Not a bad man, he did what most people thought was the right thing but it turned out so very, very wrong. Let's not repeat his mistake; the consequences if we do will be far worse than they were in his time.

Oh please, before posting reactionary propaganda will you at least crack open a history book and get your facts straight?

Chamberlain negotiated with Hitler because the allies were in no position to challenge him militarily. Yes, he signed a treaty- but he also reinstated the draft and began the largest peacetime military buildup in British history. Chamberlain laid the groundwork for everything Churchill accomplished.

He was not the fool you portray him as.

I'll tell you what is foolish, though- invading a country and then botching the occupation so badly that they now pose a bigger threat than they did before. How stupid do you have to be to pull off *that* trick?

Stupidity comes in all flavors, like yours, what's next ?, Iraq is Bush's Vietnam ?
The invasion/occupation/democratisation of Iraq is Payback to the muslim world for 911, and I just love to see those Terrorists (insurgents is not the correct description) fight real Soldiers, they have no army to put against them only some schmucks that schtick dynamite up their ass and blow themselves up.

have a nice day the finger

The allies were in a poor position to take on Hitler in 1938 because they were in denial about the German leader and his military build up. Right now the radical Islamists are acting like Keystone Cops with bombs in Iraq and rattling sabres in Iran with no real strength. If we leave now, then they'll gain in strength (at the cost of thousands more of their own countrymen's lives) and when the suicidal idiots get their hands on the bomb, what's gone on so far will look like a picnic and our grandkids (any that might survive) will think we're idiots for not remaining strong in the face of a relatively weak but extraordinarily dangerous enemy.

We should have been allowed to finish the job in 1991 with the greater strength of the multi-national coalition support we had back then. After flying 40+ attack sorties and then close air support for ground forces who were stopped well short of Baghdad, I patrolled the southern no-fly for three years while Saddam thumbed his nose at us. Might have been an entirely different picture now.angry
