The USS Arizona Memorial is a place for quiet contemplation, and at Pearl Harbor it is nearly impossible not to reflect on the dangers that gather when rising powers like 1930s-era Japan and Germany confront dominant or status quo powers like Great Britain and its American allies.

While U.S. officials suggested they viewed the idea as a non-starter, it could provide an opening for U.S. President Donald Trump's administration to pursue diplomacy.
