RUSSIA AND UKRAINE (IS PUTIN EUROPE’S NEWEST HITLER?), by Victor Baines

March 31, 2014

In 1939, Hitler invaded the nation of Poland under the pretense of “rescuing the German people” who lived there from the danger posed to them by the Polish people In reality there was “no danger” posed to the German people living in Poland—but to Hitler–it was “the perfect lie” to use as the reason to take over Poland—starting World War II.
Now, in 2014, President Putin (of Russia) appears to have used “the same false logic” to invade the Crimea, that Adolf Hitler used in 1939 to invade Poland! And shame on him for doing so! Putin is no better or more moral that Hitler was, when it comes to invading another sovereign and independent nation that borders his own. No one in the international community of free nations is applauding Putin ( a former member of the KGB) for this illegal and immoral act! In today’s Russia, the aggressive modus operandi of the U.S.S.R. appears to be just as alive and well as it was from 1945 to 1988, in the glory days of Soviet aggression.
So what are the people of Ukraine going to do about this situation? Are the citizens of Crimea going to submit to an illegal election in order to vote on the idea of joining Russia? Well sure enough—they did. Now they have been annexed by Russia.
Nostradamus wrote about Russia. He referred to Russia by several names, but mostly as “Aquillon”—meaning “the Northern land”—in nineteen passages. He predicted the creation and the fall of socialism (in quatrain #4-32), the fall of the Berlin Wall, and Napoleon’s invasion of Russia. It is interesting to note that Hitler was also defeated by the Northern wind during World War II.
In quatrain # 2-89, Nostradamus predicted and era in time when “the two great masters (of the world–meaning the U.S.S.R and America?) would be friends, and their great power will be seen to grow”. In quatrain # 5-78, Nostradamus predicted that “the two do not remain allied for long” (followed by a war). If this is indeed a reference to Russia and America, is the time for Russia and the West to become adversaries again upon us now? Well–we will have to wait and see how things develop.
So will the Russians halt their military invasion of Europe in the Crimea, or will they be stupid enough to invade the rest of the Ukraine, or Moldavia, or even worse—Latvia or Estonia—which are members of NATO? NATO would certainly respond to a Russian invasion with a quick and harsh military counter-attack if the worse scenario were to occur! We still have plenty of A-10 Warthog Tank-busters in our air fleet. But would Putin really be that dumb to do so, hopefully not! Presently, the Russians have 50,000 troops mobilized on its border with Ukraine. Is this a psychological ploy and a show of force, or do the Russians have other intentions?
The Ukrainian military is rather weak and lacking in weapons and technology (as well as lacking in man power). However, they are mobilizing what military assets they have and building up their army and militia units in the same type of way that the Israeli Army did back in the late 1940’s when they gained their independence. If Ukraine was invaded, there is no doubt that they would put up a good fight against the Russians.
Hopefully this entire matter can be resolved through “prudent diplomacy”. It should be noted that in Nostradamus’ Epistle, it appears that Russia and America will be important and powerful allies again in the future, and that they will be united in a future war against nations in the East, therefore, lets hope that prudent thinking will prevail!
