Well I really though they destroyed the major ships, and it did a big effect on them but I guess I was wrong also I am sure after we bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki I am sure the Japanese where pretty angry that they attacked Pearl Harbour and regret it aswell.

Yeah, they were angry because it resulted in their land being obliterated. That would ruin anyone's day.

Pearl Harbor didnt really hinder America that much, considering we recovered rather quickly, and then took the battle to the Japanese.
i wouldn't call our counter attack a quick recovery, we simply made a suicide mission just to show that no matter how hard america was hit, we would come right back at you, that was the one and only reason to the Do Little Raid, and once japan saw that after that we were still able to hurt them back, they would know they were in trouble, if we can hurt them while beign injured then imagine what we could do at full strength, thats what we wanted to put in their minds

Your thinking of the Raid, and I was not talking about them, the US did that to show Japan that they could strike back, and to raise American moral, but regardless of that the US did recovery rather quickly.

FDR did know about the attack. An aide said to him months before the attack: "To embargo Japan of oil would get us in this war easaly and we would avoid the unpleasentness of critisim from allying with the Soviet Union."

What critisicm are you talking about? The USSR was a MAJOR help during World War II, and completely destroyed Hitler after Stalingrad, if we did not ally them, then you can sure as hell bet that we'd have a long LONG war ahead of us, giving Hitler time to develop the A-Bomb as well. What evidence to you have of an aide of his saying this to him? If you are going to post something like that then show your source, or dont post it. I have never heard of an aid saying that, the only reason people would be against the USSR is simply because they are Socialist, thats right, not Communist, and American propaganda just helped make Americans even more ignorant then they already are on the subject.
