I can't tell if you're joking or not.
Do you want to know? Do you really? I don't think you will be pleased with the answer.
I'm quite sure that I know a hell of a lot more about WWII naval history than you do.
I believe you. The age difference says something of intelligence. 😜 I believe it was dirty play by the Japanese, but I'm sure the U. S. was involved in some fashion. What about the McCollum memo?
Just an overeager subordinate.
Can you broaden on that?
I have found a bit on it, but it doesn't seem like it was just an overeager subordinate. On October 7, 1940, exactly fourteen months before the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, Lieutenant Commander Arthur H. McCollum penned a memorandum, recommending that the United States government provoke the Japanese into attacking America, and thus, allowing America to enter WWII with the American people fully behind the decision. The memorandum is called theMcCollum memo, and there is little mention of it in history textbooks.
I've never seen any evidence that the memo had any effect, and the actions that it proposed were obvious ones.
But the intentions were there, although I could not find anything confirming they put the memo into effect. But, a memo means written message, and they told and confirmed this to the American public. A memo would not be announced nationwide if they had no intention of putting it into effect. That is what confuses me.
Actually, people were thinking of bombs of 20,000 lbs in 1940, and Little Boy was about 10,000 lbs. The problem was that there wasn't yet an aircraft big enough to carry them.

And through the _Southern_ Hemisphere as well! But hey, if they had flown over land the attack might have been detected :)
@JenSCDC Lmao. There's a guy on here who defends the flat earth theory, and I still can't tell if he's a troll or if he's serious. But he links shit like this all the time.
I know just who you're talking about. I lean towards him actually being that stupid.
Who is he? PM me his username
@Asker If I run into him again I will.
And of course, the 9/11 truthers are out in full force.
OMG, they did NOT go that distance! Japan is right next to Hawaii!
No shit Sherlock
Yes, my little Grasshopper.
It's obviously a joke. Do you have an extra chromosome or something?
