I always try to consider what history seems to teach us, and if you want a good historic lesson, read about why the name Chamberlain is synonymous with APPEASEMENT, and what that failed policy got us-- namely World War II. Chamberlain came up through the British political ranks and at one time was Prime Minister. When Hitler gained complete power in Germany, and began his saber rattling, Chamberlain did everything except giving old Adolph a BJ in the middle of Picadilly Circus, in order to get Hitler's agreement to forego aggression throughout Europe. The signed piece of paper was not worth anything ecxcept to be used perhaps, as toilet paper. This was supposed to give all of Europe "peace in our time". You know the rest of the story.
Now fast forward to the present. We now have another madman, attempting to become the modern day successful model of Hitler. We have Ahmedinejad of Iran driving to make his country a nuclear power, and a worldwide power broker, by threat of leading a worldwide Islamist jihad. We also have the leader of the free world, President Obama, beginning an appeasement dance with Ahmedinejad, as did Chamberlain with Hitler. My gut feel is that we are going to wind up the same way, as did Europe and the Allies in the late 1930's.
Chmberlain's "peace in our time" policy is now Obama's "new diplomacy".
Perhaps we should call it, "PEACE THROUGH WEAKNESS".
GOD, Help Us!!
