Learning nothing from history.......once again

A little while ago down at the cube farm where I am spending a few months, a few of the Mensa members around me were discussing Chamberlain. No, not the guy who had sex with 20,000 women. The other one, with the funny English accent. The one who went to Munich in 1938, came back with a piece of paper that had Hitler's signature on it and declared "peace in our time". This was a about a year before the German tanks rolled into Poland. I say Mensa members because one of them had no clue who Chamberlain was. And hence I assume he as no clue of what happened in the 1930s. No clue about the events that led to Hitler's rise and the ultimate carnage of WW2.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on Tuesday called for a "diplomatic surge" including talks with US foe Iran, to help stabilize the situation in Iraq.

"We should be talking to them as well," Obama told the top US General in Iraq David Petraeus and US ambassador to Baghdad Ryan Crocker. "I do not believe we are going to be able to stabilize the situation without that" said Obama, adding that a plan for US troop withdrawals was needed to force Iraqi factions to work together.

Well I guess the MESSIAH OBAMA falls into that camp as well. Just as Neville Chamberlain thought talking to Hitler was the way to go 70 years ago, the MESSIAH OBAMA thinks talking to min-Hitler in Tehran is also the way to go. And the Mensa members rotting away in their cubes are going to vote for this man. This is one more consequence of allowing children to be educated by socialist unionized teachers in publik skools.

Talking implies negotiating. And negotiating means give and take between two parties. So I ask the MESSIAH OBAMA what do we have to give? Iran has three goals right now. Getting nukes. Taking over Iraq and blowing up Israel. So how exactly do we negotiate that? Do we give them 1/2 of Iraq? Do we allow them to blow up 1/2 of Tel Aviv? Do we say OK you can have 2 nukes?

I don't expect any of the mindless robots in the MSM to ask any of these questions.
