WASHINGTON - Not since Britain Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain signed the Munich Agreement with Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini in September 1938 has there been such a one-sided agreement that affected another country.
In that agreement the Sudetenland was transferred to Germany. This was popular with most Britains because it appeared to have prevented them going to war with Germany. However, Winston Churchill attacked the agreement because it was dishonorable and sold out the Czech Army.
When the German Army seized the rest of Czechoslovakia in March of 1939 and broke the Munich Agreement, Chamberlain then realized that Hitler could not be trusted.
With the President and his family seeking a winter respite from the chilling weather in Washington, it is understandable that he wouldn't want his holiday vacation interrupted by a nuclear missile attack while he was in the middle of his backswing or sipping a cooling drink with the soothing chords of "Tiny Bubbles" rippling through his beach veranda while he soaked in the sun.
But can he trust Mahmoud Ahmadinejab to keep his word? Or as Neville Chamberlain found out in 1939, maniac dictators can't be trusted. One thing for sure, Dr. Billingsgate is staying clear of Hawaii...and Israel, until Iran is disarmed.
