Peace with Iran in our time

FOLLOWING HIS MUNICH MEETING WITH ADOLPH HITLER IN 1938 BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN RETURNED HOME AND DECLARED "PEACE IN OUR TIME" AND LESS THAN ONE YEAR LATER THE GERMANS INVADED POLAND TOUCHING OFF WWII.  ONE WOULD THINK PRESIDENTS WOULD LEARN FROM HISTORY AND NOT REPEAT THE MISTAKES OF THE PAST, BUT THAT IS SELDOM THE CASE.  JUST AS CHAMBERLAIN LEARNED THAT HIS AGREEMENT WITH HITLER WAS A WORTHLESS PEACE OF PAPER I FEAR THAT OBAMA IS ABOUT TO LEARN A HARD LESSON THAT DEALING WITH THE DESPOTS IN TEHRAN IS NOT ONLY A FUTILE, BUT WILL IN THE END POSSIBLY ENGULF THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST IN A WAR----PERHAPS ONE IN WHICH NUCLEAR WEAPONS ARE EXCHANGED BETWEEN ISRAEL AND IRAN, WITH THE A HIGH PROBABILITY THAT MAJOR POWERS COULD BE DRAWN INTO THE CONFLICT.  Cartoon by  Glenn McCoy
