The attack on Pearl Harbor was a military attack on 7 December 1941 by Japan on the neutral United States, more specifically an attack on the naval base at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii. The naval base and the United States Pacific Fleet was damaged and 2,403 Americans were killed. Regarding more details on the politically correct view on this, see the "External links" section.

Revisionist views

Revisionist critiques of the official version include that persons in the US government had foreknowledge of the attack, without acting on this information, or even deliberately precipitated the attack in order to bring the United States into WWII. See the "External links" section.

Another revisionist view is on the importance of influential Communist infiltrators, notably Harry Dexter White, who are argued to have been important in inciting a war between Japan and the United States. See the "External links" section.

Another aspect is the following German declaration of war on the United States, often described in politically correct sources as a gigantic German mistake. See the section on WWII in Revisionist views on the causes of the World Wars.
