What did you just do!?!
@JewishXenu, Stormbreaker is actually symbolically representative of the power of anime, and that's why I can counter the completed Infinity Gauntlet.
Now I'm not a conspiracy theorist... but it's a little odd that all the USAs best ships were conveniently out at sea that day...
@phalcon , pretty much only aircraft carriers, some pretty badass ships were sunk.
@phalcon , well it was only 1 harbor, and the attack was stopped about 1/3 of the way through iirc. We had some good ships sunk, but A LOT of outdated ones. Ironically, it vastly strengthened our navy in the long run, as all the older ships were replaced with state of the art ones
@phalcon , to add onto what @Curmudgeon , said, Pearl Harbor was known as the party base. The best of the best were not sent there. If you were sent to Pearl Harbor, you were unlikely to see action and would most likely spend your time partying. Which is another reason why the attack was so shocking.
@phalcon , also I believe I saw something that mentioned that the Japanese were operating on intel that the carrier fleet was supposed to be in dry dock that day, but had been scrambled for some exercise or another. Now whether that was a coincidence or deliberate is up for debate.
@phalcon , you loony conspiracy theorist? If you don’t worship the troops then you can leave America.
@phalcon , we didnt know aircraft carriers were the best ships. They targeted battleships because those were the ship of the line then, and they sunk most of them. America adapted by relying on aircraft carriers after that.

Dr. Stephen Strange : ...One.
Why did Japan bomb Pearl Harbor? Wrong answers only.
@a boy named Toobs, It was their awkward middle school way of inviting the USA to a party.
@a boy named Toobs, they attempted to shock the US out of joining the war. In theory, their attack should have crippled the US's response by eliminating their strongest western sea base, but the attack target mostly the battleships and not the harbor's fuel supplies or docks, and that was their mistake. Had the harbor been destroyed, it would have taken the US years to mobilize a force that could supply itself and reach Japan at which point Japan would have conquered the Pacific. Instead the Japanese bombers were told to hit the "biggest threat" the battleships which, though sunk, were easily pulled up out of the water and recycled to build other ships.
@devalation, they did also strike the fuel supplies and docks, but ran out of time since you are right in that they targeted ships first. If Nagumo would’ve rearmed and launched a third fighter wave military analysts believe it may have been possible for them to finish the destruction of the fuel dumps and docks, but he decided to cut and run since they didn’t know where the three Pacific carriers were and couldn’t risk losing their own carrier fleet that early in the war
@a boy named Toobs, Pearl Harbor is also what started the seabees.
Please tell me one of you have a Sub named Mr. Perez
I dont get it...the anola gay is too big to use a carrier
@The mortiest morty, carriers won the war and the war was won well before the atom bomb was used
