I do one question about the evidence of FDR possibly trying to provoke the Japaneses into firing a first shot……is there anything particularly pointing to the fact that the this would mean guarantee war against Germany? I mean surely the administration would want to make certain that would happen before getting themselves involved in what could possibly be a rather unwanted war only in the Pacific and not in Europe…where they really wanted to go. :-/
Or was provoking Japan to attack and Germany declaring war just a irrational not guaranteed possibility the administration held on hopeful that it would happen?
