According to the Arizona Memorial official web site

Navy 2001

Army 231

Marines 109

Civilian 54

For a grand total of 2395 or a number about 200 shy of the toll taken at the WTC and not the "thousands less" so many were saying shortly after 9/11.

Admiral Nagumo (in charge of the attack) was very cautious
so he did not send out a third wave of planes since they no longer had suprise. BIG MISTAKE.
If he had taken out the huge oil fields in the harbor no major american fleet action could have taken place until 1943.
If he had taken out the PT boats and the subs it would have greatly reduced america's defensive opions.
If he had destroyed the dry docks most of the the american battleships
could not be salvaged.
If he had found and destroyed the american carriers not only would america have no shield against invasion it would also not have been able to preform the crucial Dootitle bombing raid that greatly raised american morale and greatly lowered japanese morale.
In time the Japs would pay dearly for Nagumo's mistake.
