    Pick-up a history book. Stalin already had Eastern Europe. It was created to prevent aggression into Western Europe by programs such as Marshall Plan. Why did we expand NATO after collapse of Soviet Union into Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia? How should Russians feel about this?

    That is our stated intent. If you were a Russian, and you saw all those troops still on your border, would you be uncomfortable?

    It is a threat. Always has been. Why is that so hard to admit?

    not a threat, a deterrence from them trying to cross the border with their troops....

    shouldn't bother them at all IF THEY HAD no intention of taking over the border nations....

    maybe if Russia had stayed out of Crimea, the troops would not have been increased on the border....

    when the soviet bloc countries got their freedom from the USSR, they became part of Europe and the new border to Russia... they are the ones that want protection and don't want to be taken over again by the Soviets/now Russians, is my understanding...

    They became part of Europe? They were always European’s.

    Russia isn't stupid enough to invade west Europe. The world has changed. Most people don't want the world to end and cultures have become a lot more fused because of ease of travel and communication. It's probably kind of obnoxious to Russia that NATO has a bunch of military positioned right outside its asshole.

    This stuff happened before Crimea. These are 1990’s maneuvers. Clinton gave them hundreds of millions of dollars to stop deteriorating nuclear warheads.
