Chamberlain never hosted a three-day summit on "rearmament" in general whose entire purpose was to deny that "rearmament" and "Germany" were in any way connected.The always-on Mark Steyn on how Giuliani hit a nerve and how you can't compare President Monkey to Neville Chamberlain -- because it's unfair to Chamberlain.
For my own part, I am way beyond that. By the way, I'm growing rather weary of the cheap comparisons of Obama with Neville Chamberlain. The British Prime Minister got the biggest issue of the day wrong. But no one ever doubted that he loved his country. That's why, after his eviction from Downing Street, Churchill kept him on in his ministry as Lord President of the Council, and indeed made Chamberlain part of the five-man war cabinet and had him chair it during his frequent absences. When he died of cancer in October 1940, Churchill wept over his coffin.Also making the comparison unfair: Chamberlain couldn't look 60 years back in history to find some guy who made the same mistake he did, he was coming up with how to deal with Hitler all on his own with no manual and no way to know which was the "right" and "wrong" choice.
