Mannie Sherberg
No statesman of the modern era has, I suspect, known more about history than Churchill -- who not only made history but studied it assiduously and wrote about it at every opportunity. It's sad that, of the triumvirate of leaders who gathered at Yalta, the two who were least familiar with history -- Roosevelt and Stalin -- treated the one who knew the most about history -- Churchill -- as a kind of "junior" partner. Had Roosevelt been less infatuated with Stalin and more willing to avail himself of Churchill's far-reaching understanding of history -- then the miserable twentieth century might have turned out better than it did. Unhappily, we have no Churchill on the scene today -- but we still have plenty of moral monsters in the mold of Stalin and plenty of vainglorious fools in the mold of Roosevelt. Is it any wonder history seems to be repeating itself?

You mean Stanley Baldwin.
Benjamin Netanyahu is quite familiar with that Churchill speech: http://tinyurl.com/7mu3xsm
