What about Prague and Warsaw?
The Poles and Czechs are scared. And mad.
So we elected Obama to end the era of unilateralism, to mend fences with alienated allies and make the world love and respect us again.
Except for the Eastern bloc, who backed George Bush. They can get bent.
That sounds pretty unilateral to me.
I remain flabbergasted that my president keeps siding with people like Zelaya and Putin. Unbelievable.

The Neville Chamberlain comparison is one that many people are using these days, but it's really unfair--to Chamberlain, that is.
Although Chamberlain pursued a very unwise policy of appeasement, he also hedged this policy by supporting the buildup of Britain's defenses...including production of the Spitfire & Hurricane fighters and the deployment of the world's first radar-based air defense network.
Had Chamberlain fully shared Obama's attitudes on defense, these systems never would have made it out of the design offices, and Britain would probably have lost the war.
