Back in the 1930s, France and England knew full-well what Hitler was capable of doing once he finished building his military machine. However, France and England stood by and did nothing. The rest is history.

In his newest article, Thomas Sowell compares the "Hitler problem" from the 1930s to that of the problem we have today with Iran and their quest for nuclear technology. Sowell wonders if "moral paralysis" will lead us down the same road traveled by Europe: world war.

Today, with nuclear weapons a part of the equation, the possibilities are simply nightmarish. Interesting and thought provoking piece. Included are some quotes from Churchill:

Looking back after that war, Winston Churchill said, "There was never a war in all history easier to prevent by timely action." The earlier it was done, the less it would have cost.

At one point, Hitler could have been stopped in his tracks "without the firing of a single shot," Churchill said.

Thomas Sowell's website. I think we need to interview him.
