Obama faces a similar threat and he is taking the same tact as Chamberlain. He childishly ignores the threats Iran has made against Israel, he ignores the statements that Iranian leaders have made regarding their right to have nuclear, he dismisses the development of missiles but he believes their purposely misleading statements on their nuclear goals. By doing so he endangers the entire world.
He also disregards one of the basic tenants of Islam. This is that it is no crime to lie to or deceive non-believers as long as the goals of the religion is advanced. Whether this is intentional or from lack of understanding, it does not matter as the result will be the same unless Israel takes out the facilities. If it is intentional, it is an impeachable offense. If not, it is incompetency at the highest level. (Read the following article on Obama's incompetence.)
Ignoring basic human nature is dangerous especially when dealing with tyrants. Obama and Chamberlain thought (think) they could talk to these evil people and make agreements. However, despots and those driven to world domination have no problem lying, deceiving or misleading.
After Obama is finished re-reading the Constitution and the writings of the Founders, he should read history about the rise of the Third Reich and how Chamberlain was misled by Hitler. But we all know that he would never do that. Today his reading list will be limited to those authors who will instruct him on how to destroy America. So by acting like Chamberlain, he is accomplishing his long term goal.
We would hope that any President would believe in the government that he pledged to "protect and preserve" in his Oath of Office. It is becoming readily apparent that Obama does not. Maybe that is the reason he had to re-do his Oath after he did not do it right on Inauguration day.
This President is a scary fellow. Hopefully, we are not the only person who feels this way.
