Ignorance on Appeasement

I have a lot more respect for Chris Matthews now..



And a note: Chamberlain's appeasement of Hitler in 1938 was wrong, but that shouldn't lead us to believe that it was stupid, or that the principles involved weren't complicated.

All he did was apply the legal/moral principle established by Woodrow Wilson of self-determination in the case of the Sudeten Germans of Czechoslovakia. If you believe self-determination is an inviolable natural right,that the right of a people to choose their own country is absolute, then you believe in Munich.

... although I was quite surprised to see that Matthews had some depth. Usually he's the king of sensationalism.
