Given the increasing rumblings in eastern Europe, what are everyone's thoughts about the future of this troubled region?

Up until earlier this afternoon, I was firmly in the camp of "Russia trying to boss around its historical whipping boy" but after reading this from Nation of Change, I'm a little more inclined to wonder what on earth NATO is playing at, breaking the "1990 U.S. promise that NATO would never be expanded into the former communist states of Eastern Europe."

I don't doubt Russia is feeling hemmed in, but I don't know if there is any realistic diplomatic way out of this.

I don't know how many on this page are old enough to remember the eighties, but it really does feel a lot like we are back there. 


I remember doing "nuclear war" drills, where we largely did the same drill as earthquake drills, but were also instructed to keep our eyes firmly shut, etc. 




I wonder how this will change the way in which our young people will look at geopolitics....

You certainly would have to expect that anyone with the willingness and ability to overthrow him at this point is not going to be a champion of democracy.



No, but the expansion of new NATO border states possibly gives him an excuse to double-down.


I'd love to know what the Doomsday Clock would be reading if they had a meeting about it at this very moment.
