How about because when NATO ignores Russian security concerns and expands recklessly, Russia responds with low-level, plausibly deniable invasions and destabilizations in the states they feel are strategically within their sphere, much like the US does with literally the entire Western hemisphere.

1. we went over this moron. "it's ok for russia to do bad things because USA does bad things" intellectual and moral bankruptcy

first off fuck the usa. it's committed many crimes in this world. but more importantly, your "two wrongs make the right" thinking only goes to show you lack morals and principles. in your world it's ok for anyone to commit any crime they want at any time. the justification being someone else got away with the same crime once, so they should be able to too. it's sophistry and empty contrarianism

it's like "i hate the usa so i have to love the iranian bomb program." or "i hate iran so i have to love american imperialism." both suggestions are fucking idiotic, and it's the way you think about russia and the usa. in reality, populated with people with actual principles, you can hate both iran, and the usa, for their separate crimes. likewise, it's totally possible to hate the usa, and russia, and not give one or the other a pass because "it's not fair mommy, that kid got away with shoplifting too" like an immature douchebag, which is what you are with your words here. by thinking this way you're just announcing your own intellectual and moral failure

2. if NATO did not exist, russia would be doing the same, or worse. why do you blame the malice of one party on someone else? it's like you lack a basic abstract social model of cause and effect in your mind, something developed by most people in elementary school

example: lets say the USA invades canada in 10 years. according to your logic, we can say it's bin laden's fault, because of 9/11, which did this to american politics, and that to american concerns, and turned them into raging warmongers, etc. so it's all bin laden's fault for the usa attacking canada. completely stupid. but that's your logic here

some moron like yourself would agree with this contrived bullshit, because you believe NATO is somehow to blame for what *russia* does. get it? do you possibly sense the social problem you have on assigning responsibility and accountability for what one person does to another person?

another example: i dent your car. you pull out a gun and blow my head off. according to your wife beater logic, i'm at fault for getting my head blown off. because i dented your car

but in reality, you have many choices to responding to me denting your car. swear at me. ignore me. ask me to pay. punch me. insult my friends and family. dent my car back. make jokes. whatever. how you respond to the stresses of life is about YOUR character and YOUR thinking, and you're only demonstrating your own low character and weak mental capacity at understanding who is responsible for what

in fact, blaming your bad choices on who you choose to victimize is called avoiding responsibility. and for you to fall for this lame "poland wanted to dance with NATO so russia had to beat up ukraine" wife beater stupidity, and your other "the usa does bad things so it's ok for russia to do bad things" two wrongs make a right idiocy, it tells us you are person of no morals who blames your bad choices and your crimes on others

your geopolitical analysis tells us nothing about the reality of russia and NATO, and only about your own intellectual and moral failure

your country is probably some broken shithole with many problems all due to local corruption and bad domestic choices, but blind pride means you believe what some chest thumping demagogue feeds you "it's all the usa's fault because they did bad thing {X} to our country in the cold war 50 years ago" and so you never take any responsibility for your own failures, invent fantastic bullshit cause and effect chains of reasoning for why what you do wron gis actually someone else's fault, and you never fix your fucking problems or even admit you created them

some kid hit you in the face in elementary school once, and you carry that chip on your shoulder your entire life and blame all your failures on what that kid did to you long ago. no, you're just a loser with weak character who looks to point blame rather than just fixing your own fucking problems

do you know what the usa did to japan?

they NUKED them

did the japanese whine and bitch and blame their eternal poverty and squalor and local corruption on the usa forever thereafter? no. japan has national character, they built themselves right back up to a world power status. for a while in the last century they dominated. only 40 years after being fucking nuked. and they are FRIENDS with the usa

that's a country with character. you? you are the problem in this world. you are an example of why your country is a fucking cesspool. it's in your two-wrongs-make-a-right "logic" and your wife beater "logic"

for you commenting on geopolitics doesn't inform us, it is merely a window for us into your own pathetic failed weak mentality, illustrated by how you rationalize immorality and irresponsibility

china is outpacing india economically and militarily

india better catch up

if india had any cojones it would also be more assertive on the issue of tibetan independence. mongolia exists because russia could outweigh china's imperialism. tibet does not exist because india could not do the same

2.3 trillion dollars can buy a lot of Hollywood fakery. That's the amount that Rumsfeld announced was missing the day before a "plane" destroyed the financial section of the Pentagon.

Why have all the governments of the world sealed off Antarctica and space from us? It started in the late 50s when Admiral Byrd found something in Antarctica, and all countries pulled their forces out and signed a "keep out" treaty which isn't negotiable until 2040.

The ISS is in a pool somewhere on Earth, you can tell when you see the bubbles rising from their helmets during a "spacewalk" when they bump something (it's difficult to get all the air bubbles out). It's similar to the pools you see them train in, except this one is done up to look "real". Look for the guy wearing scuba tanks and flippers swimming inside the open hatch. That's not regulation space attire! Also the hairspray so you don't see the women's hair being jerked around by the turbulence (they use the "vomit comet" planes which have been made up to look like the ISS, which is why no part of it is wider than an airplane cabin) -- they got enough feedback that it was ridiculous and she cut her hair short (in zero-G? There must have been hair everywhere!).

The truth is being revealed. Some of us will see it sooner than others. Please, look into it yourself -- "Flat Earth Clues" by Mark Sargent is well-produced, concise, and informative. Then go out and replicate some of the experiments; I've seen a city across the water when it should have been "below the curvature" and I've also tested that moonlight makes things colder, not warmer (the key there is if it's reflected sunlight, then it should still make things warmer -- perhaps not as much as the direct sun does -- but instead, it's warmer in the shadows of the moonlight!).

NASA was founded by Nazis brought over in Operation Paperclip, and the astronauts who "walked on the moon" were all Masons, who take a blood oath (Luciferian) which they say supersedes all other oaths (which makes sense, if they've really sold their souls), and who are members of a secret society meaning they keep secrets among themselves, which means they spread lies outside their group. Don't trust them, or governments. Trust your senses.

india and china have many minor border disputes, but also two major disputes over absolutely huge areas that are indeed mostly mountainous, but i don't know why that magically makes them unimportant

these are very large areas, read up:


and then we can get into the issue of tibetan independence...

russia is a weak, dying, crazy, corrupt cult of personality kleptocrat petrostate

china is a huge, economically powerful, and growing militarily imperialist power

compared to:

the usa has problems with creeping plutocracy

mexico is poor and overrun with narcoterrorism

the point? the usa's problems are tiny compared to russia's

and the neighboring country of china is not in any way like the neighboring country of mexico

russia's far east is vulnerable to swinging away from the decaying power and to the stronger power. yes, if the usa was a failing weak crazy state and mexico was a massive growing power, then yes: texas, california, etc might swing to mexico. but that's not the case is it?

china can sponsor fake independence movements, supply them clandestinely

no actual war has to be declared, so there is no one to nuke. even so, if russia decides to attack china on its own, that's a formal declaration on russia's head and china will be happy to respond in full force. not now. in the near future where russia has decayed further and china has strengthened further, and russia's hold on it's far east is weaker and china's expat community in siberia is yet even more influential and it's economic influences much larger

the new countries carved out of weak dying russia like tuva, irkutsk, yakutia, etc. can be satellite puppets, they don't have to be formally absorbed into china politically, if ever. they can be like texas, independent for awhile after the usa carved up northern mexico

does this tactic sound familiar? it should:

this is the same evil shit russia is pulling on ukraine right now and pulled on georgia with abhakazia

kind of a delectable irony, russia deserves it. beijing is an imperial thug like moscow, stealing islands from weak neighbors, but in outer manchuria and siberia, i'm rooting for china. fuck russia that fucking impotent bully

ukraine is begging to get into NATO. all the new eastern european states begged to get into NATO. fuck what the usa or what the west thinks. fuck what russia thinks

does what the actual fucking countries in question think matter at all to you?

only moscow matters? only washington dc? you utterly dismiss the wishes of poles, slovaks, bulgars, etc? that makes you a patronizing, condescending asshole

if warsaw wants to be in NATO, who gives a flying fuck what moscow thinks. why should what moscow thinks be the ultimate point about what POLES want? why? please, justify that. makes beleive you are talking to a pole. tell the pole why they have to stay under moscow's thumb, in spite of what poles want, nevermind americans or western europeans. please, explain

the US would respond with all kinds of measures to address that threat. Like, say, by orchestrating coups..?

the USA of course has done plenty of vile imperialist things. of course. what does that change?

so two wrongs make a right? the usa does something bad so it's ok that russia does something bad? that's how morality works to you? i knew a guy once who killed someone so it's ok if this other guy kills someone? do you have principles or mindless contrarianism as your motivation?

I'm not Slavic.

the only thing worse than a russian propagandized idiot on this topic who thinks russia is the victim here is some airhead western moron who thinks russia is the victim here. at least the russian has the excuse of nationalism and wall-to-wall propaganda. what is your excuse for being so unprincipled and unintelligent on the topic?
