“To rephrase a quote attributed incorrectly to Einstein: “stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”
I’m still reading the 1000 page biography of Churchill, and seeing the steps taken in the 1930’s repeated today. Hitler built up the military in violation of the treaty of Versailles and took the Rhineland without firing a shot. Putin took Crimea in 2014 without taking a shot. Both times without suffering a penalty.
Hitler moved on to Austria and Czechoslavia and Putin is moving to take Ukraine beginning with the east, both for the same reason to “rescue” their nationals.”

After a sensational rise to prominence in national politics before World War I, Churchill acquired a reputation for erratic judgment in the war itself and in the decade that followed.
Politically suspect in consequence, he was a lonely figure until his response to Adolf Hitler’s challenge brought him to leadership of a national coalition in 1940. With Franklin D. Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin he then shaped Allied strategy in World War II, and after the breakdown of the alliance he alerted the West to the expansionist threat of the Soviet Union.
He led the Conservative Party back to office in 1951 and remained prime minister until 1955, when ill health forced his resignation.”+
