It's the Chomsky Challenge...heh
According to Mark Osmond and Monica Woll, who are reporters for the student online journal, The Michigan Daily, Chomsky stated that “the United States embraces the right to use anticipatory self-defense against terrorist threats,” but that “anticipatory self-defense was not seen as an excuse for Japan to attack Pearl Harbor, despite the fact that the U.S. was plotting an attack against Japan that would have destroyed its wooden cities.”
In other words, according to Chomsky, Yamamoto’s heroic Zero-pilots destroyed most of the American fleet based in Hawaii in order to prevent a dastardly American attack against millions of Japanese civilians.
Was Chomsky’s statement:
A. An important new revelation resulting from a diligent, scholarly process of sifting through the historical record?
B. The restatement of the well-known historical record, researched and recorded by others? OR,
C. A big, heaping, steaming crock…?
