Interesting "What if"…

Exactly how would the Soviets invade Japan. Make a land bridge out of discarded T-34s?
Navy? We don't need no stinkin' navy.

Apparently the Soviet Union did not have to deal with the massive bottleneck building landing craft like we did.

"Because a Secret Service agent totally almost shot him by accident."

And this is what happens when The Internet does not need "editing" any more.
The two most cringe inducing words on line are "totally" and "hilarious".

The Attack on Pearl Harbor Almost Went on for Days

The attack on Pearl Harbor, admittedly one of the worst days in American history, does not even come close to the Michael Bay movie it almost was (or the Michael Bay movie it unfortunately became). Several of the Japanese commanders in charge of the attack wanted to keep the assault going for another wave that would have pretty much destroyed the island, crippled the Pacific Fleet, and added several years to World War II, potentially extending the conflict well into the next decade and overriding all the doo-wop records and Honeymooners episodes people were supposed to be occupied with in the 1950s. Also, it would've seriously encroached on the Korean War, and that war gets so little attention as it is.

Good Grief.

That is an absolutely terrible article.

As I recall, the Pearl Harbor movie was so bad that even the Japanese protested being included in it…

None of them really meet the criteria of "insane" either. Not like "Teddy Roosevelt bans chewing gum, leading the Wrigley family to hire a 3-armed lesbian short person to assassinate him during an illegal high stakes croquet match in Tibet with a stick pin stolen from Marilyn Monroe via a time machine, leaving Mark Twain in drag to lead the charge up San Juan hill, which he lost in the fog, leaving Cuba Spanish."

No, it is a Cracked article.

Concur. However, it meets the standard for its intent – what most people think is wildly outrageous for the sake of infotainment.
