Today is the 68th anniversary of the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor.
While the attack was done by the Japanese, we in fact have three countries to 'thank' for World War II. Those of course being Japan, Germany and the Soviet Union. To this day, one of those countries has yet to atone for this crime against humanity. Unfortunately, it needs to be stated that the Soviet Union was a leading player in bringing about World War II, because Russia has never really been forced to face that inconvenient detail.

So in order not to forget, we first need to properly remember and recognize the criminal acts of our supposed 'Allie' in that War.
