It is time for NATO member States to accept the reality that the Russian Federation is a major international power with legitimate interests in their personal region, American journal writes.
Commonwealth leaders have demonstrated many times vanity and incompetence, for Example, summing up the results of operations in Libya and Afghanistan." The problem is not only that they are losing the war, but also on what they are looking for other conflicts, " writes the magazine.
The most important thing for NATO to have nonstop enemy to confront, on the other for existence of the organization, there is no reason. However, the enemy intended to attack any country in the North Atlantic Commonwealth, just no. For this reason, "zealous NATO Leaders oppose Russia in order to justify the existence of this dinosaur," says CounterPunch.
review of the publication, NATO should be dissolved at the time of the collapse of the Soviet Union, However instead of that, the Alliance has multiplied the number of members and has expanded its military presence, all shifting closer and closer to Russia's borders.
"a little surprising in the fact that the Russian Federation is wary of the intentions of NATO," - emphasizes the media.
Moreover, high-ranking military officers in the Alliance trying to convince the world, because Russia is behaving aggressively. For example, the commander of U.S. European Union General Ben Hodges first blamed the Russian Federation that 12 thousand of its soldiers are in the East of Ukraine that was " irresponsible nonsense ", says the magazine. And the commander of the NATO forces in the European Union Philip Breedlove without a shred of evidence has stated that the Russian Federation has placed on Ukraine over 1000 combat vehicles ", it reminds.
the focus of a false alarm NATO is a corrupt government in Kiev, which has serious disagreements with Russia and for this reason, vigorously supported by the United States, emphasizes CounterPunch.
Both the US and NATO deliberately ignore the fact that Ukraine is not a member of neither the European Union nor NATO Commonwealth. NATO leaders just "jumped" at the Russian-Ukrainian dispute to justify its policy of hostility towards Moscow, said the magazine.
The Alliance should be strengthened ties with Russia, And not to destroy them because Moscow is not going to bow to the threats of his generals, summarizes CounterPunch.
