Remembering the "Good War"
Image from Lileks. [check out his whole "patriotica" section]
Today we commemorate the "day that shall live in infamy" -- the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor that launched America directly into WWII. James Lileks reminds us of what a real racist conflict looks like.
Those adolescent posturers who complain incessantly about American "racism" or the "suppression of civil liberties" during wartime, or the secrecy that surrounds military and intelligence activities would find a useful and illuminating point of comparison in the conditions that prevailed during the "Good War."
Remember, "Loose Lips Sink Ships."
