    Yeah, foreign leaders who think they can break countries and then take them over are sooooo annoying to our own leaders who really can.

    Right.. and your success rate is?? The only way to change a culture is to dominate it with people like you. Consider doing something for your country and immigrate, and take your friends.

    The cartoon is right on.. Crimea is a $$ loss for whichever country own it.. Khrushchev knew this when he gave it away.

    The comparison of Putin and Hitler is not without some merit. Both men saw their young countries fall apart when young men. Remember after the fall of Napoleon the Congress of Vienna founded Germany in 1814.

    Hitler as a corporal in the German Army in 1920 or so, Putin as a Lt. Colonel in the KGB during 89 and 90. Later they both became leaders of their countries through horrible means. Hitler used tactics such as Crystal Night, Putin with using fear from terrorism starting with Russian apartment bombings in 1999.

    Now with Putin going into Crimea saying he is trying to protect Russians in Ukraine is no different then Germans living in Poland back in the 30s.

    There are differences yes but right now I think there is way to much on the Hitler comparison then not.

    I though Iraq was 1/3 Americans, same as Crimea is 1/3 Russians.
    Are the Russians refusing to kill their own people? They need to kill somebody, anybody, or certainty of their evil may come into question.

    “The comparison of Putin and Hitler is not without some merit. Both men saw their young countries fall apart when young men.”

    Hitler wanted to lead Germany to world domination. Putin merely aspires to regional domination. That doesn’t mean we should shrug at what’s happening in Ukraine & turn away, but military intervention ain’t an option.

    The real difference is that Germany was a manufacturing powerhouse in 1938. Putin has actually backed off of the idea that Russian industry can compete with the West. His vision of Russia is as an exporter of raw materials. Not much of a long term plan, really.

    OK let say that is true, what happens when the situation changes.

    Yes the USA sometimes replaces local dictators with those under our thumb. Very true.

    Yes this is the pottery barn rule. You break it, you bought it. Only the Iraqis are stuck with the bill and a disrupted country far worse off than they were pre 1990. The USA leave destruction and chaos in its wake.

    “At least America removes dictators, rebuilds the country and gives it back to the people.”

    It’s the least we could do, seeing as how we installed those dictators in the first place and/or supported them.

    O, if only we had a president who could look into Putin’s soul and determine that he could be trusted. Dang.

    Where, oh where, should we invade?

    CCNJ’s say the sky is falling: About the only dictators the US did not support at one time or another in my lifetime would be Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Haidiki Tojo, and that because they declared war on us before we could. Both Europeans had considerable popular support in the US corporate media at the time, but non-whites couldn’t qualify.
