An­other ‘his­toric meet­ing’ ended badly

Times Colonist - - Comment -

Re: “Time to talk about Nobel Peace Prize,” let­ter, June 13. Rather than talk­ing of a Nobel Peace Prize for U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, we should re­mem­ber a sim­i­lar “his­toric meet­ing” in Mu­nich in 1938.

It was on re­turn­ing from that meet­ing be­tween Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Neville Cham­ber­lain, and the Ger­man Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler, that a sim­i­lar piece of pa­per was waved and Cham­ber­lain de­clared: “Peace in our time!”

Since he also stated that he trusted Hitler, and Trump is now say­ing that he trusts the North Korean leader to the ex­tent he has de­clared “There is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea,” let us hope and pray that this will not be an­other in­stance of his­tory re­peat­ing it­self.
