Some Historians believe that the American Government knew that Japan was going to attack. However the truth about the attack on Pearl Harbor is somewhat similar to what happened on September 11, 2001.
Medium: Jorge Raul Olguin.
Entity that came to dialogue: Master Ruanel.
Interlocutor: Was it entirely a terrorist attack or was there connivance with the American government? The concrete question I make in the first place is if the American government higher authorities knew about the attack that would take place, in the same way that happened to Pearl Harbor?
Ruanel: Yes, both cases are similar. They knew that those events were going to happen, but they didn't prevent them due to negligence.
Interlocutor: Negligence or connivance?
Ruanel: No, not connivance. Negligence.
Interlocutor: Then, in both of the two cases they let those events happen in order to take advantage of the juncture? For example, in the case of Pearl Harbor, so that the United States could have the excuse to enter in the war and, in the case of Bush's government, to attack Iraq.
Ruanel: No, that is a mistake. In both cases there was negligence. In the case of Pearl Harbor, if you review the history a little, you will realize that the United States practically didn't have in that time any warlike capacity.
After the attack to Pearl Harbor they had to work in the factories 24 hours a day to be prepared, with weapons, airplanes, etc. Even if the day had had more hours they would have worked them also.
Interlocutor: Is it an entire infamy then to suspect that Roosevelt let the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor as an excuse to enter in war?
Ruanel: Completely. On the contrary, he had so much incapacity before the attack due to the lack of armament that he gave an order to work intensely for all the factories to get ready and give a lesson to the Japanese.
He even ordered to all the steel factories that were making other things to stop making that things and begin to build weapons.
For example, the auto parts factories, cars, etc., supported the factories of airplanes and armaments for many months.
Interlocutor: But didn't the United States press to Japan so that they attacked them like some historians say?
Ruanel: No, not at all. It was a total act of betrayal on behalf of the Japanese.
Interlocutor: Concretely, the United States didn’t want to enter in war and they didn't have any choice than doing it after Pearl Harbor?
Ruanel: That’s right. And luckily for the Freedom of the World in that time, because it was the United States the country that turned the war around, otherwise the war would have be won by Germany, Japan and Italy.
Interlocutor: I understand.
