Historical Analogy–Today Sept. 1 marks WWII Beginning (9/1/39)

Worth noting today is that 67 years ago Nazi Germany invaded Poland to begin World War II.  But “begin” is not an absolute term.  Before it there were threats from the Germans (and Japanese, and actions by the Italians), appeasement by the Europeans, anti-semitic pronouncements, and hopeful thoughts by US Senators.

Oops, a lot of that sounds like today!  The countries have changed, the hate ideology has an Islamic twist, the threat remains high.

We must remember World War II and learn from it.
