History: You’d Think We’d Learn

Everyone living in a country that has running water has heard the expression, “History repeats itself.” We have also heard the phrase, “Learn from history – to avoid it repeating itself.”

But then humanists come into the equation. They are like an anvil tied to a swimmer, preventing him from being able to swim.

Looking back at Munich:

HISTORIANS will look back at this weekend’s cease-fire agreement in Lebanon as a pivotal moment in the war on terror. It is pivotal in the same sense that the Munich agreement between Adolf Hitler and Neville Chamberlain was pivotal in an earlier battle against the enemies of freedom. The accord in October 1938 revealed to the world that the solidarity of the Western allies was a sham, and that the balance of power had shifted to the fascist dictators.

Resolution 1701 shows that, for the time being at least, the balance has likewise shifted to the terrorists and their state sponsors. Like Munich, it marks the triumph of the principle of putting off until tomorrow what needs to be done today. Like Munich, it will mean not peace in our time, but a bigger war in our future.

Byron at Hot Air says, “And the ceasefire bought us bolder fascists:”

SYRIA has warned Israel that the occupation of the Golan Heights “cannot last forever” and said Syrians will emulate Hizbollah to recover their land.

“We say to the forces occupying our land that our people warn you that they will not allow our land to be occupied forever,” the government’s daily Ath-Thawra said.

“You must understand that our people will fight the way the Lebanese resistance (Hizbollah) fought you,” it added.

“Our people will fight you … on every inch of the Golan,” it said.

However, the newspaper urged decision-makers in Israel “to open up to new perspectives”, noting that some in the Jewish state were in favour of making peace with Syria.

Byron responds, “That last part is just a cynical play to the Israeli left which, like the American left, is mostly full of narcisstic dolts who don’t believe the world is dangerous as long their own country keeps its sword in the sheath. And it’s likely to work to some extent. You can’t overestimate the weakness and gullibility of the left. You just can’t.”

Where is our Churchill? Maybe he’s being pushed out of office like Churchill was because he was despised by the left so much. Maybe the left is so full of hate that they will push him out of office no matter the cost to the country he defends.
