Today is a date that will live in infamy, and 102-year old U.S. Navy Veteran Jim Downing says he still remembers the Pearl Harbor attack as if it were just last week – and it was 74 years ago today.
As if anyone who was there could possibly forget.
The next day, President Roosevelt addressed the country and war was declared on Japan.
That was when America had a spine. That was when America struck back when an enemy attacked us on our own soil. We cared about Americans and our safety.
Today, we know who the enemy is – Islamic jihadists who follow the teachings of the Koran and are bent on establishing a global caliphate.
We know the status quo for radical Islamic terrorists, killing all that do not follow the law of Islam.
Jim Downing has a few choice words for the Obama administration regarding his approach – or lack thereof – towards the jihad wave of terror sweeping the nation.
HE SAID, “WEAKNESS INVITES AGGRESSION. REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR. KEEP AMERICA STRONG.”
Thank you, sir, for your service. I will never forget Pearl Harbor or the lives that were lost there, nor the valiant men and women that rallied the nation in retribution for those attacks.
