    if you think I'm defending Russia's actions. I'm opposing the use of language by the country's former chief diplomat that's, shall we say, more provocative than it is useful.

    •  Hillary's remarks are very useful (0+ / 0-)

      since Republicans claim Obama is a Nazi, dictator, etc.
      Perspective needed.

    •  The provocation. (0+ / 0-)

      The remark by Clinton was stupid if she did make them.  It was just as stupid as McCain singing "bomb bomb Iran" to a Beach Boys song.

      The Russians suffered the worst loses of World War II to the Nazis bent on utter genocide of the Russians.  The remembrance of that war is a religion in Russia to this day.  And for a a potential American president to imply "Hitler tactics" to a Russian leader is insult and provocation.  

      You are absolutely right in the implication off the Hitler analogy--the remedy to Hitler/Putin is forceful early intervention--fundamentally attacking Russia.
