The Significance of the 'New Pearl Harbor'.

The phrase 'new Pearl Harbor' has become an oft-used reference to the events of 9/11. It was originally used by the Project for the New American Century in a 2000 report [1], which argued that a catalyzing event akin to a 'new Pearl Harbor' was needed to galvanize America into action and increase its military presence. After the attacks, this phrase was seen as a prophetic warning of the events of 9/11.

Donald Rumsfeld, who was Secretary of Defense at the time, echoed the same sentiment in an interview the day after the attacks, referring to the attacks as a 'catastrophic and catalyzing event' and arguing that such an event was needed to rouse the American public into action.

The phrase 'new Pearl Harbor' has come to represent a type of event that would galvanize the public into action and compel a nation to take bold actions to defend itself. This phrase has become a powerful symbol of the tragedy of 9/11 and its lasting impact.
