    Why?

    Chambers was Prime Minister of England, it should be President Obama getting the head slap.

    At least someone is paying attention. Now if only someone in Obama’s administration were…

    Here are four:
    .
    Carter with the USSR. We saw an expansion of Soviet power to client states worldwide.
    .
    Danegild: The middle ages practice of paying off various Nordic / Viking groups to keep areas from being plundered. Usually bought a short peace followed by being raided anyway.
    .
    Appeasement is mentioned in Sun Tzu’s The Art of War as an ineffective means of maintaining peace.
    .
    Vietnam could be seen as a variant of appeasement. Following the peace in 1975 the North began to test the waters for a new conflict an when they saw the US, particularly the Democrat led Congress, unwilling to support the South they invaded.

    What?! Gengis and the Mongols never invaded what is today Italy. The furthest west they got was the Siege of Vienna and Budapest. Aside from that the Roman Empire fell to the Visgoths and other “Barbarians” centuries before the Mongols came to power. Also, the Roman Catholic Church didn’t rise to power until after Rome was gone.
    So, that is likely why that is never mentioned. Your version never happened.

    Going through alphabetically, should have realized when I commented on Luchovich that “Wrong way McCoy” would go to the stupid side.

    Enoki: GHW telling Saddam that his argument with Kuwait was an “Arab on Arab thing” and we wouldn’t interfere. Right.

    ENoki, hit the wrong button first, The North invaded South Viet Nam in 1975???? NO, that’s when U.S. companies using Korean go-betweens started setting up to use Vietnamese labor for imported products!

    That isn’t appeasement. Appeasement occurs when one nation adopts a policy of acceding to the demands of a potentially hostile nation in the hope of maintaining peace.
    Telling a nation that as a third party you won’t act or interfer in their political affairs is not appeasement. Aside from that, I don’t think you can realistically show that the US actually did that.

    North Vietnam invaded the South in 1975 and conquerored that nation. Saigon was renamed Ho Chi Mien City afterwards. North Vietnam also invaded and took Laos and Cambodia thereafter.

    You gotta love it when people route for Hitler to win.

    For the dolts whom use Chamberlain as a historical example, tell me, do you feel that the British could have been able to defeat the German army, maybe with the french?

    The most probable event would be that the British would walk into a slaughter considering the German army was far larger, effectively paving the way for a quick German taking of Britain.

    The added irony is that the action recommended is to copy the European strategy of WW1 whereby you join into large pacts in order to threaten the other country.

    Then again it seems that modern conservatism glorifies war, fewer of our boys die than ever, so why not copy WW1, you get to bomb all the people you want and nothing has to change

    Here’s what Iran agreed to do (this covers just the next six months, while negotiations continue):
    +
    Halt enrichment of uranium above 5% purity. (Uranium enriched to 3.5-5% can be used for nuclear power reactors, 20% for nuclear medicines and 90% for a nuclear bomb.)
    +
    “Neutralise” its stockpile of near-20%-enriched uranium, either by diluting it to less than 5% or converting it to a form which cannot be further enriched
    +
    Not install any more centrifuges (the machines used to enrich uranium)
    +
    Leave half to three-quarters of centrifuges installed in Natanz and Fordo enrichment facilities inoperable
    +
    Not build any more enrichment facilities
    +
    Not increase its stockpile of 3.5% low-enriched uranium
    +
    Halt work on the construction of its heavy-water reactor at Arak, not attempt to produce plutonium there (an alternative to highly enriched uranium used for an atomic weapon)
    +
    Provide daily access to Natanz and Fordo sites to IAEA inspectors and access to other facilities, mines and mills
    +
    Provide “long-sought” information on the Arak reactor and other data
    +
    Sounds to me like a good step forward.

    Forward he cried from the rear
    and the front rank died.
    And the general sat and the lines on the map
    moved from side to side.

    And so it goes. . .
