On December 7, 1941, The Japanese air force attacked the United States’  Navy that was stationed at Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii with no warning. This launched the United States into World War II. They debate whether the United States had information and should have seen the attack coming. The attack left the United States’ security exposed and showed not only to the country but the entire world the mistakes that the United States made. Many improvements for security were mandatory afterwards for the United States.
