Victory at Midway

The victory in the Battle of Midway destroyed most of the Japanese fleet, giving them a defeat they never expected.  This changed the balance of sea power in the Pacific, which also changed the direction of the war with Japan.  Just a few months after the Japanese surprise attack at Pearl Harbor, the United States had reversed the course of the war and became the aggressor against the aggressor.Battle of Midway

It has always fascinated me how a small island nation like Japan could even imagine that it could defeat the United States.  Indeed, after Pearl Harbor, on of their senior officers said, “I am afraid we have just awakened a sleeping giant.”  That turned out to be very prophetic.

In this day, many wonder how a small, fanatic bunch of radical muslims could imagine attacking the United States with the goal of taking us over altogether.  And yet, that is precisely what they wish to do.  If Japan had conquered us, we would all be speaking Japanese now.  If the Islamists conquer us, we will all be under Sharia Law.

  1. True!!! American leaders need to quit playing politics, be honest and get our country back on the track that our wonderful forefathers set up. We as a people, a nation and as individuals must repent and turn our focus back to Jesus.
    “If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
