"He makes the case that at least by our current standards we were terrorists..."
Not so, Mr. Grayling.
Germany announced that they were giving a war and wouldn't we like to come.
We accepted their gracious invitation.
Terrorism is where there is an indiscriminate attack, like what happened at the twin towers or Pearl Harbor. Quite a difference.
I disagree with your labeling the attack on Pearl Harbor a terrorist attack. While it was a sneak attack, it was on a legitimate military target. The only civilians killed were killed by unexploded US anti-aircraft shells.
