You can save youtube videos.
Go to www.savetube.com. You then need file converters to use them in other ways, such as making a DVD copy of them.

Looking at that one can see why conspiracy theorists question if it wasn't a set up. Ships which ultimately were a bit behind their time. Aircraft carriers were the real new modern craft. But none there? Havwe to double check that. But there were plenty of other ships sunk by U-boats which were covered up as engine trouble, boiler explosions etc... I am not too aware of the sub, have heard a little about it.

Here look at the ages of the Battleships at Pearl Harbor. WWI era ships

And no modern carriers at all?

California Battleship 44 1919

Maryland Battleship 46 1920

Oklahoma Battleship 37 1914

Tennessee Battleship 43 1919

West Virginia Battleship 48 1921

Arizona Battleship 39 1915

Pennsylvania Battleship 38 1915

Nevada Battleship 36 1914

Utah Battleship 31 1911

Not to discount the very real loss of life that day, a tragedy of huge proportions, of that there's no doubt.

Carriers

Postby JOHN THURSTON » Fri Aug 22, 2008 8:30 pm

It is simply that the two carriers were at sea when the attck took plcace.

All the modern weapons?

Many of Britain's Battlle ships servered though both war.

The Slower firing secondary batteries were replaced and enhanced on those shio raised and on bacsically all Classes of that age.

Comspiracy?

Well, It Looked like Germany might start the war first. All of the classes we have come to be famiiliar (South Dakota etc.) first went to serve in Europe.
.


I'll try to post some pics of the repaired vessls in their later guises,


The British lost Hood, Barham and Royal Oak, Prince of Wales and Repulse.

Queen Elizabeth was damaged at "Alex" by An Itialian Midget sub.
