Recognize Putin’s old act

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY  |  COMMENTS
So Mr. Putin is marching his troops into Ukraine. His excuse is that the Ukrainians are harassing their Russian minority. Those of us who study history are familiar with this line. It was used by Hitler in 1938 in reference to the Sudeten Germans who were allegedly being persecuted by the Czech government. We all know what that led to. The West was fooled then. I hope we will not be fooled this time. It’s the old cliche, “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.”
