Re: Putin/Hitler

Quite frankly this may be one of the most incisive and informative "articles" that
I have ever read on "The Great Patriotic War" 👍 which is in essence the corner stone on/of modern Russian history.
Then using it as a comparison to highlight the perversity and in this case pure evil of Putin is brilliant.
Ironically Stalin never "invaded" as such Eastern Europe, but was its subsequent brutal occupier
as a result of the drive to Berlin.
Putin's overlap with Hitler
in terms of his utter brutality
and ethnic overlap of murder
in itself has a frightening
echo.
Mean Kampf"My Struggle"
as an analogy is a bit of a stretch, but then again this is a lunatics outline of horror and mass murder which
Putin could fall far short of and still leave a monstrous
crime as his legacy.
Unlike Hitler there will be no "Bunkers as such, which raises the issue that sans his"suicide"
and the total national destructionof Russia what options does Putin have?
In addition Putin now seemingly inexorably swept up in a Tsunami of "My Country Right ✅ or Wrong"now has
even less that he can do that
will not be tainted by even an iota of
"Defeat..
The fact that Zalinsky is Jewish ✡ much less actually previously could have literally headlined "Saturday Day Night Live, "
once again simply adds credence to that Reality continually supercedes
any possible stretch of
our imaginations....
