President Obama's Munich Moment Has Arrived
Adolph Hitler coveted the Sudetenland with its 3 million Germans. He was prepared to invade Czechoslovakia on October 1, 1938. The British people were weary of war after the carnage of the Western Front in World War I. The popular Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain flew to Munich to meet with the Fuhrer. An agreement was reached without the Czech government. The Sudetenland was given to Germany upon Hitler’s promise that he would seek no further territory. Prime Minister Chamberlain uttered his infamous words “I believe it is peace in our time.” Then all of Czechoslovakia followed by Poland. World War II, more tragic than WWI, was unleashed on the planet. Chamberlain’s policy is known as appeasement, or sometimes referred to as Munich. President Obama has reached his Munich moment with Iran and Syria, for they are one. The Bomb in Iran and chemical weapons in Syria are one for Iran is calling the shots for its proxy Syria’s Assad regime. President Obama does not want war in the Mideast. Nor do the American people. The Mullahs want the bomb and control of the Islamic World. President Obama does not war anywhere. But for an inadvertent verbal slip, there would be no red line in the shifting sands of the Mideast. The Mullahs are blinded by their religion. The President will enter into an agreement with the new “moderate” Iranian regime, which will continue to pursue a nuclear weapon. He will sell out Israel just as Chamberlain sold out the Czechs. He will call it a peaceful resolution in our time. He will seize the Munich moment for that is who he is. It is the culmination of a diffident foreign policy. His first mistake was to diss our steadfast allies Great Britain and Israel while kowtowing to our foes. His largest mistake is current: negotiating from ideology with petty dictators who govern from reality. His second current mistake was to delegate our foreign policy to Vladimir Putin and Russia while he golfed. His third mistake was the shifting line in the sand, a line which was a bluff. His fourth mistake was bluffing when he had no intent to carry it out. The list goes on. His FBI got to Nairobi overnight, but couldn’t find its way to Benghazi. He is increasingly negotiating from a position of weakness since he is shrinking America’s military, the only instrument of peace throughout the world. He is silent on the atrocities committed on Christians in Bangladesh, Egypt, Iraq, Kenya, Libya, Mali, Nigeria, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria and Zanzibar just in 2013. He is silent on the growing anti-Semitism in the world. President Obama will honor his Nobel Peace Prize with his Munich Moment. The Munich Moment has arrived.
