There are a lot of people including who have compared what is going on with Russia & Ukraine to Germany & Europe pre World War 2.
Unfortunately things being what they are educationally a lot of people really know nothing about WW 2 and how it came about. All they get taught about the war by our culture is:
The Nazi’s were bad for killing Jews
America was bad for interning the Japanese.
So in order to educate our low info voters in a format that they would be able to understand (without forcing them to actually learn history) I submit this short clip from the 1986 British comedy Yes Prime Minister that explains the likely Russian tactics.
