“Appeasement” Lesson

Jun 2, 2008

In a recent speech, President George W. Bush compared the critics of his war strategy in the Middle East to those who sought to “appease” Adolf Hitler before World War Two.

Of course, Bush’s own grandfather, Prescott Sheldon Bush, helped bankroll Hitler’s war machine, and served on the board of directors of several of the biggest German war contractors. Prescott Bush then turned around and made even more money off the war effort in Britain and this country. In other words, the Bush family made a fortune by arming both sides of the war. The only loyalty that the capitalists have is to themselves and their own profits.

No “appeasement” for them–the more wars they make, the more money they make.
