Spitting in Russia's Face
"Why is it that NATO makes and breaks promises to Russia, encircles Russia by arming regimes which are hostile to Moscow after promising not to, and then asks for Russia's help when it gets itself into trouble? ... On the table is apparently the subject of logisitical support for NATO operations in Afghanistan, where after 8 years, casualties are at record levels and vast swatches of the country are under permanent control of the Taliban at a total cost to date of [$231.6 billion], ... where Hamid Karzai's government resembles a gaggle of gangsters and where ten per cent of the Pentagon's spending is paid to fund the Taliban not to attack. ... So after promising Russia time and time again that NATO would not expand eastwards if the Warsaw Pact were to be dismantled, then promptly placing its hand round Russia's throat with NATO presence along the northern and western borders, and then courting Georgia, whose regime launched a criminal and murderous savage cowardly and under-handed attack against Russia last Summer, Russia is now expected to help", Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey at Pravda, 17 December 2009, link: http://english.pravda.ru/russia/politics/111219-russianato-0.
What's going on here? I agree with Pravda? I again endorse Putin for President. Obama, step aside.
