Those Who Ignore History Are Bound to Repeat it. Santayana
The key example of appeasement in action Neville Chamberlain, the British prime minister who believed in appeasement. After meeting with Hitler and giving him what he wanted, Chamberlain returns to England announcing "peace for our time"
Edouard Daladier was prime minister of France. A supporter of the appeasement policy, he was not willing to go to war despite Hitler's series of pre-war aggression acts. In the early summer of 1940 French armies were defeated in just six weeks and surrender was followed by four years of German occupation.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Tuesday that President Trump's "bombastic" threats to North Korea are not "helping" to defuse the situation. She said the U.S. should engage in diplomatic negotiations with North Korea without any preconditions over its nuclear weapons program.
John McCain says President Trump's recent fiery rhetoric on North Korea, will only ratchet up the heat for a possible confrontation.
Intelligence officials believe North Korea will have a reliable, intercontinental missile capable of carrying a nuclear weapon as early as next year. But to say that, they admitted they were knocking two years off their earlier timeline.
