December 7th, 1941 is a day many Americans are unaware had such an importance in American History.  We as a nation suffered an incredible tragedy on that day.  That was the only day in history that another country declared an act of war on the United States.  Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was attacked and nearly completely destroyed by a Japanese airplane attack squadron.  The attack killed 2,403, wounded 1,178. sank 5 Battleships, 3 destroyers, 3 cruisers, and 188 aircraft. Japanese losses were minimal. The remains of the Battleship Arizona are now a National Memorial, with 1,177 dead still inside the ship.  It was the worst attack on American soil until the 9/11 tragedy.  Do you think that there was some technology back then or today that we could have and still can use to prevent this type of thing never happens again?  Explain why in 5 sentences.

    Not to be a pessimistic person but I don’t really think any technology is going to help us, when there are attackers/invaders. I mean if somebody wants to attack the U.S.A there going to do what ever they want and if there smart they will have back up plans that we cant handle. All we can really do to there country is play the game back and kill all there people. Even know that’s what there doing to us, I don’t think it is really a good idea to get them back, because it may start a big war and kill our soldiers!

    If we had technology i think that would not had happen. Cause the could have seen if the were coming. Most of the people could have been alive to tell there story. I wonder if some lived to see today. The Pearl Harbor was a bad moment for the U.S.A.

    there is alot of technology now that will prevent all this. we have radars and scanners to hear or see if anything is within like 150 miles of us. back then they dident hardly have anything to protect them like we do now. these days we have automatic guns and everything like that to shoot if anything gets close to us to attack us. and we also have the coast guard that will tell the military if anything like airplanes or ships go towards are land then we will send out airplanes or ships to stop them.

    Yes i do think there was some technology back then. I think this because of the 9/11 attack. They had the detectors that check people but they didn’t have that good of security back then so they let all the terrorist in. So that is some technology that they had back then.

    We didn’t have technology like we have now. But i think we do have technology now that can prevent it. There is a lot more weapons that can protect us. And better trained men so it doesn’t happen to us again. And better protected ships and fighter planes that can help us win.

    i think we have a lot of technology that could TRY to stop it but their is no promises and also our technology now is great but could improve and back during the pearl harbor there were no computers and also if you did not know how to hook things up with technology then there is a 50 50 chance of living or dieing and now days we have portable computers and technology

    I think we should have enough technology to stop some of this. The problems we had with pearl harbor were crazy. I think that if the we use are brains we could over come anyone that wants to try. It will affect us but they will not be leaving if they come in here again. They know its going to be completely different.

    WELL THE TECHNOLGY TODAY IS MUCH BETTER THAN THE ONES BACK THEN DURING THAT TIME. WELL IF THEY HAD THE TECHNOLOGY WE HAVE TODAY COULD PREVENT THOSE WARS AND BATTLES WE HAD BACK THEN. SUCH AS THE ONES THAT YOU PUT ON THE SPONGE. THE TECHNOLOGY NOW A DAYS IS SO UPGRADED. IF WE USED THOSE TECHNOLOGY PIECES THAT WERE USED DURING THE TIME WHEN PEARL HABOR WAS GOING. WELL WE WOULD STILL HAVE SOME OF THE OLD WEAPONS AND STUFF WE HAD. IT’S GREAT.

    Some equipment we have today that could have helped is radar. They could have seen the planes coming and could have shot them out of the air. Radar is a modern technology. I think it could have prevented Pearl Harbor. No past technologies could have helped prevent this tragic event.

    no technology would have saved them from the bombs. but if we had some sort of radar that would detected the planes then we might have gotten out of the harbor b4 the attack. but now days, we would have taken out all those planes as soon as they dropped one bomb! but back then thy did not have the type of machinery and guns we have now. but at least we won the war afterward. 😀

    I think that if we had better weapons and better plane it will prevent this from happening again. The things we have today are better than the things we had back than. we can still work on are weapons thou. now we have alot of stuff to tell us that people are coming back then they didn’t have that stuff.

    If we had the technology we have today back then, It definitely could of helped prevent this from happening. With all of the new weapons, machines, and even remote control planes that carry weapons that we have now, It might as well prevented the whole thing from starting. Those things also help prevent stuff like pearl harbor and 9/11 from happening today. We are creating new ways to defend ourselves everyday. So no matter what type of wars or disasters happen in the future, i bet we will create hundreds of things to protect our land and people.

    i think the technology we have today would not have stopped what they did. because we cant stop a bomb of torpedoes. but we could make our attack of then much worse then what they did get. they killed a lot of people and injured. the was a sad day for a bunch of people and its a day we will remember.

    back then i don’t think that they had any technology that would have helped them. but as for today, we have radars we could use. but sometimes not even technology helps us. i mean if someone wants to start a war with us there isn’t anything stopping them for trying. but as long as they have a back up… there’s no stopping them.

    i don’t think the technology we have today would have made any difference. they killed thousands of people. they injured hundreds. the technology we have now would have helped possibly save more lives than we did. it may have saw the planes coming but not prevented it. the technology may have given us more time to get ready but not prevent it.

    i think that any attack like that cant be prevented even with the best technology. this was a very tragic day. the only reason i would feel better is because we got them back. if we didn’t have the atomic bomb the Japanese might have kept attacking us. they might have even took our land. good i was not there to be in the horrible pain.

    OK well I am not too smart on the technology thing. I’ve never been a technical person. Though I can still attempt this question. So let’s see, well, I guess we could use the advanced weapons and armor to defend us. Also, we could be more alert with satellite devices. These are just some random suggestions that come to mind. Hope it helps!

    Yes they could have used something to track unknown aircraft. And probably stopped them before they attacked the main ships. Also they could have used all those machine guns before they killed a heck a lot of people. Instead of haven a ton of people die.
