It is funny how “appeasement” popped into my mind. Isn’t that what is happening now? If only one side with disarm the other side would settle down and not make more demands. It didn’t work so well the last time, did it? Who are the Neville Chamberlains of this generation? I remember Chameberlain was quite popular for a time till his “peace” went to pieces.
Would you describe it with a different word?
