There wasn't much limited about Pearl Harbor. It was more than half of the Japanese Empire's entire navy. If America sent half of its sidewinders at Syria there wouldn't be a country left to argue over.

A smaller scale attack on Pearl Harbor
>Almost no civilians dead
"Omg the japanese really did this to us!"

Nuke down half of Japan
>A huge amount of civilians dead
>Forget it, let's cry about Pearl Harbor

That's what I think whenever I see "Pearl Harbor" anywhere

Let's get something straight shall we?
Pearl Harbor was an act of terrorism on the United States. Up until this point in the war, the United States was doing its best to remain neutral and Japan gave absolutely no warning or inclination that they intended to attack the United States. Their declaration of war was a terrorist attack.
Let's fast forward to the nuclear attacks on Japan. The European Theater of the war was finishing up, but Japan was fighting hard as ever. The United States gave a warning to Japan. "Unconditional surrender, or we'll nuke you." After two weeks, no response, therefore the United States dropped the bomb. They gave Japan another chance afterwards and still nothing. so they dropped another one and Japan finally surrendered. Not only were the droppings of the atomic bombs an act of war rather than an act of terrorism, they could have been prevented had Japan surrendered. When the pilot of the plane dropped the first bomb he didn't say "Lol you bombed us first." He said "Dear God, what have we done." While we will never forget Pearl Harbor, we will never forget what we did either. Why do you think no country has engaged in any kind of atomic warfare since? Everyone is terrified of it. While the atomic bomb droppings were absolutely devastating, Pearl Harbor was and still is a tragedy whether you think so or not.

That's what I think whenever I see someone disrespect my country.

The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike conducted by the Imperial Japanese Navy against the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on the morning of December 7, 1941 (December 8 in Japan). The attack led to the United States' entry into World War II.

The attack was intended as a preventive action in order to keep the U.S. Pacific Fleet from interfering with military actions the Empire of Japan was planning in Southeast Asia against overseas territories of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the United States. There were simultaneous Japanese attacks on the US-held Phillipines and on the British Empire in Malaya, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

From the standpoint of the defenders, the attack commenced at 7:48 a.m. Hawaiian Time. The base was attacked by 353 Japanese fighters, bombers and torpedo planes in two waves, launched from six aircraft carriers. All eight U.S. Navy battleships were damaged, with four being sunk. Two of these were later raised, and with the remaining four repaired, six battleships returned to service later in the war. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, an anti-aircraft training ship, and one minelayer. 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,402 Americans were killed and 1,282 wounded. Important base installations such as the power station, shipyard, maintenance, and fuel and torpedo storage facilities, as well as the submarine piers and headquarters building (also home of the intelligence section) were not attacked. Japanese losses were light: 29 aircraft and five midget submarines lost, and 65 servicemen killed or wounded. One Japanese sailor was captured.

The following day (December 8), the United States declared war on Japan. Domestic support for non-interventionism, which had been strong, disappeared.

Except Japan also invaded Guam and Wake Island on the same day. Also they invaded American controlled Phillipines(the day after pearl harbor) so Japan do invade US territory. I see your point OP but come on.

I think Some country needs to bitch slap america and tell. them the rules. Because for some stupid reason America thinks that is can just kidnap someone from a country without their permission even if he is a terrorist.
