History shows that Franklin Roosevelt and his associates
while knowing war was coming were concerned that Japan
should fire the “first shot”, ( though they were terribly wrong about
where that first shot would fall).

My question is: in today’s world can a country be so patient,
( I say “a country” because my question is influenced by my readings
on Israel’s Six Day War when it didn’t wait, and the Yom Kippur War
when it did--think Iran)?
