It is Sunday December 7th. 2008, and the 67th Anniversary of Japan's deadly attack on Pearl Harbor
Today is the 67th. anniversary of Japan's cowardly attack on the US Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, they did not even trouble to declare war on the US, just swooping out of the skies with carrier borne aircraft to cripple the US Navy.
It became known as President Delano Roosevelt's Day of Infamy.
It immediately brought a declaration of was by the US upon Japan, and certainly signalled the beginning of the end for that oriental power.
It was a supreme moment as we remember all who died that fatal morning across the Pacific.
