IMO, the difference is more a question of the type of war that followed. The war on terror did not affect the average American at all in comparison to the way WWII did.
Nor would a PH harbor bombing today affect every American like it did in 1941. Warfare has changed in the past 75 years...

And...
That doesn't lessen the difference, it just helps explain it. I don't necessarily agree that this accounts for the whole difference either. You have to remember that the Axis powers had already conquered a whole lot of places. It was very much a global issue, in a way that doesn't really translate to terrorism.

Will never forget where I was...
My brother was also there as an hatzoloh member. He was there for days on end. Only came home to shower once or twice for a whole week!
He and other members were trying to find some of their friends...

There is no way you can know that. What we do know is how PH and 9/11 affected us and the world. We also know how many lives were lost. There is no comparison.

Exactly JJs point...
Yup.

and the holocaust if fading rapidly too..
True and very scary for us.

There is no way you can know that. What we do know is how PH and 9/11 affected us and the world. We also know how many lives were lost. There is no comparison.
Well for starters the government let both of them happen because they wanted in on both types of wars. And many other comparisons continue.

To say you can't compare them is ignorant. They are two of the most comparable events in the past 70 years of US history.

Hey man this is JS and you know what today is. Your statement was equally as ignorant.

Ftr my HS history teacher did believe PH was allowed by FDR so we can join WWII. We needed an excuse.

He presented very convincing facts to support it, like radar reports from that day that the WH said to ignore.

Both were terrible tragedies that shaped our nation, and they both led us to sending soldiers overseas.

Lets agree your history teacher is a very smart person. What about 9/11? We also let that happen and needed an excuse according to your history teacher?

OK so your first comparison was wrong. Do you want to compare the deaths that resulted from both or do you just want to concede there is no comparison there either?

Not really a matter of comparison.
As far as defining moments for a generation where everyone can tell you where they were when they heard the news, there aren't that many over the past century.
PH
JFK
9/11

Anything else?
