Is Barack Obama the Neville Chamberlain of the U.S.?



According to Slate, the Geneva accord is a "good deal" that "makes it impossible for the Iranians to make any further progress toward making a nuclear weapon in the next six months—and, if the talks break down after that, and the Iranians decide at that point to start building a nuclear arsenal, it will take them much longer to do so." Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu agrees, but calls it a great deal for Iran.

It's a sad commentary on our President, but I trust Netanyahu over a guy who couldn't even get his facts right over Obamacare. I tend to agree that it is a "historic mistake.," Obama looks to me like the Neville Chamberlain of the United States.

It fell to Neville Chamberlain in one of the supreme crises of the world to be contradicted by events, to be disappointed in his hopes, and to be deceived and cheated by a wicked man. But what were these hopes in which he was disappointed? What were these wishes in which he was frustrated? What was that faith that was abused? They were surely among the most noble and benevolent instincts of the human heart-the love of peace, the toil for peace, the strife for peace, the pursuit of peace, even at great peril, and certainly to the utter disdain of popularity or clamour. Whatever else history may or may not say about these terrible, tremendous years, we can be sure that Neville Chamberlain acted with perfect sincerity according to his lights and strove to the utmost of his capacity and authority, which were powerful, to save the world from the awful, devastating struggle in which we are now engaged. This alone will stand him in good stead as far as what is called the verdict of history is concerned.

No, The President, as he should be called, is trying to do what is best for the US. That is his job. His job is not to constantly appease the hotheaded Israeli leader who has been itching for an all out war for years.

Good job Mr. President.

Trust Iran?

The person in the WH,now known as the CLD (Center for Lies and Deception) is a snake oil salesman as well as being in way over his head. His lack of backbone and knowledge has embarrassed our country on numerous occasions, created various scandals and told or had his people tell so many lies that Americans have no idea what the truth is anymore. He has lost all credibility and trustworthiness. His own party is turning on him.

He should be impeached

@2:54, netanyaho is neither hot headed or itching for war. as a former commando he was shot, and his brother was killed rescuing those pesky jews kidnapped in uganda. any attack on iran, by any party, will cost israeli lives. while the irani president negotiates the agreement, their supreme leader calls the israelis dogs, and their proxies call for the destruction of israel.

Re: Valerie Jarrett, Obama's "most trusted" advisor. Here's straight from the horse's mouth,

"The place to begin understanding the unraveling of his presidency is page 274 of 'The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama.' The author, David Remnick, editor of the New Yorker, quotes Valerie Jarrett, perhaps Obama’s closest and longest-serving adviser, on her hero’s amazingness:

'He knows exactly how smart he is. . . . I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. . . . He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do. He would never be satisfied with what ordinary people do.' "

Aha, now we know what "talented" and "bored" people do!

Any one can predict future events but no one can truly see the future. To all of those who enjoy cherry picking history and repeatedly citing the role of Neville Chamberlain in appeasing Hitler, I will remind you about the Domino Theory that existed 50 to 60 years ago. Chamberlain was also cited in those days as an example of why the US and its allies must militarily fight the Communists first in French Indo-China and later in Vietnam. All that proved was that sometimes going to war works out well and sometimes it doesn't. Personally I will await to see the outcomes of this "deal" before I judge it one way or the other.

"Start with the fact that this "interim" accord fails to meet the terms of several United Nations resolutions, which specify no sanctions relief until Iran suspends all uranium enrichment. Under this deal Iran gets sanctions relief, but it does not have to give up its centrifuges that enrich uranium, does not have to stop enriching, does not have to transfer control of its enrichment stockpiles, and does not have to shut down its plutonium reactor at Arak."

Secretary of State Kerry was for the agreement before he was against the agreement before he was for the agreement. It took the captain of the Scaramouche to make us look French while the French are looking American. God help us. Bye bye Israel ( which is the likely plan anyway). Five countries execute gays, all Islamic. Two dozen allow clitoridectomies, all Islamic. The new new is going to be a real eye opener for the American left.

The description of the so-called knockout game is accurate. "Teen" is the new PC code for black teen. "Victim" is the new PC code for Jew. Bigotry is pretending this is not so. That's how people get loaded into box cars.

Bernie O'Hare said...

It's completely inaccurate and you're both bigoted and insane to say that. Knockout has existed, in one for or another, for decades. Any local police department can tell you that. It actually arose in the 'burbs, and it is still practiced primarily there. It is no trend. It does not involved black on jew crime or anything approaching that. Some have publicized accounts of knockout to vilify young black males. My guess is that the assailants are of both races, it is not race-motivated. You are both a bigot and worse, a liar.

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird says he is "deeply skeptical" of the newly brokered nuclear deal with Iran and says Canada's sanctions will remain in "full force" against the country.

"We will evaluate the deal reached not just on the merits of its words but more importantly, on its verifiable implementation," Baird said at a news conference in Ottawa on Sunday.

He said that because of previous Iranian leaders had made hostile comments toward Israel, “we're deeply skeptical of the deal and the work that's brought us to this stage.”

That doesn't make it any less ridiculous. First of all, the most obvious, Iran is no Hitler. Second, it's not surprising anti-Obama crusaders would criticize this deal. If it was done by a Republican, it would be hailed as a great achievement. The first bilateral talks with Iran in 30 years! I'm not sure what you want - the status quo to continue where Iran suffers under sanctions and continues to enrich uranium? This agreement curtails the enrichment which is a huge step in the right direction. The anti-Obama crowd (and that's what you are, criticizing his every move even if it's a good move) clearly want a path to war and nothing less. Especially israel. Anyone and everyone that has any bona fides in foreign policy applauds this deal as a positive first step. It's yet another huge policy move made by Obama which no other President could get done.

The United States does not make foreign policy to please Israel. It makes foreign policy to protect the United States. As a by product, Israel is much safer today. Would you prefer the status quo where a crippled Iran continues to enrich uranium or an Iran entering into diplomatic relations and not enriching uranium to 20%? I have a feeling you'd prefer the former and all out military conflagration. The rest of America is not with you.

First of all, thank you for the racist remark calling me a monkey. I appreciate that.

Second, Israel is fully capable of protecting themselves and bombing Iran if it so chooses. The hand Iran was "dealed" [sic] is removing the threat of nuclear weapons in the hands of Iran. Sorry you have a problem with that.

Also, Iran very much wants to wipe Israel off the map. So does Syria and just about every other Arab nation, even though Israeli troops are bringing in wounded children from Syria and getting them treatment in hospitals. Israel and the Jews who live there are very much threatened. Instead of having Israel's back, as Obama once claimed, he is letting them twist slowly in the wind.

A peaceful solution involves keeping the pressure on Iran until the drop the nuclear option. We took the pressure off, and there is no way that Putin is going to agree to sanctions again.

Insofar as detesting Obama is concerned, I have defended him when he has been right. He has not been right about much of anything in his second term. His foreign policy has jeopardized our national security.

Also many voters in New Foundland wanted to be linked with the United States rather then Canada. The vote was two fold --- first to separate from the guardianship of the United Kingdom . Then on a relationship with Canada. Many New Founderlanders whom had made a living in the sea said that the election was rigged. So in the end the Canadian government awarded them with an embargo on commercial Cod fishing in the Atlantic and cost many New Foundlanders a living. As the years went by many New Founderlanders emigrated to Alberta to participate in the scale oil business and many oil rigs have gone up on the shores of New Foundland.

We are Israel's most ardent ally in the world. All Presidents including Obama have made that clear. Now because one, he is Obama, and two, he won't suck Bobo's cock he is an appeaser.

Here we go again with equating every criticism with hatred. The fact is, in his second term, he has been a terrible President. Previous presidents did support Israel. This one does not.

Democratic Senators think this deal stinks. Israel thinks this deal stinks. They must hate Obama and be racists, too.

BOH 2:34 - We already tried the crippling sanctions. Iran continues to be a threat because they have no alternative. Diplomatic relations is an alternative and one that lays out an agreement about how Iran can enrich uranium and puts inspectors on the ground. Do you believe sanctions will suddenly make Iran's scientists forget how to enrich uranium? This knowledge is permanent and the only course of action is monitoring their activities. This is best done INSIDE the country.

This deal makes Israel safer. Opening diplomatic relations with Iran mediates and miscommunication or misunderstandings. Yes, Ahmadinejad stated he wanted to wipe Israel off the face of the earth - which can be taken literally I suppose. But Ahmadinejad is gone and new leadership has seen the light.

The Iranian people, for the most part, are decent people who want relations with the west. THis is our chance to put a wedge in the door.

To be Neville Chamberlain, it would require Iran to be Hitler making demands. The USA is making the demands. To be Neville Chamberlain, the USA would have to turn a blind eye to any default on the deal. This will not happen. The comparison is ludicrous and one made all too often by partisan right-wing blowhards.

Where is Denr on this. How could he defend Syria and be against getting teams on the ground in Iran?

Iran Contra was not the first time the Reagan administration Negotiated with Iran. You may recall that negotiations went silent leading up to the election. The hostages were released on innaguration day. Another example of Ronnie's back door deals.

Ben Netanyaho is not a "hothead". He is a warrior, statesmen leader of the toughest small country on this plant. who is educated and been personally under hot fire.His people have been openly threatened by extremest Iran, and he takes them seriously .He has Israel's peoples interest and will not "rollover"on a bad deal.We may choose to not trust Iran understandably , but Ben has no option, they are at his doorstep and out number him in just sheer masses alone. Israel and and MUSLIM country of Saudi Arabia have plan together to combat Iran ,what does this tell you?

That Iran is Shiite and Saudi Arabia is Sunni?

Wait, are you implying that Saudi Arabia is not a hotbed of Islamic extremism? Please review 9/11 and when you understand the region a bit better, come back and post again.

"Don't believe the right-wing partisan spin, people."

Most of the people who read this blog know very well that my views are mostly moderate, or maybe even a little left leaning. But I never drank the Obama Kool-Aid, and refuse to defend a weak president who has endangered our standing in the world and our national security.

There are good Presidents and there are great Presidents and there may be a President that is something still more … A President who belongs to the Ages.

On the opposite side, failed Presidencies have periodically occurred in American history and the administration of Jimmy Carter despite somewhat welcomed accomplishments is considered in this category…By the Wall Street Journal Poll conducted in 2005, the Carter Administration was ranked 34th … Only the following Presidents are rated worse: John Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, Franklin Pierce, Warren G. Harding, and James Buchanan. … Now, when Obama ran for President in 2008 there was a cry from his opponents or detractors that his Administration was destined to be Carter II... But Obama in 2008 had a different take --- he pinned the label of Bush III on his opponent John McCain, the Republican Senator from Arizona; and that statement stuck to McCain much as Cactus prickly pines stick to our clothes when we walk in the desert. And because of his last name is Bush, the able former Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush wouldn't even consider a run for the Presidency in 2012 but some assume he may try in 2016, but maybe not.

Whether we agree or not, a sitting President is often viewed as being there because of the will of God ... Therefore, it is proper for the citizenry in its prayers to God to ask God's guidance in keeping the President safe and in decision making ... The fact is, a failed Presidency is not in the best interests of the nation ... Americans don't wish a President to fail but it can happen ... But what is the definition of a failed Presidency..

Do we listen to supporters who will remain faithful no matter what happens. Or the opposites who will remain critical no matter what happens as well.

Obama ran for office in 2008 on the slogan Change that we can believe in … Yes we can. … And in the interim between the election and re-election in 2012 there has been change … The So-called Health Care reform came to the people " not simply with words" but with political action that a victorious Obama described as the face of Change in America. The question is whether this change is beneficial for the long-term or a detriment… His most ardent supporters say that with the passage of Health Care Reform so short in his Administration Obama has earned a honored place in American History ... Yet most observers in making a critique on the first term are more reserved, are more wait and see. For the present they agree that Obama is no Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Teddy or Franklin Roosevelt or no Reagan, but neither is he a Harding, or Buchanan either … But he does seek to govern like a would be Juan Peron (Argentina) , Hugo Chavez (Venezuela) and Robert Mugabee (Zimbawe) …

However, in reflection we must say, how Obama will stand in history is still an unknown quality as the total record of his administration is still incomplete. With re-election he has four more years constitutionally to work on his legacy before building the next Presidential library.

But All Americans prey that Obama's initiatives diplomatically in regard to Nuclear Iran and other issues won't be a fatal attraction to mediocrity.

"But All Americans prey that"

What most Americans 'pray' for is that you right wing nut jobs would learn how to spell and stop cutting an pasting your vitriolic hate, disguised as prose.

Aren't you throwing around a little vitriolic hate in your posting.

In the end all history is based on point of view ... And certainly to classify my posting above as one of going to the extremes is purely fiction and wishful thinking.

I pray on this Thanksgiving Eve for world peace ... Not giving a piece of ourselves to the world.

“Some advocates of war [with Iran] seem gripped by Thirties Envy, a longing for the clarity of the 1930s, when appeasement failed to slake the dictators’ thirst for territorial expansion. But the incantation “Appeasement!” is not an argument. And the word “appeasement” does not usefully describe a sober decision that war is an imprudent and even ultimately ineffective response to the failure of diplomatic and economic pressures to alter a regime’s choices about policies within its borders,” - George F Will.
