Comparing 1939 To 2009

It's not a pretty comparison.

It's obvious that the world has failed to learn from history, and has failed to take the declaration, "Never Again" to heart.

Something went wrong somewhere.

And we're back to where we were in 1939.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

If only we could somehow get the right folks into power in the still-free world in time to avert catastrophe... I mean, folks who are the opposite of Obama et al.

Folks who are more like Churchill, Reagan and Thatcher, than like Chamberlain, Carter, Obama, Brown, Trudeau...

The Bad Guys need to be scared shitless of the Free World. Right now, they're not; not at all. They were terrified of Reagan, Thatcher and Bush. They laugh at Obama and his ilk. As Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo laughed at Chamberlain and his ilk.

What's more likely to happen, another World War, with nukes... or "catastrophic climate change"?

Which should we really be worrying about, and spending our money on preventing or at least emerging victorious from?

Unfortunately, too many people know nothing about the world today, so they have no idea of how dangerous it is again, nor of how much less likely the Free World is to win this time around, unfortunately.
