Default Pearl Harbour

Although I hope that this way off base, I have long believed that FDR was more hawkish and proactive in leading the US into WWII than highschool and college textbooks state. Although a little long I thought that this was a well written article. http://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/?p=815

Anybody agree or disagree?

I do believe that is the proper British spelling for harbor.

E.g. 'labour' is the same as 'labor'. Both are correct. Probably invented by the same guy that put the 'u' in 'circuit.
