I'm not really getting why Putin is threatened by the expansion of NATO if, as he persists, he's not interested in being an aggressor. Who the fark wants to invade Russia? Who thinks "yeah, I'm going to conquer a shiathole so that I can deal with a population that hates me, have assets and resources which are being stolen by criminals faster than anyone else can seize them, and be the king of misery and backwardsness"?

Nobody else wants you, Russia, if as you keep telling us you're not being arseholes to your neighbours what's wrong with NATO being nearby?

Are you being serious or humorously disingenuous? He wants the entire Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact back.

The latter. That's why I made multiple qualifications in my brief post about them insisting they don't want what you say despite it being pretty obvious they do.

In the Before Times it would have been obvious. In the Crazy Years? Best to make sure

Macron just called to surrender threaten to annihilate Moscow like Napoleon after they run away like little children

I'm guessing the call wasn't perfect.

(Srsly, who describes phone calls as 'perfect'?  Only one person on the planet does that.)

He burnt Moscow to the ground. Hey, it's a start.

First it was vacationers annexing Crimea. Silly vacationers on holiday organizing military hardware and taking over part of Ukraine. Remember that?

Now, he has over 100,000 forces on the border on training exercises, worldwide holding drills and making threats that could end the world, effectively holding a nuclear gun to the world's head issuing demands.

I don't think he understands that he can go pound sand. We don't want his country and aren't impressed with his plans to end the world.

Putin isn't threatened by the expansion of NATO, China is. If Russia joined NATO after Putin went, China can't make a land grab for it.

Pants full of macaroni!!: I'm guessing the call wasn't perfect.

I don't know about you, but I had a perfect trip to the grocery store yesterday. Perfect is kind of my MO. It's what I'm known for. I guess you just don't know how to do perfect stuff phone calls.

Who the Fark wants to invade Russia?

Did you sleep through History class?

Germans (repeatedly, since the Teutons), Poles/Lithuanians, Swedes, French, Mongols, Tatars, Chinese, and most recently Americans by chipping away at Motherland.

Nobody wants your shiathole country anymore. If you'd just shut the fark up and stay in your lane, you'd be left alone.

What do you think NATO is? It's basically annexation, or is the post-Maidan government not a vassal of America?

Alaska, but we did pay them for it, so we're good there, right?

No. He's very intelligent. He got his handlers to pay him in dollars, not rubles

Alaska was sold because Russia -badly- needed the cash at the time, and Britain would've just outright taken it otherwise.

..so assuming you're an actual Russian as you've claimed and don't just play one on TV..

..how friggin' strong is the Kool-Aid over there to make you think that?

Setting aside that NATO is a purely defensive pact, how do you figure Ukraine, (much less Georgia, are you serious?!) is a "vassal state"?

Are there parades in Kyiv where they are waving American flags? You know.. like there are Russian parades in Luhansk and Tskhinvali?

Conservatives can't envision a mutually beneficial relationship.

They are parasites.

It would be laughably bad, grasping at straws like that, if it weren't exactly what an entire country of 140 million is being force-fed 24/7
