Let's talk Appeasement

First some definitions of appeasement:

1)The policy of granting concessions to potential enemies to maintain peace; 2) To yield or concede to the belligerent demands of a nation, group or individual in a conciliatory effort, often at the expense of principles or justice.

In the weeks ahead, I will be focusing on the political doctrine of appeasement--past, present and (potential effects on our) future.

But for now, over at American Digest, Mr. Van der Leun has posted a wonderful video example of appeasment at its most horrifying best, from the annals of recent history. Priceless.

Can we really afford, as a country, to elect people to public office who will take us back to the policies of appeasement on the local, national or international scenes? Or who believe that all causes are morally equal (moral equivalence) and who deny the concept of a just war?

God have mercy on us if we do.
