A few research links, and a last note on the Bush/Obama flap
This headline caught my eye on Memeorandum today: from the L.A. Times, Negotiating isn't Appeasement, by J. Peter Scoblic.
...if there is anything that has been discredited by history, it is the argument that every enemy is Hitler, that negotiations constitute appeasement, and that talking will automatically lead to a slaughter of Holocaust-like proportions.
(updated:) And one more, from Patrick Buchanan: Bush Plays the Hitler Card.
...Eisenhower, Nixon, Gerald Ford and Reagan all met with foreign dictators with blood on their hands, without loss to America, and sometimes with impressive gains.
What has Bush's refusal to talk to Hamas, Hezbollah, Damascus and Tehran done to make either Israel or America more secure?
