Comment on Pearl Harbor was Allowed to Happen Conspiracy Theories by Oscar.
Many governments have staged attacks for political excuses. Hitler did it with the excuse to invade Poland. My theory is that not only the government new about the attack, it was staged by it. My big question is the following. Why a big power like Japan will attack Pearl Harbor, destroy every form of defense in an island thousands of miles from continental US, went back to their island without the occupation of such strategic point to dominate the Pacific and wait if “the sleeping giant” to awake. Were they stupid? Nobody told them that after the attack they can bring the navy and invade the island? This is hard to buy.
