We have Teddy Roosevelt to thank for Japan attacking Pearl Harbor, according to James Bradley, acclaimed author of Flags of Our Fathers and Flyboys. On this Burt Cohen Show, they discuss  Bradley’s new book, The Imperial Cruise, which is all about TR’s white supremacist policies which caused a racist war against the Fillipinos and encouraged Japan to become a militaristic nationalistic empire, leading to Bradley’s own father fighting at Iwo Jima and the deaths of millions. This is some fascinating history, stranger than fiction, with great relevance for today.
