Yueyin,

I haven't heard anything about this. The discussions must not have been too "serious".

Anyway, a subway system for Austin seems like overkill to me. What works well for a big metropolitan area doesn't necessarily work well for a place like Austin that has a less concentrated downtown but has more of a sprawled out urban development.

Steve,

I think you are right. Another obstacle is its big cost.

Yueyin,

Definitely. Not only is it cost-prohibitive, you have to wonder how much benefit the majority of Austin's population could really get out of an expensive subway system like this built in and around downtown Austin.

Steve,

Probably, they put the Capital MetroRail system in wrong places at a wrong time. With traffic jams during rush hours in Austin like this, they must find a solution to the problem sooner or later.

Pearl Harbor Remembered Dec 7, 2016

http://www.history.co.uk/study-topics/history-of-ww2/pearl-harbor



...

The causes of the attack on Pearl Harbor stemmed from intensifying Japanese-American rivalry in the Pacific. Japan’s imperial ambitions had been evident from as early as 1931, when she invaded Manchuria. The conquered region’s bountiful resources were then used to supply Japan’s war machine. Leaving the League of Nations in 1933, Japan pursued an aggressive foreign policy aimed at creating the ‘Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere’, a euphemism for a Japanese empire modelled on European ones of the 19th century.
...

The following day, the US declared war against Japan, where a shared sense of outrage and hatred had united the country’s bitterly divided media and public behind Roosevelt. On 11 December 1941, Germany and Italy declared war on the United States, thus bringing America into World War II.

Pearl Harbor appeared to be a huge success for Japan. It was followed by rapid Japanese conquests in Hong Kong, Singapore, Burma, the Philippines, Malaya and New Guinea. Yet in the long term, the attack was strategically catastrophic. The ‘sleeping giant’ had been awoken, and in America, a sense of fury now accompanied the mobilisation for war of the world’s most powerful economy. The losses at Pearl Habor would soon be more than made good, and used to take a terrible vengeance on Japan.

2001 movie "Pearl Harbor" Dec 7, 2016

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYYX5LB-O1g

At about 2:01:22 of the movie, Lt. Colonel Doolittle said to the pilots: “I have a phrase I want you to memorize - wo shi yi ge mei guo ren.” He said so just because the sixteen B-25B bombers were supposed to land in China after bombing Tokyo since coming back to land on the aircraft carrier Hornet was impossible. 风萧萧兮易水寒,壮士一去兮不复返!

Lt. Col. Robert L. Hite Dec 7, 2016


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doolittle_Raid
U.S. Army Air Force Lt. Robert L. Hite, blindfolded by his captors, is led from a Japanese transport plane after he and the other seven flyers were flown from Shanghai to Tokyo. Hite was co-pilot of crew 16 (B-25B s/n 40-2268 Bat out of Hell, 34th Bomb Squadron) of the "Doolittle Raiders". After about 45 days in Japan, all eight were taken back to China by ship and imprisoned in Shanghai. On 15 October 1942 three were executed, one died in captivity. The four others, including Hite, were liberated on 20 August 1945.

Lt. Col. Robert L. Hite was born in Odell, Texas on March 3, 1920. He died on March 29, 2015 in Nashville at the age of 95.
