Hillary Clinton—Putin ‘squandering his nation’s potential’ by trying to ‘re-Sovietize’ the region

Russian President Vladimir Putin is a tough but thin-skinned leader who is squandering his country’s potential, former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton said Wednesday, a day after she likened his actions on the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine to those of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s.

Clinton, a potential 2016 presidential contender, warned during her latest speech at the University of California, Los Angeles that “all parties should avoid steps that could be misinterpreted or lead to miscalculation at this delicate time.”

Putin has said he was protecting ethnic Russians by moving troops into Crimea.

However, Clinton said at a closed fundraising luncheon in Long Beach that Hitler had maintained that he was protecting Germans when he invaded places such as Czechoslovakia and Romania.

Now if this sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the ’30s,” Clinton said Tuesday, the Press-Telegram of Long Beach reported. “Hitler kept saying, ‘They’re not being treated right. I must go and protect my people.’ And that’s what’s gotten everybody so nervous.”

Responding to a question submitted at the UCLA talk, Clinton said she was not making a comparison although Russia’s actions were “reminiscent” of claims Germany made in the 1930s, when the Nazis said they needed to protect German minorities in Poland and elsewhere in Europe.

I just want everybody to have a little historic perspective. I am not making a comparison, certainly. But I am recommending that we perhaps can learn from this tactic that has been used before,” she said.

Clinton said Putin is trying to “re-Sovietize” the periphery of Russia but is actually squandering the potential of his nation and “threatening instability and even the peace of Europe.”

    As there is nothing worth responding to, outside her progressively degenerating face, I will say that she is starting to look like a non-union, transsexual gnome. Peter

    This bitch has no moral standing to criticize any foreign leader. She’s in dirt up to her eyeballs, including the murder of Vince Foster and the deaths of the Americans in Benghazi. She’s an errand girl for Jewry.

    I’m sure the Russian people really appreciate Hillary pointing out to them how Putin is “squandering the potential” of their nation. They know how much she understands and cares about what is in their best interests.

    When I wrote this (Isn´t that just what Hitler did in his days ) That is what I refer to Mrs. ZION Clinton in a sarcastic way so she will get to know what others think of her and of what her Uncle Zion are aiming at.

    It’s something for the Europeans alone to deal with, it’s not for America to express concerns over, as America is defined by the waters east and west, and other countries north and south.

    Hitler never had designs on America, but then as now, America wants to muscle in on distant matters which are none of it’s business.

    Israel’s business is with its region, let them amicably sort it out with Iran over hegemony, preferably shared.

    If the continental and regional hegemons were to think primarily of these spheres within their purview, and secondarily, globally, then the possibility of global annihilation, even by accident, would recede into the past.

    Btw, CK, what did Hillary gain from the murder of her own ambassador in Benghazi ?
