Chuck Wilkinson: Putin’s move into Crimea like Hitler

March 3, 2014 

In 1939, Hitler moved armed troops into the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia, quickly entering Poland, simply providing “security” for the German-speaking peoples of those two countries. This week, Vladimir Putin sent armed troops into the Crimean peninsula of the Ukraine, providing security for the Russian-speaking people living in that country.

In the near future, it’ll be Mexico sending troops into Southern California to provide security for all the Spanish-speaking people of that region, or Cuba putting armed troops in Florida protecting all the Cubans living there! Will we ever learn?
