Not American but Princess Di's death
I remember that. Saturday night I believe. Before we left the house motzei shabbos they spoke of the accident. By the time we came back they were speaking of her in the past tense.

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.

I don't remember that one but that can be a PC thread all by itself.
I just found a new supply of forks!

Yup. I was very young but I remember vividly. There was a massive snow storm and we were in the car on the way home from shabbos (no idea where we were).
If you don't care why would you comment?

Nor would a PH harbor bombing today affect every American like it did in 1941. Warfare has changed in the past 75 years...
It definitely would. There are 2 attacks on the homeland in US History ( excluding 1812, Civil war).

PH
9/11

The difference is simple if any country would have done the 9/11 attacks, you better believe that we would have a full scale war.

A full scale war in 2015 doesn't look the same as it did in 1941. Those days aren't coming back. Drones, nukes, etc.
Nobodys invading Normandy with thousands of boots on the ground in 2015...

Oh I remember that! Villa in Vermont on okeamo mountain. Watched it in the side room which was able to be rented out separately or together with the villa.
I'm not who you think I am.

1 that's not even close to accurate. Even the twin towers had an attack before 9/11.
Besides during WWII Japanese troops invaded parts of Alaska.

A full scale war in 2015 doesn't look the same as it did in 1941. Those days aren't coming back. Drones, nukes, etc.
Nobodys invading Normandy with thousands of boots on the ground in 2015...
Agreed. The thought of WWIII is a scary one.

Nukes aside. Do you really think that we would fight with drones If someone attacks the homeland??

We would destroy that country with every method in our disposal and dispose the government.

Which country exactly is attacking the US homeland in 2015? NK? Iran? They'd have to be suicidal as they'd be nuked to death within hours.
There's not going to be a mass draft for that...

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?
Nope, 9/11 was legit random.

Unless it's a US vs China or Russia, which was the scenario at WWII. The most powerful countries in the world at war.

But I don't think that it's on the planning stages
