Obama, Appeaser-in-Chief


Allah tells it like it is. Obama’s statement, via Gibbs, that Ahmadinejad is the “elected president of Iran,” is a new low in our groveling to the mullahs. This is pure appeasement, part of Obama’s begging for a schmooze. His Iran team members all know that the election was a fraud, so they’re lying to achieve “a result” that will only humiliate them further, and the mullahs know it.

It’s worse than Jimmy Carter. It’s all appeasement, all the time, from South America to Central Europe, from the Middle East to South Asia. And it’s a guarantee of greater violence, bigger crises, and more American dead. 

As Churchill said to Chamberlain, so it should be said to Obama: You had a choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war.

Actually it’s worse. We’ve got the war already; we’ve had it for 30 years. But we refuse to see it. Which is why my forthcoming book is called Accomplice to Evil.
