Putin on the Blitz

By Capt. Fogg

Well, of course the media still hasn't come to the end of all the discussion, speculation, mourning wailing and fantasizing possibilities regarding that missing airplane and they need to keep reminding us that nobody has ever suffered as much grief as the families of the missing nor ever will, but I can't help but noticing that events in the Ukraine might be causing a bit of speculation as well.  Something we can do on our own during commercial breaks at least.

Russian troops are massed on the border, obviously fake stories of persecution are rampant in the Russian press, orchestrated riots, people running about with guns and armored vehicles and today we read that Ukrainian Jews have been ordered to register with the pro-Russian hooligans pretending to be a legitimate government.

Just in time for Easter.

USA Today tells us that in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk:

"Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city's Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee "or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated."

The leaflet  states that all people of Jewish descent over 16 years old must report to the Commissioner for Nationalities in the Donetsk Regional Administration building and "register." Non-compliance will result in deportation and confiscation of property.  Nothing for Americans to worry about of course and no celebrities are involved.

Now back to the Mystery plane story in which nothing new has emerged in weeks.  Isn't that exiting?

Is this the part where the the far left Democratic peaceniks and the isolationist, naive Rand Paul wing of the Republican Party apologizes to Hillary Clinton for laughing when she correctly compared Putin to Hitler?

Thank goodness Hillary understands America needs a strong commander in chief who will protect this country and understand that America can't be scared of being a leader who will stick by our allie

No, but it is the part where people indulge in stereotype Gerrymandering.
If we compared every incident of anti-Semitism and phoney public demonstration to Hitler, we'd have to start accusing an awful lot of people of being like Hitler.

Of course that might actually be a good argument -- there having been so much hatred toward Jews in Europe since it became Christian and territorial aggression is the norm, but I'd rather just condemn Putin for Being Putin.

Part of being Putin may be not giving a damn who thinks you're Hitler or Napoleon or even Stalin.
