When British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain returned from signing the Munich Agreement with Hitler in 1938 he did so to a sea of nearly universal adulation. Only Winston Churchill wasn't fooled. In the wake of the Munich signing Churchill said "You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war."
It took a while before Chamberlain realized his mistake and by then World War II was inevitable.
At least it didn't take that long for Secretary of State John Kerry to realize how he was duped by Iran. Though one wonders if he realizes how complete his and our defeat was.
REUTERS: The United States said on Tuesday it was disturbed by anti-U.S. hostility voiced by Iran's top leader after a nuclear deal, as both countries' top diplomats sought to calm opposition to the accord from hardliners at home.At least when Hitler snookered Chamberlain he let him enjoy his moment in the sun for a few months before Hitler's deceit was obvious. The Iranians have so little regard for Obama and Kerry it only took days! Was Kerry really so delusional that he thought Iran's war against the West would cease because of this deal?
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said a speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Saturday vowing to defy American policies in the region despite a deal with world powers over Tehran's nuclear program was "very troubling".
"I don't know how to interpret it at this point in time, except to take it at face value, that that's his policy," he said in the interview with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television.
"But I do know that often comments are made publicly and things can evolve that are different. If it is the policy, it's very disturbing, it's very troubling," he added.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the highest authority in Iran, told supporters on Saturday that U.S. policies in the region were "180 degrees" opposed to Iran's, in a Tehran speech punctuated by chants of "Death to America" and "Death to Israel".
Obama's Foreign Policy of Delusion!
By now it's a cliche to point out Obama and Kerry's foreign policy delusions. The see the world the way they wish it would be, not as it is. They are not wearing rose colored glasses, They are wearing left wing blinders. The best hope now for peace is that the built in stall mechanism in the Iran nuke agreement lasts long enough until we get an adult back in the White House.
I'm reminded of another Churchill quote that fits: "The Americans will always do the right thing… After they’ve exhausted all the alternatives." We've tried it Obama's way and it hasn't worked. The world is a more dangerous place since he became President and our only hope is to replace him with a leader that doesn't suffer the same ideological blindness!
UPDATE: Code Pink Applauds Kerry
If you needed a further sign that this Iran deal is a HUGE mistake, this photo says it all. Code Pink, the far left anti-war whackos who consistently protest against any action by the U.S. to stand up to war criminals around the world (think North Korea, Saddam Hussein or anyone who hates the United States and kills Americans) had a love fest for Kerry at hearings on Capitol Hill on Thursday:
When these lunatics are cheering you, you know you've done something wrong. The irony that escapes Code Pinko is that the policies they prefer will eventually lead to war and history shows that war will be far worse than any military action which might have prevented it!
