Back in November, Mathias Dšpfner (CEO of German publisher Axel Springer AG) wrote a scathing editorial regarding European appeasement. (Thanks to Mom.)
The original article is written in German, as you’d probably expect, but thanks to Altavista and Systran, you can get a good idea of what the author said.
Note: There is an English translation floating around that inflates a couple of the details. Why people do this, I have no idea, but fortunately it doesn’t change the message. Snopes has the scoop, with the somewhat inaccurate but more readable translation floating around in email.
