In this article, Victor Davis Hanson relates how much the world stage of today resembles Europe in 1938 at the height of appeasement. The only question we have left to ask is "What would Churchill do?"

VDH's Private Papers::The Brink of Madness: "But what is lost sight of is the central moral issue of our times: a humane democracy mired in an asymmetrical war is trying to protect itself against terrorists from the 7th century, while under the scrutiny of a corrupt world that needs oil, is largely anti-Semitic and deathly afraid of Islamic terrorists, and finds psychic enjoyment in seeing successful Western societies under duress.

In short, if we wish to learn what was going on in Europe in 1938, just look around."
