    Russia's recent behavior is evidence enough that NATO is still needed and we need to push the alliance as far eastward as possible.

    Putin is running around with a rusty pistol, trying to seem relevant.

    With his rusty pistol he just destroyed an exemplarily NATO army, put NATO members against each other;
    and now he is waiting for the next wooden forehead to bump into it, - it seems there is a whole number of those wooden foreheads who are still willing to try here.

    Georgia is not a NATO member. Nor was their military exemplary.

    Putin's looking at the strategic situation. He got away with that Georgian mess, no matter who started it, he got away with it.

    He's looking at Obama and I'm SURE he's smiling in pleasure. He see's NATO as militarily weakened, and politically neutered.

    Russia will do whatever the hell it wants too, and ain't NO ONE gonna do more then talk about it.

    The status de-juro does not change de-facto even a bit. The rusted pistol still has the same capabilities for all de-facto members and wooden foreheads who want to try. Try again.

    For Putin it does matter who started.

    As even BBC accepts there are some who wants to do more, like France, Italy and Germany at least, and quite possible Chech Republic. It seems like they are giving a thought about stopping the madness of military and political confrontation against Russia; not only because they are afraid of the rusted pistol, but because they are more afraid of the madness, like the one expressed by you.

    Clearly a very anti-Russian article..

    1. Russian intervention in Georgia was justified, those regions wanted independence from a suppressive and insane Georgian state. Look at the Georgian leader for some symptoms of why they wanted to break free of Georgia.
    2. Clearly any view that Russia is the aggressor for responding aggressively to the US anti-missile shield in eastern Europe is anti-Russian and bias for the US and the west.
    3. Not everyone understood that Russian unilateral intervention in Georgia was a warning to the west that it cannot do the same without giving Russia those rights, and referring to Iraq.
    4. Not developing a closer relationship to Russia would be wrong of Europe, we should try to develop as good and as stable and influential a relationship with Russia as we can. Any statement against this is just anti-Russian and US bias.. Why in the world should we not seek good relations with Russia?
    5. The US stubbornness over the missile shield even when Russia threatens with nuclear war as retaliation is clearly a bad move from the US, not Russia.

    None of these things were reflected in the article, just the opposite, the usual pro western bias that every UK and American paper takes, rather than a rational approach.. Russian newspapers are the same way, but even worse, so I still prefer a basket of media from many different nations in different languages to get a proper overview of the situation in an unbiased light.

    Yeah, and that rusty pistol could destroy the US and the rest of the world, easily. Perhaps you could consider that before making ignorant comments.
