Churchill wanted to keep Germany from thinking they could do whatever they wanted, he felt it would have been better to show Germany that they couldn’t just do whatever they wanted.

    In what must have been a line meant particularly for Neville Chamberlain, in the same speech he announced that, “in my view, the rape of Albania is to the Anglo-Italian agreement what the destruction of Czechoslovakia was to the Munich agreement.” Attlee and the Labour party viewed the invasion of Albania and Czechoslovakia as “the end of the attempt to make peace by disregarding moral issues.” Labour party rhetoric was as pointed as ever, attacking Chamberlain’s policy of appeasement and…

    Appeasement, it didn’t work when trying to prevent WWII and it doesn’t work today. You can’t try to make a deal with someone that you know won’t keep their end of the deal, like Hitler with Chamberlin prior to WWII. By trying to appease Hitler and telling him not to attack it just showed Hitler that he had power and that people would listen to him.
