Good article. Debunks some of the commonly held falsities surrounding the supposedly justified intervention by the U.S. in WWII.

The only reason the U.S got involved in the first place was for the benefit of the war lobby along with expanding the welfare-warfare state, the robbing of civil liberties, and the strengthening of executive powers for future decades.
