To the editor:
Evil exists in this world, contrary to what Obama and Clinton seem to believe. The Taliban, Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaida all believe themselves to be good while burning books and churches, chopping heads, arms, fingers, noses and ears off, killing Christians and Jews, and forcing women to a subservient role. All the time professing to be for peace and justice.
History tells us clearly that appeasing dictatorial countries, religious fanatics or totalitarian regimes leads to disaster. These individuals and countries emboldened by what they perceive as weakness increase their demands to a point that leads to surrender or makes armed conflict at some point a certainty.
The so called "Arab Spring" is in reality the opportunity for these forces to acquire the means to force their ideology on the rest of us. That is their plan. It has always been their plan. Now they may have the means, or so they think. If Iran or similar actors acquire a nuclear weapon the world as we know it is over.
It would be an unmitigated disaster, if we fail to heed the lesson of history and follow the same course as Chamberlain and his kind whose appeasement of the Nazis threw us into World War II due to his misguided understanding of the nature of evil. I am afraid that Obama and Clinton have the same lack of understanding Chamberlain had. The cost of lives in World War II was in the tens of millions (f dollars), the cost in material was in the trillions (today's dollars). World War II could have been avoided had those of that age dealt with reality rather than have their heads in the clouds.
If we stay on this present course, we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past and risk throwing us and the rest of freedom-loving countries of the world at the mercy of those who seek our destruction.
Just as Chamberlain had "no clue," neither does Obama or Clinton. Chamberlain's "peace in our time" statement is no different than Obama and Clinton's statement of "democracy" in our time.
That is why this election is critical to the survival of the free world. Obama and Hillary need to go.
