Exclamation Anniversary of more of the same....

Quote:
For those not familiar with the story of the Lusitania, she was a British passenger liner, carrying a number of Americans, torpedoed off the Irish coast by the German submarine U-20 during World War I. The sinking and subsequent deaths of several civilians is cited by many to be one of the first modern examples of "total war." The nature of the explosions that sank the ship and the politics surrounding her demise have never been satisfactorily explained and to this day remain shrouded in a cloud of mystery.

Contrary to popular belief, the Lusitania disaster was not the proximate cause of the United States entering the First World War; however, the Lusitania is often credited for turning the then-neutral United States' opinion against Germany. Another repercussion of the sinking often overlooked is that Germany, fearing American wrath, restrained themselves in submarine warfare, which may have been Germany's best chance at winning the war. Yet, it was Germany's very resumption of unrestricted submarine warfare in early 1917 that finally forced the United States to declare war.

1941 - Pearl Harbor: The US military decodes a message they intercepted from the Japanese outlining the attacks of Pearl Harbor weeks before the attacks. The message was a response to an insulting ultimatum that the US sent Japan that got the US the response they wanted, and attack on Pearl Harbor. "The question was: how we should maneuver [the Japanese] into the position of firing the first shot.” - Secretary of War Henry Stimson

In 1995, the CIA and the FBI learned that Osama bin Laden was planning to hijack U.S. airliners and use them as bombs to attack important targets in the U.S. This scheme was called Project Bojinka.

Project Bojinka, which Philip-pine authorities found outlined on Abdul Murad's laptop, called for planting bombs on eleven U.S. airliners and hijacking others and crashing them into targets like the CIA building.
