Why die for Danzig indeed?

There’s every reason to assume that US President Barack Obama has never heard of the pre-WWII demagogic question “Why die for Danzig?” The same can be as safely assumed regarding his Secretary of State John Kerry.

Oddly enough, however, their policy appears to draw inspiration from the same ideological wellspring that gave the world the above rhetorical tease.
Even if you disagree with some of the conclusions of the post, it is a mandatory read. Especially if, as I did before reading it and as Mr Obama and Mr Kerry do, you didn't know the story of Mr Deat. And don't miss the final line, it's a doozy, I promise.
