Not one Japanese American with whom I've spoken compares 9/11/01 with 12/07/41. However, I and others have compared it to the destruction of Hirosima and Nagasaki. Comparisons with Pearl Harbor are short sighted and one sided.

I think equating the events of Sept. 11 and Pearl Harbor are misleading in understanding both events. We can not yet get any historical perspective on the attacks on America on Sept. 11. We must as a nation look to history and the events surrounding World War II to get some perspective on how to respond as a nation to the present crisis and war on terrorism.
