The problem with appeasement is it has never worked!

Reader comment on item: Appease Iran?

Submitted by Margaret Hood (United States), Sep 25, 2008 at 12:15

Appeasement brings to mind one world which is "surrender". I believe it was Dwight Eisenhour who said that when America loses its will to fight for Democracy which springs forth hope, prosperity and a good and morale peoples, then it will surely fall just as others in the past have when they lost the will to fight for that which they fought for generations to come.

We must make up our minds before it becomes to late, and foreign boots land upon our soil and crush those who defy them with the heels of these boots. So America, democracy must prevail in the good times as well as the bad. It all depends on if America has lost its will to bring good change to those who have long abused their power in Washington and should get the bad boot out of office.

I believe that Sen John McCain and his VP candidate the honorable Govenor Sarah Palin are the right people to do this. I would urge your utmost attention when you step into the voting booth, Remember 9-11 and those who want to bring America down at all costs. Remember the previous wars that have been fought and blood was shed so that you and I could remain free and pass on the mantel. Did all of those who have ansered "the Call" die in vain? God bless America as we seek a new day and new direction under times tested proven leadership. Stand up America, Stand Up."
