Obama’s college buddy

Do you know who this guy is?  This is a picture of Fleet Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto.  He was the Commander in Chief of the Imperial JapaneseNavy  during WWII and planned many of their battles including Pearl Harbor.  He also knew and understood the United States far better than our Current Commander in Chief.  Of all the Japanese military leaders, Admiral Yamamoto was the most apprehensive about a war with the U.S. and alignment with Germany.
Ironically, Yammamoto was a Harvard man, just like Obama.  Later he served as a Naval Attache at the Japanese embassy in D.C. and toured the U.S. quite a bit.  As a result he understood the potential of this country and it’s people.  Whenever posibible he tried to dissuadehis government from engaging the U.S. in battle, but none the less did his duty and served his coutry. 
So what does a Japanese WWII Admiral who masterminded the Pearl Harbor attack (on my own Grandfather no less) doing in a blog  about American freedom?
He explained to his governemnt that invading the United States was not an option,  He said “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.”
Yammamoto understood the POWER of an armed populace.  The mere presence of  civilian gun owners was sufficient deterrent to the most agressive milkitary power in the Pacific.  Too bad our current leadership does not  understand this.  I guess they dont teach history at Harvard…..
