 Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation
delivered on December 8, 1941
Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, Members of the Senate, and of the House of Representatives:Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 -- a date which will live in infamy -- the United States of Americawas suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still inconversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in thePacific.Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our Secretaryof State a formal reply to a recent American message. And while this reply stated that it seemeduseless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or of armed attack.It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack wasdeliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanesegovernment has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements andexpressions of hope for continued peace.The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval andmilitary forces. I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition,American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco andHonolulu.Yesterday, the Japanese government also launched an attack against Malaya.Last night, Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.
