Yet.! when you sender into the retro-. .spuctivc mirror it looms up like n i fal man in n doorway. After all, on December 7, 1041, the world was coming to a slow boil. The Panay had long b-acn bombed. The U. S. Navy was out for revenge like a lifer eloping with the turnkey's wife. Even I had predicted the ruckus since the London Naval Conference in 1S21. Just twenty years before Pearl Harbor I wrote, "Under the 5-5-3 paet Japan scraps the cruiser Missyu but keeps the battleships Hirsyu and Sinksyi:." Stili in Decemfer, but in 1931. I. came through with. "All Japan j wants is an old-fashioned war with a winner and a loser." Jn iu:e. "Diiwes swing.s that, olive oraneh like a. .shiulah," In :33B, "Roosevelt's in South! America. Farley's in .Ireland, who's watching the .store?" : In 1S37. "Churchill is tv.vir.y 10 sol; us a kite after the string has busted." ::i 1S37. "The last peace treaty was written on tiie brick of a '.vn.r map." In 1938, "Japan has just about overcome Chinese .sales resistance." In 1E39. "It only takes one to make a J'iij'lu it" ho sneaks over the first punch." So we should have been no more astonished at Pearl Harbor than a. four-inch trout in n frying Pan.
