Churchill's Warning:

There was a passage from Churchill's speech condemning the Munich Agreement of September 1938 which sprang to mind a few weeks ago. In many ways it mirrors the tragic folly of the Iran nuclear agreement. In it Churchill mentions Czechoslovakia's isolation and her betrayal by the European democracies which, in many instances, resembles Israel's position today with the notable exception that Israel is highly armed and far better led:

On October 3rd 1938 with Britain still singing the praises of "Good Old Neville", Churchill rose to address the House of Commons and quickly punctured the euphoria. Amid catcalls and roars of “rude!” and “nonsense!” and "sit down!" he said, “.....we have sustained a total and unmitigated defeat …the German dictator, instead of snatching his victuals from the table, has been content to have them served to him course by course … All is over. Silent, mournful, abandoned, broken, Czechoslovakia recedes into darkness. She has suffered in every respect by her association with the Western democracies.” Ignoring the uproar around him, he gave a stern warning, “Do not suppose this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year, unless, by a supreme recovery of our moral health and martial vigor, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time.”

Given the weak state of Britain's defenses it would have made perfect sense to come to an arrangement with Hitler but Churchill understood the absolute evil of Hitler and his Nazis in a way that others did not. It is inconceivable to me that the P5+1 are incapable of recognizing the absolute evil of the Iranian regime's Islamic supremacist ideology particularly since, unlike Hitler, it does not even bother to hide it.
Those who are in favor of this agreement are guilty of a crime against humanity; a crime so great and so grievous and so universal that humanity itself could well be extinguished because of it. This is why fierce opposition to this baleful arrangement must go on until it is revoked and replaced with one which does not make us prey to the apocalyptic ideology of the world's largest sponsor of international terror.
