    We could have shot him down and started WW III,
    another missed opportunity.

    Another bow to the chickenhawk brigade, making a nuke threat out of sow’s ear purse (full of pigpoo). Some Russian clown who saw “Top Gun”, and wants to be Tom Cruise?? Anyone remember the old “bear” and “bison” flights of the ’50’snd ’60’s, or aware of our own harassment of many nation’s territory, ships, etc??

    Did Varvel ever see an opportunity for war he DIDN’T like… peeping over his drawing board in WayBackWhereEver?

    We can always start World War Three for those who want to use “force” and “be strong” etc.

    I’m guessing Varvel never served, either that or he’s just to partisan to worry about reality.

    Would you compare GW Bush to Chamberlain when he let Russia take Georgia?

    It’s kind of fun seeing NO ONE agreeing with this idiotic cartoon. The sanctions (and, perhaps more importantly, the threat of future sanctions) are having a big effect. Russian growth was negative 2% last month, and the Moscow stock market is falling precipitously. Obama’s doing a pretty good job in a thankless situation, certainly better than neocon chickenhawks like this cartoonist would be doing…

    Michael, I don’t know where to start, but you must read more books on the history of that time. Hitler, even against the qualms of his own generals, made up his mind to smash ALL Czechslovakia, and was actually miffed when Mussolini called for the conference. Hitler WANTED to use his Wermacht. He did not believe England capable of coming to aid the Czechs. Russia was paralized by Stalin’s purging of the Red Army’s officer Corps. The Poles made known to Hitler their desire to scoop up a slice of Czech territory. France, going through 2-3 governments per month, was too screwed up to do anything, and would do nothing unless England acted.

    How would England get those 15 division to Czechoslovakia?

    The irony is that once the Wermacht entered the Sudetenland, and saw the Czech fortifications, they cringed at what might have happened if Hitler ignored the conference and ordered them to attack! Yes, the world should have stopped Hitler in 1938, but who was going to do it?

    the difference between georgia and the ukraine is that the USA has a mutual defence treaty with the ukraine [like wise with japan,taiwan ,great britian ] but not georgia

    I think you mean the loony Right who is all for war this time around. Nuking and all.
    -
    This is not like 1938 at all. Making such analogies are dangerous if you believe it too closely.

    Chamberlain did declare war before he left.

    At great risk, I posit this: did we not in America (in our early days) do precisely what Putin is doing now by annexing land? Are we not concerned that we must now face a like-minded style of rule? And, in the middle of this, we still maintain our secret admiration of those individualistic European countries such as Belgium, France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, England, etc.? Do we not hearken back to having control of our own destiny?
