A Munich Pact All Over Again

In the Middle East, as in Europe of the late 30’s, the drums of war will keep on beating.
Most references to the Munich moment usually show PM Neville Chamberlain waving a piece of paper and announcing "peace in our time." But the really scary Munich moment took place hours earlier, when these dubious characters signed on to the deal. It was about the West's willingness to knowingly embrace the lies of the thugs it was dealing with, leaving Czechoslovakia to pick up the tab. From left to right, Chamberlain, French PM Daladier, Hitler, Mussolini and Italian Foreign Minister Count.

Rather than throwing Churchill’s bust out of the oval office, Obama would have done better to study the man and his speeches. A month or so after the Munich Agreement, in a letter to his friend Lord Walter Moyne (later assassinated by Jewish underground fighters), Winston Churchill wrote “We seem to be very near the bleak choice between War and Shame. My feeling is that we shall choose Shame, and then have War thrown in a little later on even more adverse terms than at present.”

It took Hitler only Six months to break the Munich agreement and run over Czechoslovakia. According to the new and revised estimates by the Institute for Science and International Security, Iran could produce one nuclear bomb in as little as 4-6 weeks. God and the IDF help Israel, because unfortunately Obama knows no shame.
