LETTER: Putin = Hitler

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” — George Santayana (1863-1952)

An aphorism of great wisdom and insight that today so many seem oblivious of.

Those who have even the slightest reluctance to fully support Ukraine have totally forgotten how the second World War began.

It is so clear on all levels of abstraction, and in all truth, that Putin is to Ukraine exactly as Hitler was to Poland.

Examine this clear parallel in whatever detail you like, see Nicholas Kristof’s Feb. 22 column.

The threat to the entire world, as we know it, is clear.

If independent countries of the world do not fully stop the irrational and dictatorial mad man, Putin, we will all pay a horrifying price.

A price we simple-minded fools cannot now even imagine.
