If our territory, interests, and citizens are in danger, they would be foolish to advocate for keeping our “isolationist” position in the war President Roosevelt uses the organization and style of his speech with great skill, grabbing the audience and then feeding them the information at just the right time and in the right order to be effective. Everyone knew that on the previous day, we had been attacked by Japan. However, Roosevelt is very specific in his introduction, citing the date, and using words such as "infamy," "suddenly," and "deliberately" in his introduction to grab the audience and pull them in to his every word. The words and style are vital, for if they had failed, the whole speech would be for naught. In his organization, Roosevelt starts his speech with very general ideas, gradually getting more specific and only after all the details are presented does he ask for war, which is the purpose of the speech.

Jennifer Mrs. L English II Honors 11 April 2011 The Attack on Pearl Harbor On December 7th 1941 at 7:55 a.m. the U.S. naval base stationed at Oahu, Hawaii was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the Japanese nation. This was a devastating attack on the U.S nation and many lives were lost. Japan deceived America into thinking they wanted peace with America while planning the attack. Ignored warnings and miscommunication caused America to suffer greatly from the deceitful and surprise Pearl Harbor attack that the Japanese went to great lengths planning but inadvertently made a mistake by failing to realize the American resolve. The Japanese spent many careful months planning the people, date, time and outline for the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Why We Fight On December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked upon American naval forces and air defenses at Pearl Harbor. This event gave Franklin Roosevelt the justification he needed to enter the United States in World War II. Other than that there were additional motivations for America’s entrance into the war.

War in the Pacific When Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, they crippled the United States’ Naval forces leaving eight battleships burning in the harbor. Japan thought this maneuver would cripple the U.S.and that America would negotiate a settlement and allow Japan to control all of Asia.

Initially U.S troops in the Pacific suffered through many losses in the early months on the Pacific Theater, but they were always able to regroup due to their vast amount of resources. Battle of the Coral Sea & Midway The battle of the Coral Sea was fought in mid-1942.

An American that had been deeply divided over how much aid to give the Allies was not united in a common purpose: make the Japanese pay for their attack and rid the world of Nazism and Fascism.

As a nation in America, all lives saved counted greatly. There was a total of 110,000 people killed, 253,000 injured, and 30,000 that were prisoners of war at this time already, no more were needed to be lost.

Along with these treatments of Allied prisoners, the bombing of Pearl Harbor was also a huge factor in Truman’s decision.
