I agree very strongly with your point about the way hawks speak of appeasement. They talk as if 1938 was the only moment in human history when someone tried to resolve a conflict by making a concession to someone else. Actually world leaders were doing this as far back as 61 AD, when Rome and Parthia concluded the Treaty of Rhandeia. On that occasion, concessions made by the two sides resulted in 50 years of peace between them.
