Newsflash to Obama: Appeasement Never Works
I’m not even sure it is appeasement that Obama is trying. It seems to be more of the ignore it and it will go away mentality.
Check it out:
Winston Churchill once said “an appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”
The U.S. has been negotiating a deal that will leave Iran—which the State Department calls the leading sponsor of international terrorism—on the threshold of becoming a nuclear state.
This is not just bad policy. This is deeply dangerous policy. And this with a country whose leaders are masters of diplomatic sleight-of-hand, where procrastination and deception are time-honored tools of diplomacy.
The Iranian foreign minister’s reported “bridging” proposal does not address the most critical American concern because it would leave Iran’s nearly 20,000 centrifuges spinning in place. Incredibly, under the proposal the US and Iran are talking about now, Iran would simply freeze what it has now.
There’s not an iota of dismantling. Zero. Nada. Zilch.
And in return for doing nothing, the Iranians demand total relief from sanctions. “Our nuclear technology is not up for negotiations,” Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani recently declared.
