Worse than Neville Chamberlain

In an interview with Sean Hannity, Mark Steyn argues that Barack Obama is worse - far worse - than Neville Chamberlain.
Sean started by cross-cutting Barack Obama on Tuesday with Neville Chamberlain in 1938. But I thought that comparison was unfair to Chamberlain. He was an honorable man who loved his country and just happened to get the greatest issue of the day wrong. You can't say the same of Obama:
Steyn said he thinks what President Barack Obama did is "significantly worse" than what former British prime minister Neville Chamberlain did. He also stated that he doesn't think the president was negotiating on behalf of the United States.
"I think what happened at these talks is that he and the Iranians were in a sense negotiating together to anoint Iran as the regional power in the Middle East and to facilitate Iran's re-entry, the biggest planetary sponsor of terrorism, to facilitate its re-entry into the global community," Steyn said.
"That's what Obama was there doing."
I think the nuclear issue was a mere pretext, a Hitchcockian McGuffin. Iran will be a nuclear state, and very soon. The joke inspections regime - under which Teheran can block any inspections for the best part of a month - will facilitate the nuclearization of Iran and prevent anyone who objects to it - such as Israel - from doing anything about it. That's a given.
But that's not what the talks were about. Obama's vision of the post-American Middle East sees Iran as the dominant power, and that's what the negotiations were there to finesse. As I said to Sean, Obama's belief that American power and influence has been bad for the world extends beyond America itself to America's allies. So on missile defense he takes the side of Russia over US allies like Poland and the Czech Republic; in the Falklands he takes the side of Argentina over the United Kingdom; and now in the Middle East he takes the side of Iran over the Sunni Arab monarchies and Israel.
This agreement will have bloody and brutal consequences.
May God Have mercy.

Obama genuinely represents a contingent that believes the wrong side lost WW2
