Yes clearly Russia is the aggressor.
I don’t know why the Russians are so aggressive I mean this alliance specifically created to destroy them has pushed up to their borders and is going to encircle them Mr. Putin cease your hostilities!
Read also as “countries who suffered under Soviet rule join NATO so that it won’t ever happen to them again. Russia labels this as aggression despite having 5x the military power in the region as the entire NATO task force and US Army Europe combined.”
I know you’re retarded and you don’t understand how interpersonal relationships work much less international posturing but I’ll break it down for you:
Me and twenty of my buddies can stand at the edge of your lawn with guns. I’m not threatening you at all we just made a pact together that if you ever blink at us the wrong way we’ll kill you.
Okay now we’ve brought some more friends with guns and we’re standing on your doorstep. Don’t act aggressive now, because we’ll have to defend ourselves 😉. There’s no need to feel threatened.
Except the twenty buddies with guns have spent the last 50 years being beaten in a parking lot by you, and would rather that didn’t return to the status quo. More relevant, while they have twenty guys with guns, you have 100 guns permanently aimed at you them, yet somehow still feels threatened because they have a big friend over the other end of the street who is providing moral support, but otherwise isn’t able to do anything in time if a gunfight does break out.
If Russia seriously feel threatened by NATO I pity them. Russian planners know NATO could never launch offensive operations into Russia, and anyone with any military sense at all can see that.
Everybody remembers Russian occupation fondly.
