Ucraina si NATO

March 4, 2014 · Bagat la America ma-sii!, Blegisme 

From where Putin sits, American power hardly seems in retreat.
To understand why, it’s worth casting one’s gaze back a couple of decades. Under Ronald Reagan, the frontier of American power in Europe was Berlin. Then, in February 1990, as East Germany began wobbling, Secretary of State James Baker journeyed to Moscow to discuss German unification. According to James Goldgeier, author of Not Whether But When, the definitive history of NATO expansion, Baker promised Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev that if the Soviets allowed Germany to reunify, NATO—the U.S.-led Western military alliance that took form after World War II—would not expand “one inch” further east, not even into the former East Germany itself. But as the year progressed, the White House developed different ideas, and by the fall it was clear that a unified Germany would enter NATO, no matter what the Russians thought.

The idea of admitting other Eastern European countries into NATO, however, was still considered recklessly provocative toward Russia. The New York Times editorial board and its star foreign-affairs columnist, Thomas Friedman, strongly opposed the idea. The eminent Cold War historian John Lewis Gaddis wrote that, “[H]istorians—normally so contentious—are in uncharacteristic agreement: with remarkably few exceptions, they see NATO enlargement as ill conceived, ill-timed, and above all ill-suited to the realities of the post-Cold War world.” George H.W. Bush’s national security advisor, Brent Scowcroft, was skeptical of the idea, as was Bill Clinton’s defense secretary, William Perry.

For his part, Russian President Boris Yeltsin warned that extending NATO violated the “spirit of conversations” between Baker and Gorbachev, and would produce a “cold peace” between Russia and the West. It didn’t matter. In 1995, NATO went to war against Serbia, and then sent peacekeepers to Bosnia to enforce the peace agreement that followed. This new, Eastern-European mission paved the way for further expansion. By 1997, it was clear Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic would enter the alliance. In 2004, NATO admitted another seven former Soviet bloc countries, three of which—Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia—had been part of the USSR. In 2009, Croatia and Albania joined the club. Six former Soviet republics—Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Armenia, and Azerbaijan—now link their militaries to NATO’s via the “Partnership for Peace” program. All five former Soviet republics in Central Asia—Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan—provide NATO countries with some basing, transit, refueling, or overflight rights for use in the Afghan war.

D-aici.

Acuma… hamericanii au invadat ORICE țărișoare adiacente – Panama, Grenada, etc – de câte ori au simțit ei țeapa comunismului în fundu’ capitalismului.
Rușii n-au zis nimic.
E momentu’ ca hamericanii să returneze curtoazia.

    Lol.
    Ca-n 'totdeauna, înțelegi greșit.
    Nu c-ar fi vina ta; nicidecum.
    Mă aliniez cu Dragoș atunci când el enumeră puncte d-ale mele.
    Nuș' ce-i criticatac.
    Împricinatul e un scriitor măcelar - n-aș putea fi mai departe de el nici măcar mort - eu, nu el.
    Bărboșii?... hai, fi serios.

    Ba eu cred ca inteleg foarte bine, din cind in cind:)

    Pentru pornire, in caz ca nu stii ce-i aia criticatac, ia de aici:

    http://www.criticatac.ro/16122.....-informat/

    Ia sa vedem cine mai scrie pe acolo: vasile ernu, claude karnoouh, florin poenaru, costi rogozanu, etc si etc, de la comunisti la trotzkyshti si retur.

    Sigur, o sa-mi spui ca tu citesti doar ce zic criticatacii tai, de peste girla:

    http://www.cpusa.org/communist.....f-ukraine/

    Sper sa nu ajung la mititica pentru cele doua lincuri.

    Ete că n-ai ajuns.
    Și dacă ajungeai... ce?
    Te scoteam, că nu-i mare scofală.

    Serios acuma.
    Despre Dom' Doctor... (băgai-aș plicu' în buzunaru' dă la halat) ce pot să zic.
    Fiecare dîn noi tindem să ne atingem propriul nivel de incompetență.
    El cu sistemu' sanitar, tu cu politica, io cu lătratu'...

    E chestie mioritică, cred. Nu putem să ne abținem să nu ne dăm în petic unde nu ne fierbe oala.
    În spațiul carpato-danubiano-pontic... doctorii se pricep să pună gresia în bucătărie... iar faianțarii scriu lucrări științifice.
    O fi moștenire de la Leanța lu' Ceașcă, cred.

    Comunismu' în Hamerica e mult supraevaluat.

    Io zic să-ți faci glob dă plagiatură... unde să dai în gât pă toți dă care hafli - în felu' ăsta nu mai împuți gloaba personală cu aiureli.
    Plus că... urci în reiting și alea. Devii referință.
    Că tot ai timp de prostii d-astea.
