While that was the effect of the attack, both with Hitler and FDR, the discussion within the war cabinet beforehand was all about the dangers of the ships falling into German hands.

ps: while Churchill gets all the blame for this attack it was done with the full backing of the War Cabinet which included the leaders of the Labour and Liberal political parties.
Thank you very much Redcoat for the enlightenment. I learned from it.

Kind regards, Paul.
