What do you think? Would the President of the United States sacrifice thousands of lives just for an excuse to enter the war? What did he have to benefit from this? (Keep in mind the war did end The Depression.) If FDR did know, why didn’t the U.S. at least mount some sort of defense? (We still probably would’ve gone to war if we won the Battle of Pearl Harbor.)
