, can be laid at the feet of President Roosevelt, in order to provoke West Virginians and Americans into war in the European (as well as Japanese) theater which they had resisted.

7, 1941 . . . a Day of Deceit
week, as Americans remember those 2403 men, women, and children
killed – and 1178 wounded – in the Japanese attack on
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941, recently released government
documents concerning that "surprise" raid compel us to
revisit some troubling questions.
There are
two questions at the top of the foreknowledge list: (1) whether
President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his top military chieftains
provoked Japan into an "overt act of war" directed at
Hawaii, and (2) whether Japan’s military plans were obtained in
advance by the United States but concealed from the Hawaiian military

Roosevelt believed that provoking Japan into an attack on Hawaii
was the only option he had in 1941 to overcome the powerful America
First non-interventionist movement led by aviation hero Charles
Lindbergh. These anti-war views were shared by 80 percent of the
American public
