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.
