In a speech to the Israeli Knesset, President Bush said that anyone who talked to our adversary, Iran , would be like those who appeased Hitler?s Nazi Germany in the 1930s. His spokesmen explained that the president wasn?t speaking specifically about Barak Obama, but American leaders in general.
Using that standard, Republican president Richard Nixon was a weak-kneed appeaser for opening a dialog with our enemy, Communist China, and Republican president, Ronald Reagan was a spineless coward for negotiating with the Soviet Union.
I wonder if President Bush has ever considered that relations with China and the Soviet Union greatly improved after Nixon and Reagan talked to them. Could the same be true with Iran ?
Sadly, the world will never know until this arrogant, incompetent, macho cowboy leaves office in January, 2009.
