The Neville Chamberlain doctrine?

At Right Wing News, John Hawkins aptly characterizes the idea of the United States 'engaging' Syria and Iran as "replacing the Bush Doctrine with the Neville Chamberlain Doctrine." For those who have forgotten, Chamberlain was the British Prime Minister, who in 1938 promised 'peace in our time' after attempting to appease Adolph Hitler YMS"H by giving him Czechosolovakia. It should be obvious to all of you by now, that if God forbid this is going to become the Bush strategy, Israel will be starring in the role of Czechoslovakia.
And, what sort of help are we asking for? We're asking them to stop training and supplying insurgents and terrorists that are causing chaos in Iraq and attacking our troops. In other words, they're committing acts of war against the United States and the idea is supposed to be that we'll go to them with hat in hand and offer them goodies to stop picking on us. Put another way, the suggestion here is that the Bush doctrine be set aside so that we can pursue the Neville Chamberlain doctrine with Islamo-fascist run terrorist states that yearn for nothing more than our destruction.

Just about the only thing Bush has going for him right now is that he has been standing strong in the war on terrorism. If he gives that up to play pattycake with Syria and Iran, not only will it be counterproductive, it would cause the last remaining pillar of political support Bush has in the United States to crumble to earth as his staunchest supporters realize that he would no longer have his heart in the fight against terrorism.
I couldn't agree more.
