Afterburner with Bill Whittle – Umbrella Men: Neville Chamberlain and Barack Obama

Another fantastic Afterburner:

Can personal charm stop a dictator? That’s what Neville Chamberlain thought he was going to do, when he implemented Plan Z. Of course it didn’t work, and World War II happened in spite of Chamberlain’s charisma and personal likability. It was Winston Churchill, the pompous and grumpy stalwart, who actually fought the war.

In this Afterburner, Bill Whittle uses this lesson from history as an allegory to discuss how President Obama assumes he can handle foreign relations.
