Well, Mutually Assured Destruction definitely seems to be totally and utterly out the window. And furthermore, these madhats don’t even seem to even be aware of the old Einstein quote, “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

There were some good points in this John Mearsheimer article in Foreign Affairs magazine. I’m not a historian, but a student of history though I surely am. Wasn’t it the alliance system around the time of WWI that actually led to that conflagration? To further encroach upon Russia, I hear that NATO is even interested in adding Central Asian nations. Apparently, there is a clause though in the NATO charter that prohibits such an action (only allowing European states). Oh the foresight of whoever penned that document! But probably written by a stock Western imperialist, however, so s/he then is probably actually rolling over in his/her grave.
