Probably won’t make it to December 7, 2041, even though born 8 months and 27 days after the attack but do wonder what America and Japan will be like then?
That date changed many things for both countries but now all I find of most import is that nuclear technology has twice had adverse impacts for the Japanese but perhaps America also.
The USA may well leaves many marks on human society but clearly the US is the greatest proliferator of weaponary, nuclear and conventional, in the history of the world.
Reinstitution of an ACDA [Arms Control and Disarmament Agency] would be sound policy IMO!

Bill, I really agree, I would only add that we also have no qualms either arming or otherwise selling any and all weaponry to almost anybody, no matter how many war crimes or other human rights violations they are committing or have committed, with or beyond those weapons. Saudi Arabia in Yemen is only the most recent example of this, amongst many, many others (like Israel, esp. with nuclear weaponry, which we them expect Arab states to completely ignore – and when they rather understandably don’t, they’re somehow the aggressors, not Israel and the U.S….).

And yet have we learned the lessons of WWII as well of those of WWI? We remain “not all in” for national preparedness and isolationistic perspective persists. We have the most sophisticated intel operations yet it remains insufficient. And the extant threats remain.
