RealClearPolitics - Articles - None Dare Call It 'Appeasement'
This doofus represents what is wrong with our sheep media today. They just don't know what the hell they are talking about. Does this guy even know what appeasement is? I would guess not by the fact that he thinks Obama's policy is one of appeasement. Talking to people is not appeasement. Giving countries what they want to stop them from doing bad things is appeasement. Discussing differences and ways to come to a mutually beneficial agreement is called diplomacy. That is something Obama will be brilliant at.
But in the mean time, this doctrine of appeasement continues. This idea that if you don't point a machine gun at your enemies face, you are an appeaser, is quite ridiculous and ignorant. It is more cowboy diplomacy that the republicans like to say is not happening. These idiots are so focused on calling Obama an appeaser that they didn't even bother to look up what it means! Hopefully there are enough intelligent people to stop and think and realize just how idiotic this accusation really is.
But more than anything, it is sad that this country has forgotten what diplomacy is. What we used to be the best at, we now are considering a weakness. How pathetic of the republican party to try and put down diplomacy as appeasement. Pathetic, disgusting, and embarrassing.
