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.
 Agreed. The thought of WWIII is a scary one.
The PH attack sunk 24 of our ships 10s of planes and left us w/o a major Pacific navy capability. I would compare the fall of the twin towers to that magnitude.

2. They attacked Alaska after we declared war.

The point that I was trying to make is, the response to 9/11 was only different because we didn't have a country attacking us. ( and we still invaded 2 countries)

Have a great Shabbos!

Not exactly. The carriers weren't there. which kind of saved us. Turns out those things were pretty important in WWII.

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
You mean we are one of those today? We are a spineless, gutless, excuse of a country. Not nearly as powerful as we became after WWII.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Giving Russia the nuke with half of Berlin was not power. We could easily be the only nuclear country if we wanted to be.

Who gave Russia the nuke???? Ahem I think it was a fellow named rosenberg with his traitorous wife. Not the US. Nor did we give them half of Berlin. They beat us to the punch in getting there. And that doesnt respond to the statement that we are PRESENTLY a spineless and gutless excuse of a country. The world mocks us.

Don't mention the two people America murdered as good PR as guilty in giving Russia the nuclear bomb.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Yeah, ok. Revisionist history is perfect as well. Did the CIA bring down the WTC too?

Think it's time to bump this thread! Besides for my profile being a picture of 9/11!

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?
Cubs beating CLE in the WS?  :)

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...

Maybe change that to hundreds of thousands to be correct.

I can list a slew of operations that involved "thousands of boots on the ground", including 200,000 during the initial assault on Iraq.

Saw it from the window of OT Zal.
OMG that must've been insane. Can only imagine a few guys chatting at the coffee and boom. Shmerel probably flipped when the whole zal ran ;)
