Ukrainian crisis devolves into Hitler vs. Hitler

Propaganda from Russian media and ousted Ukrainian President Yanukovych claims the country's recent protests were led by ultranationalist, anti-Semitic thugs attempting a coup (despite the real story).

Meanwhile, former U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has compared Putin's military actions in Crimea to Hitler.

There are plenty of valid comparisons to other authoritarian regimes throughout history.

But in light of recently-departed French filmmaker Alain Resnais' Holocaust documentary, Night and Fog, let's hope Ukraine (and the entire world) never sees another truly Hitler-like legacy.
