To sway the opinions of some of these writers would be more difficult than trying to reverse the direction the earth spins so all I can do is present counter-arguments to some of the nonsense I have seen out there.
You would be a foolish leader to think the empires that are raping lands and peoples in vast quantities have no interest in conquering you (or someone important to you at some point in the future.) The trick then is in knowing where and when that first 'surprise' attack will come. Some sites claim to know that on the day before Pearl Harbor, FDR received a memo with specifics and ignored it. Unlike authors on those sites, I wasn't working in the White House in 1941 so I can't contradict these opinions. I can speculate as to the nature of what they are upset about, and I will in a bit.
