    We got involved in the colonialist racket (forcefully establishing diplomatic and economic relations with Japan and buying the Philippines from Spain) at the turn of the century because the European nations were harvesting and creating vast wealth and power in their overseas territories, whereas the United States had reached the Pacific end of the North American continent and therefore "capped" its internal development. America has always been a country of ambitious men, and isolationism was pursued as a policy because it allowed us to concentrate our energies instead of firing off in every direction. Once the country was settled, it was inevitable we would pursue further development in other regions of the earth -- to continue growing and to amass more power.

    Would Russia takes the statement seriously that "Only a psychopath not caring to live would venture conquering Europe?"

    Of course. They're not stupid. Putin's a puppet, as with all 'leaders'. His people will rein him in if he goes too far. Look what they did to Yeltsin the moment he mouthed the magic words.

    I fear they may be stupidly confident with hubris and willing enough to try and test nevertheless.

    Stay out of it. We should not be the policemen of the world.

    We're in the process of assimilating those very satellites. Even were it not so, Russia's lack of capacity stands, regardless.
