Infamy

(Based on a comment I made at Z's.)

Imagine if on Dec 8, 1941, FDR had gotten on the radio and said something like:

“Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”


“Yesterday at the White House, we welcomed community groups from the United States, and some from your countries, to focus on how we can empower communities to protect their families and friends and neighbors from violent ideologies and recruitment. 
And over the coming months, many of your countries will host summits to build on the work here and to prepare for the General Assembly. 
Today, I want to suggest some areas where I believe we can focus on as governments.”

Of course the second part is a quote from Obama.

  2. With deference to a like critter to myself, NFO, the time for fear was in 2007. Obama is far from done with us yet. We can only hope the jelly doesn't run out.
