    NATO should have been disbanded and dissolved at the end of the Cold War. Not another military alliance exists now in this galaxy or the next. It is an anti-Russian military club. Russia is not a threat to Europe but NATO is a threat to Russia. NATO is nothing more than a self-serving rich White Man’s imperial organization that is reminiscent of Rudyard Kipling’s belief in the White Man’s Burden. Being a member of the club supposedly discriminates between good Europe and bad Europe. In the age of globalization, military alliances are obsolete. Time to get rid of NATO.

      I could not agree more with what has been said in this article. NATO and especially the USA are an anti Russian club so President Mevedev take note. The USA wants world domination and to do that they have to break up Russia who is in their way.

      Ithink you’re Both Idioit’s

      Read your history Since when has Russia ever been interested in anything other than it’s own interests at the expense of her neighbors. She has been at least as impearlists if not more so than any European power. Russia is the Definitive Imperialists.

      You guys are either too young or too brainwashed to remember the whole “BERLIN WALL!” The U S nor NATO didn’t through that up and oh yea how about The invasion of and viscious suppression of the Yogoslovia. Oh and just for kicks its untempted invasion of Afghanistan.

      Russia is no cub they are still very much a Bear and Western Europe as well as their former Soviet “Hostage Allies” aware of this.
