******In 1936 Hitler and Germany rearmed in violation of the Versailles Treaty without active interference by the Democracies.The League of Nations did nothing! Winston Churchill in his book "The Gathering Storm" wrote:
Great Britain and all Europe and ... America were faced with the organised might and will-to-war of seventy millions of the most efficient race in Europe, longing to regain their national glory and driven ... by a merciless military, social and party regime.....There was perhaps , still time for an assertion of collective security ... to enforce the decisions of the League of Nations by the sword. .... Virtuous motives, trammelled by inertia and timidity, are no match for armed and resolute wickedness. A sincere love of peace is no excuse for muddling hundreds of millions of humble folk into total war. The cheers of weak, well-meaning assemblies soon cease to echo, and their votes soon cease to count.
Doom marches on.
In 2009 North Korea launched a long range missile over Japan in violation of United Nations Resolutions and the Democracies will do nothing. The United Nations will pass meaningless resolutions that will "cease to count." Soon Iran will test a nuclear weapon and the United Nations will pass more meaningless resolutions that will also "cease to count." North Korea will sell their missile technology to Iran and the Democracies will do nothing. Soon the cities of the Democracies will be subject to the nuclear blackmail of Iran. Israel sees this coming and knows what their fate will be when the Democracies are blackmailed by a nuclear armed Iran. "A sincere love of peace is no excuse for muddling hundreds of millions of humble folk into" nuclear blackmail or worse a nuclear attack by a group aided by a terrorist state.
Yes, "doom marches on." We have learned nothing!
UPDATE: From The Politico
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told “Fox News Sunday” that he would have disabled the long-range missile before North Korea launched it, saying too many people “do not appreciate the scale of the threat that is evolving on the planet.”
“One morning, just like 9/11, there’s going to be a disaster,” Gingrich said. “I have yet to see the United Nations do anything effective with either Iran or North Korea.”
