Susan Rice 's argument for appeasement is a disgrace. That is why they abandoned missile defense in Europe, allowed Russia to invade Ukraine, dismantled international sanctions In blaming Trump ’s rhetoric for escalating the crisis, she repeats what Churchill’s opponents said about his war talk.

"The U.S. has long upheld international law. This was the most brazen violation of another country's sovereignty that's occurred in recent years," she said.

"For the president of the United States to blame his predecessor rather than to understand Russia is our adversary, Russia has taken on behavior that's absolutely reprehensible, including being responsible for shooting a civilian aircraft out of the skies and killing hundreds of people," Rice said. "For the president of the United States to suggest all is forgotten, that that doesn't matter, that we are fine with one country annexing another country's sovereign territory and we should just welcome them with open arms back into a community of democracies is outrageous."

Rice said that the U.S now finds itself in a "very dangerous moment" as Mr. Trump appears to be further embracing Russia, saying his actions and rhetoric "leaves the U.S. isolated in the world" and our closest allies "wondering if they can count on us and we on them."
