    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.

    The loony left don’t seem to realise that, by not nuking Russia early and often, Obama is making the exact same mistake as Chamberlain made at Munich in ‘38.


    As Churchill wrote, with the 15 Czechoslovakian divisions as allies, the BEF could have easily defeated the Wehrmacht.


    Of course, others prefer the historians favoured by Waugh (based on what he saw with his own eyes) who said that, had Chamberlain gone to war in ’38, when France was not ready and refused to join the effort, there would have been no ’miracle at Dunkirk,’ so the entire BEF would have been lost somewhere in the Sudetenland. Then the British radar shield was not yet fully operational, so the Luftwaffe would probably have won the Battle of Britain. And the terms Hitler proposed would have left the UK with their empire, something the US did NOT allow.


    So Chamberlain was clearly wrong not to go to war in ’38: as a result of that mistake, not only did Britain lose the Raj, but maize became corn and the British billion lost 99.9% of its value.

    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.

    @cubefarmer

    Chamberlain did declare war before he left.
