‘It’s 1938 all over again’. ‘X, Y, Z, (insert name of latest Official Bad Guy ) is the New Hitler’ ‘Appeasement won’t work- we have to take action!’
Sounds familiar? These phrases have been Neocon mantras for nearly 20 years now. The great irony is that what they’re saying is true. We are at a ‘1938 moment’ Appeasement won’t work. We do need to take action. Against the NeoCons themselves.
Back in 2003, I warned in the New Statesman that the illegal invasion of Iraq wouldn’t be ‘the war to end all wars’ but would be followed by threats to Libya and Syria.
