    Maybe not… Hitler started out small. Each time he got away with it, he took bigger chances, The Germans loved that he improved their standard of living and gave them pride again (after their WW-I defeat). Maybe Steve would like us to wait until Putin rises to full fledged Nazi attrocities before we act…..

    Not Hitler, Stalin who murdered over 8 million Ukrainians while the world did nothing.

    After WWI, the Allies punished Germany by dismantling the German Empire, Austria by dismantling the Austrian Empire, and the Ottomans by dismantling the Ottoman Empire. They also chopped the western-most bits off the CCCP as punishment for withdrawing from the war effort in 1917.

    Then in 1939, Hitler and Stalin agreed to split the area between what was left of Germany and what was left of the CCCP, on the grounds that all of it had been unlawfully stolen by the Allies after WWI. Obviously, Germany didn’t get to keep any of what Hitler annexed, but the CCCP kept everything that Stalin annexed, and the westernmost bit had been part of the Austrian Empire. And that westernmost bit hated the CCCP, hated Communism, and strongly supported the staunch anti-communist from Germany who died on 30 April ‘45. And now that’s the group that has taken control of the Ukraine.

    As the cartoon implies, this is making the Ukrainian Jews nervous. So, as Billary is painting the moustache on Putin, the ghost from WWII is trying to suggest to her that she might be making a mistake.

    Republicans call everybody Hitler. Obama is Hitler. Hilary is Hitler. Obamacare is the Holocaust. Fox News called Raul Castro Hitler.
    Why is calling someone literally invading a country not allowed to be called Hitler.

    Historically speaking, the Russians removed the Muslim Tartars from Crimea.

    The warning for Americans isn’t “Hitler”, rather the Fascist/Feudalist bent of the extreme right wing in the U.S.. Putin a “Nazi”? Just nuts.

    Oh, the Germans never invaded Austria on the pretext of protecting ethnic Germans? Thanks for the clarification, Steve.
    And sorry for insulting two of your heroes with one foolish comment.

    Can you seriously believe that right-wingers in this country are all lamenting “Why can’t Obama be more like Putin?”? But such is the level of their mania over the Prez that they are!

    Steve seems to have forgotten that the atrocity Hitler committed against the Jews was not the only atrocity he committed. He also ignores the similarity in tactics.

    There was a short video clip on the TV news showing pro-Putin demonstrators in eastern Ukraine marching with Russian flags. Many of them wore identical T shirts with pictures of Putin on the front. It was eery. The face on the shirts looked just like an old propaganda poster used by the Nazis (Hitler “dignified” and defiant) … the only thing missing was the mustache.
