Have you been paying attention to what is happening in Ukraine right now? Do you know enough history to realize this is an old story: invading another nation on the guise of ‘protecting’ the people in that nation who speak your language? This is an old game for the Russians: Georgia in 2008; Czechoslovakia in 1967/68; Hungary in 1954. But they learned it from another master, Adolf Hitler. Look up the invasion of the Sudetenland in 1939, when Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia in the name of protecting ethnic Germans. Now, do you understand enough history to realize that there are other commonalities between these events aside from the excuses given to invade sovereign countries? There are, and Obama is repeating one of them as you read this post. But, if you do not know and understand history, you will not see what Obama is doing – or more accurately – failing to do.
