Kerry’s evo­ca­tion of Cham­ber­lain

The Washington Times Daily - - Editorial -

I in­tend to send Sec­re­tary of State John Kerry an um­brella so that he can carry it about and more faith­fully evoke his dap­per men­tor, Neville Cham­ber­lain (“Iran deal: Two nu­clear op­tions in less than a week for Obama,” Web, Nov. 24).

I do not en­cour­age oth­ers to do like­wise, but if the State Depart­ment be­gins to fill up with cheap um­brel­las, maybe the point will be made. An um­brella would make a great prop for Mr. Kerry while he makes a speech about “peace in our time” — just as Cham­ber­lain did with re­gard to Ger­many af­ter sign­ing the Mu­nich Ac­cords with Adolf Hitler in 1938, al­most one year to the day be­fore the be­gin­ning of World War II.

Sanc­tions on Iran are work­ing, and they should be main­tained or in­creased. BOB SARGEANT Spot­syl­va­nia, Va.
