(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- You’ve presumably read by now that Russian President Vladimir Putin has finally found his excuse to sent Russian troops into Ukraine. The Russian president on Monday declared that the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine are independent and has vowed to send in Russian troops on a “peacekeeping” mission to protect the pro-Russia residents of these regions.
Former President Donald Trump described the move as “genius,” effectively giving Biden the ability to invade Ukraine without calling it an invasion…but others noticed that it’s remarkably similar to tactics used by Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
Writing for the Daily Mail, Chris Pleasance and Rory Tingle argue that Putin’s decision to recognize the two regions as independent “has dangerous parallels to Adolf Hitler’s actions before the Second World War.”
The pair argue that before the outbreak of the Second World War, Hitler had demanded self-determination for all German-speaking people in Sudetenland, suggesting that they should no longer be considered part of Austria or Czechoslovakia.
Putin, meanwhile, is making the exact same argument for Luhansk and Donetsk…because the people there speak Russian.
When Hitler made the declaration, the Sudeten Nazi Party called for the unification with Germany, prompting rioting and unrest that forced the Czech government to send in the armed forces. This was then used as evidence that the Sudeten Germans were being oppressed, giving legitimacy to Hitler’s plans to absorb their regions into a German superstate.
“Hitler brought his territorial claim to the Sudetenland to the Munich Conference in 1938, where naive Western leaders, including chief appeaser Neville Chamberlain, agreed to annex the territory to Germany in return for peace,” they added.
Hitler then sent in troops to take the territory, where they were welcomed by crowds of people.
It really is remarkably similar to what Putin is doing right now. The question remains, however, of whether or not this is an issue that the United States federal government should be paying close attention to…
Do the American people really want another foreign war?
