Ummm, Hillary Was Right

I know Hillary Clinton got blasted for her comment: 
Both Saltzgaver and a second fundraiser attendee, who requested to speak without attribution, described Clinton’s parallel between the actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Adolf Hitler, who resettled tens of thousands of ethnic Germans in Eastern and Central Europe to Nazi Germany before the war.
“She compared issuing Russian passports to Ukrainians with ties to Russia with early actions by Nazi Germany before Hitler began invading neighboring countries,” Saltzgaver said. “She said, however, that while that makes people nervous, there is no indication that Putin is as irrational as the instigator of World War II.”
We have this from The Independent UK: The Kremlin said yesterday it was receiving "thousands" of pleas for help from Ukraine, warning that it could not control pro-Russian separatists in the country and now required help to resolve the worsening violence.
Speaking in Moscow yesterday, Mr Peskov said: "People are calling in despair, asking for help. The overwhelming majority demand Russian help. All these calls are reported to [President] Vladimir Putin."
He made clear that the Russian government blamed the West for the worsening situation, while stressing the need for "dialogue" towards a peaceful resolution. "Kiev and its Western sponsors are practically provoking the bloodshed and bear direct responsibility for it. Those who recognise this junta as a legal power become an accomplice to this crime."
If you follow history, Hitler invaded the different countries in the beginning of WWII because people of German heritage but living in different countries demanded/wanted German intervention to free them and allow them to be part of Germany again.
Well, that didn't work out so well and it ended up killing millions of people.
And now Russia is doing the same thing in the country Georgia, now Ukraine and who knows what will happen after Ukraine.
Is Putin a Hitler...doubtful.
But is his meddling in independent countries seems to indicate that he has the same kind of philosphy of Hitler when it comes to invading/interfering in other countries.
So, Hillary was right....for once.
But, a blind suirrel gets a nut once in awhile and a stopped clock is right 2 times a day, which, of course, is more times right than Clinton is.
Every now and then, even a blind squirrel finds a nut.  Agree or disagree?
