Selective Memory

Reader comment on item: [Appeasement Explains] Why Europe Balks

Submitted by Shirley Dobry (United States), Jan 29, 2003 at 11:10

Most of Europe suffers from "selective memory" syndrome. They choose appeasment because they fear retaliation from their muslim immigrants. They have two countries in one. Since they were the battlegrounds for both World War I and II, they have no desire to go to war. Their sense of morality is not of the highest to begin with and they will justify Saddam Hussein's tyrannical leadership at any cost as long as they do not have to pay the bill. The United States is an easy target because of its size and wealth.
