PEACE FOR OUR TIME

Today is the 67th anniversary of Neville Chamberlin's "Peace for Our Time" speech. As Prism Warden said it's "as true then as it is now." [hat tip: Tammy Bruce]

Here's the text of Prime Minister Neville "Naive" Chamberlin's speech:

"Peace for Our Time," September 30, 1938

The following statement was made by British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, in front of #10 Downing Street, London, after his arrival home from the notorious Munich Conference of 1938

We, the German Fuhrer and Chancellor, and the British Prime Minister, have had a further meeting today and are agreed in recognizing that the question of Anglo-German relations is of the first importance for our two countries and for Europe.

We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again.

We are resolved that the method of consultation shall be the method adopted to deal with any other questions that may concern our two countries, and we are determined to continue our efforts to remove possible sources of difference, and thus to contribute to assure the peace of Europe.

My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor. I believe it is "peace for our time." Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.


Little did they know, they'd need that sleep - war takes a lot of energy. And that's all one gets from appeasement: war.

Here's an excellent column that Tammy Bruce wrote a few years ago called Neville Chamberlain's Grandchildren. Its a reminder that "Peace for Our Time" usually means that America gets to clean up the mess, at great personal cost.

On two occasions we were drawn into a bloodbath created by Europeans (and asians), who have had thousands of years to get civilization right and still have a craven need to bow to evil. They stared Hitler in the face, either joined him or did nothing, were getting slaughtered, and were saved by us. We are not who we are today by arrogance or choice — it was fate. We are great simply by the relative weakness and the pathetic condition of the rest of the world, brought on by their own incompetence.

...

Today, because of American subsidies, European countries have become the slovenly brother-in-law who sleeps on the couch, waiting for you to give him his weekly handout and then has the gall to tell you how to run your house. Europe has become nothing more than drowning socialistic welfare states, coddling and supporting immigrants from their former colonies. Leftist guilt and self-hate has condemned Europe into a moral relativism and damning multiculturalism that keeps them from being able to act, judge and take charge.

...

The world supported Neville Chamberlain in 1938. He was hailed as a hero because he brought home "peace" in their time. That kind of peace costs far too many American lives.
