To the Congress of the United States Yesterday Dec 7 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was 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 in conversation with the government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific Indeed one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleagues delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago During the intervening time the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces Very many American lives have been lost In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu Yesterday the Japanese government also launched an attack against Malaya Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island This morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island Japan has therefore undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area The facts of yesterday speak for themselves The people of the United States have already formed their opinions
