"Peace for our Time"
"My good friends, this is the second time there has come back from Germany to Downing Street peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Now I recommend you go home, and sleep quietly in your beds." ~Neville Chamberlain, 30 September 1938
"We will support democracy from Asia to Africa, from the Americas to the Middle East, because our interests and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. And we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the marginalized, the victims of prejudice. Not out of mere charity, but because peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes." ~Barack Obama, 21 January 2012
Who is this man's speech writer? Advisor? Hello? Beuller? Beuller?
Does this Administration really want any inferences drawn between Chamberlain's appeasement foreign policy and Obama...?
