    NATO hits back at Kremlin assertion that it is a 'security threat'

    Date 26.12.2014

    Within hours of Russian President Vladimir Putin approving a new security doctrine, NATO spokeswoman Oana Lungescu flatly denied that the Western military bloc was a threat to any nation. "Any steps taken by NATO to ensure the security of its members are clearly defensive in nature, proportionate and in compliance with international law," Lungescu said.

    "In fact, it is Russia's actions, including currently in Ukraine, which are breaking international law and undermining European security," she added in comments posted on her Twitter account. She added that NATO would "continue to seek a constructive relationship with Russia, but that is only possible with a Russia that abides by international law and principles - including the right of nations to choose their future freely."

    I think we need to spell it out more. The way it's going it's become a shouting match.

    Imo, this is overblown.

    Russia's military (outside of it's nukes - and they're only good for deterrence) is a shadow of it's Soviet days. G.B., France and Germany alone spend more then double what Russia does on their military.

    IMO, Russia is not going to start anything and neither is NATO. This is just Putin trying to look strong against Western (hypocritical) embargoes and low oil prices.

    No way the latter stays down forever. And when they go back up, Russia should be fine and all this will blow over. Until then, they have large cash reserves and China has pledged to help if need be. It might get a tad tough for average Russians, but I think the will be okay.

    I find it funny that every time Russia comes up, so many people start going all warlike...like it's 1982 again.

    Those days are gone and so is the Soviet Union. By far the largest weapon Russia has is their oil and gas reserves, not their military.

    When things start going bad for tyrants they start sabre rattling against external enemies. When they go very very bad they often attack those "enemies" it usually gives them a short lived boost until it all comes crashing down around them.
    In the period leading up to the war – and, in particular, following the transfer of power between the military dictators General Jorge Rafael Videla and General Roberto Eduardo Viola late in March 1981 – Argentina had been in the midst of a devastating economic stagnation and large-scale civil unrest against the military junta that had been governing the country since 1976.[13] In December 1981 there was a further change in the Argentine military regime bringing to office a new junta headed by General Leopoldo Galtieri (acting president), Brigadier Basilio Lami Dozo and Admiral Jorge Anaya. Anaya was the main architect and supporter of a military solution for the long-standing claim over the islands,[14] calculating that the United Kingdom would never respond militarily.[15]

    By opting for military action, the Galtieri government hoped to mobilise the long-standing patriotic feelings of Argentines towards the islands, and thus divert public attention from the country's chronic economic problems and the regime's ongoing human rights violations.[16] Such action would also bolster its dwindling legitimacy. The newspaper La Prensa speculated in a step-by-step plan beginning with cutting off supplies to the Islands, ending in direct actions late in 1982, if the UN talks were fruitless.[17]

    Dec 26 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a new military doctrine, the Kremlin said in a statement on Friday.

    The new military doctrine says the main external risks for the country are the expansion of NATO's military capabilities and destabilisation in several regions, RIA news agency reported. The doctrine also says the main internal risks are activities to destabilize situation in the country and the activities of terrorists, it added.




    ...and RT (yeah I know it's RT)
    Putin Russian military doctrine
    Russia has adopted an updated version of its military doctrine, which reflects the emergence of new threats against its national security. NATO military buildup and American Prompt Global Strike concept are listed among them.

    The new doctrine was approved on Friday by President Vladimir Putin. Its core remains unchanged from the previous version. The Russian military remains a defensive tool which the country pledges to use only as a last resort.

    One would think about cleaning up one's act. But no....Putin decides to act even more like a bully. His pecker isn't as big as it was when he started his proxy war in Ukraine, so he's gotta take some Viagra to get it up again.

    I look forward to the far-off day when Russia has executed its autocrats and become a true liberal democracy and thus is eligible to join NATO. I would love to have Russia a global leader in the promotion of democratic hegemony. Much has to change before that can happen.
