NATO EXPANSION: FUNDAMENTAL BLUNDER
Former US Sen. Bill Bradley (D-NJ) calls NATO expansion a "fundamental blunder". This is an excerpt from a Carnegie Council talk he gave on January 23, 2008.
So even in 2008 Bradley could see that NATO expansion was causing problems for Russia and in fact violated promises the US made to Russia at the time the Berlin Wall came down.
Russia should remember what the Indians said about the Great White Father in Washington. The white man speaks with a forked tongue.
