The world of the 1930’s was not an easy one to live in. The Great Depression had caused the economy around the world to collapse. Millions were out of work. The Great War, in which an entire generation of men were killed, was still on minds of those who lived through it.
In Germany, the Nazi Party was in power. The song, Deutschland über alles was heard throughout the country. It would soon be heard throughout Europe.
War was in the air, again.
Hoping to appease the Germans and prevent another war, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain offered the Czechoslovakian area known as the Sudetenland to the Nazis as a peace offering. Instead of appeasing the Germans and preventing war, it opened the floodgates to World War II.
Very recently, President Obama has been insisting that the nuclear deal with Iran is mutually beneficial.
I disagree. Instead of making deals with Iran and hoping that they will keep their end of the bargain, we should be drawing a hard and fast line. That line states that they disarm and hand over all nuclear weapons.
But President Obama knows better or at least, he thinks he does. I just worry if he will finally change his mind when nuclear bombs, courtesy of Iran, hit cities like Tel Aviv, London, Paris, Rome, New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles and finally, his hometown of Chicago.
Is Barack Obama the Neville Chamberlain of our era? Unequivocally, yes.
