Obama appeasement Chamberlain style. A Limerick

Obama and Chamberlain: Peace for our time.
Our history tells us: Wage war is a crime.
Appeasement is worse
When warmongers curse
The peace-accord promised is not worth a dime

Here is a piece from The Telegraph(UK):

Britain at War: Chamberlain a hero, Churchill booed
I clearly remember watching the latest Newsreel in our local cinema. It showed Chamberlain returning from Munich with the famous paper with Hitler’s signature on it.

Neville Chamberlain brandishes the paper that he believed signified “peace for our time” on his return from Munich in 1938 Photo
I was amazed to see most of the audience rise to their feet and start to clap and cheer. The majority of the population wanted peace and thought that Chamberlain had averted war.
At the same time Churchill was booed by most of the audience. I was 15 years old at the time.
