Appeasement

Reader comment on item: Appease Iran?

Submitted by Kyle Gosnell (United States), Sep 25, 2008 at 06:06

The concept of Appeasement has been around for a very long time. Employed by usually those who felt they were much weaker than opponents in some way.

A very good idea of it's application, was superstitious natives of most island groups around the world. Many that lived on Volcanic islands sent their most beautiful maiden to be thrown into the nearest vent to appease the God that must have lived there.

I cannot understand rational men , meaning the Society that is the target of an aggressor, reverting to such a pagan method of trying for peace. The next step for the natives would have been abandon their lands and move away. In our world, the moving is impossible, so alternative means must be employed, especially if there is no way of bribing the opponent as is the case of Islam. They don't need our money, that is the bottom line is it not?

So , what are we to do? We know they are intent on world domination, so are we to give in and let them rule to prevent a war? You can , I will not , as I have tasted freedom, fought for it, and will die for it in the future likely.

Appease them , better to shun them and make all others shun them , forcibly if need be, we are not guilty of genocide then , understanding Iran's morals do not forbid it, rather they would enjoy killing a whole nation, just to do it.

To rational minds Iran is truly Alien, as if they landed yesterday in a colonizing ship from some mis-begotten world of chaos, we all would fight such a race, why are we debating this now?, as if they have a right to be the way they are, monkeys can be taught language of sorts, that does not give them the right to kill and be in charge, just because a people can communicate , it doesn't make they have a right to be anti-humanity , that makes them total enemies in my world.

Yes there are several regimes that need to be viewed this way, however they , the Iranians seem to want the limelight, we need to visit upon them, the understanding of that view to the rest of the world, maybe we might see a few years of peace until the next insane leaders come along, with insane "toys"

There is an old American saying that works "Firstus with the mostus" meaning if you blink the wrong way, I'll slap your head off, or if you draw back your fist, I'll beat you senseless. The Iranians remarkably understand this concept, the free world has gotten fat and lazy, so now they, the Iranians intend to see how lazy, it's that simple. As the Islamic say, they waited 1000 years for this time. They have no viable army, or military, they just know the world leaders are fops, it's that simple.
