Holy crap, it shifted the Earth's axis, too.


Were any of you even alive when Pearl Harbor got attacked?

Here are some choice quotes:

"Apparently God hasn't forgotten about Pearl Harbor either..."

The sheer arrogance here is astounding. Why do you think that God favors OUR country above all others, and why didn't He hit Japan with a massive quake DURING THE WAR instead of almost 70 years later?

"those damn krauts deserve to be hit by a earthquake tsunami for nuking pearl harbor."

1. Kraut is a derogatory term for Germans, not Japanese.

2. Japan didn't use a nuke on us.

Speaking of nukes.

"Karma: well japan did attack pearl harbor......."

We hit them with atomic bombs. Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Take a look at the numbers for immediate deaths, and the long-term effects from the radiation.

"who gives one shit about japan? not this guy. did they send aid when americans were dying during Katrina? hell no, remember pearl harbor? Late justice."

/rubbing bridge of nose/ God can people be more stupid. Ugh this is frustrating.

I also find it ironic that they bring up Katrina when there were Americans during THAT time saying that it was punishment from God for how "sinful" we've been and that's why it hit New Orleans so hard.

Just...what? What! AUGH!

Pearl Harbor =/= Current Earthquake on Japan. Plus, it's been SEVENTY FREAKING YEARS. Next thing you know there will be a crisis in Russia and we'll be saying how those "Damn Commies" deserved it. I may be wrong about this but I was under the impression that present day America was actually on good terms with Japan.

I'm just glad I haven't seen any comments like this from people I know.

I bet most of these people don't even know what day Pearl Harbor got hit.

December 7th, 1941.

I just read something on Kia's facebook and she brought up a good point as well: most of the people probably saying we shouldn't help Japan were not even ALIVE then. Not to mention the people in Japan who were affected by the earthquake were probably ALSO not alive then.

Not to mention there are several Americans over there who have been affected by this disaster as well.

It's things like this that make me sick. Even if we didn't have people over there, this is a natural disaster and people have died. It has nothing to do with a war or an attack that happened over 70 years ago.

Still, I like to think that THESE people are a minority as most of the things I have seen on twitter, facebook, and lj have been about sending aid in any way possible.

ACTION; Japan attacks Pearl Harbor.
REACTION; ~60 years later, God gives them an earthquake.

ACTION; US nukes Japan.
REACTION; ~60 years later, God gives them George Bush Jr OR OBAMA, TAKE YOUR PICK.

If any of those people were friends with me on FB, I think I'd probably drive to their house and punch them square in the mouth for being such a piece of shit.

And then I'd probably punch them again for being so completely stupid that they're making dumb comments about things they obviously don't know beans about. "Japan started WWII", no. Learn your history if you're going to try to be cute about it. World War II started quite a bit before the US got involved. Yes, Pearl Harbor was terrible. But that was then, and Japan isn't our enemy any more.

Jeez, what do these people know? Obviously it wasn't because of Pearl Harbor, it was because of women dressing imodestly! I thought everybody knew that!
