Charles Windsor, the heir to the British throne, told an individual at the Canadian Immigration Museum in Halifax on Monday May 19th that, “Putin is doing just about the same as Hitler,” ostensibly relating to the accession of Crimea to Russia in March. The venue was a meeting with World War II veterans organized by the Harper government. His press entourage was quick to sensationalize the seeming “private” comment.
Such a demagogic and political statement by the British prince was hardly “innocent” nor an “accident,” as they are being made throughout NATO capitals, Washington, Ottawa and London in the first place. The warmongering statement aims to hide the support of the Windsor family and the Cliveden Set for Hitlerite Germany and to hide the crimes the Anglo-American imperialists have committed since the Second World War, including in contemporary Ukraine, whose government which came to power through an armed coup d’état on Feb. 22, includes open fascist ministers, such as from Svoboda and Right Sector. The same day Charles also met with members of the Canadian Forces as part of Harper’s cynical tribute to the destruction of Afghanistan.
