That about says it all.

Although some sites would enumerate at this point, the casualties sustained by the Japanese, in the attack on Pearl Harbor
Why do any sites bother? Just confuses the Japanese, who are taught a COMPLETELY whitewashed version of their role in WWII.
Believe it or not, most of them believe that they went to war because the Allies were blockading their access to oil just to be mean. NO mention is made of their planned Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere or their occupation, rape, and pillage of Manchuria (China) or Korea.

Dec. 7th Heads Up!
My husband and some other active duty folk from our church went down and presented a wreath at the ceremony this morning. It's hard to describe how moving it is, particularly when one of the other friends who was along was 7 or 8 and living very near Pearl when the attack hit. He's Japanese, Buddhist - says their family was told by the Buddhist priest not to come to temple on the 7th. He saw the planes fly overhead, thought at first it was an exercise.
Here's a photo of the group and their wreath. The guy in the center is the minister, not a veteran.

There is one point that was not made in the above post, that I find very interesting.
In just barely under six months after Pearl Harbor, the US Navy trounced the Japanese Navy at Midway, in what was the turning point in the whole Pacific war. There was still a lot of battles to be fought, but from that point on, the Japanese were, for all intents and purposes, on the defense.
Think about it...
From Pearl Harbor to turn around in ONLY 6 MONTHS.
