Hitler never wanted war with us. He knew he could not win in the long run, but he had to back his partner, japan.
They failed to do any REAL damage in that attack. Battle ships were on their way out so no great loss except for the men in them.
They failed to take out the fuel depots and of course, the carriers which proved their biggest mistake. Those carriers at the battle of Midway turned the course of the war in our favor.
As Yamamoto said, "I fear we have awakened a sleeping giant."
As I understand our history, we have only had two wars that had anything to do with our freedom. The revolution and the War of 1812.
