Tonecluster on Iran

From the blog Tonecluster on Iran, from a post dated 15 May:At the moment Iran is well on the way to the bomb, and will not be stopped by any means short of war. That is not just a curmudgeonly opinion, it is a historical one. Tyrants have never been stopped by words, words only indicate weakness to them. As was the scene in 1938 so it is now. The europeans think and act as if deals can be made and "peace in our time" declared by appeasing.

To return to Churchill then and borrow a few words: the West must choose between war and appeasement; if it chooses appeasement, it will get war.
Wise words, yet it sometimes seems our leaders just don't see it. The left certainly does not.
