Richard Haass blames Condi Rice for over expanding NATO which created today’s problems regarding Putin’s desire to Make Russia Great Again! After World War One there were new countries that were created out of the Austrian Empire. Even though the Soviet Union had surrendered the Ukraine and the Baltic States as part of the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk they very quickly took them back after the collapse of Imperial Germany.

After World War Two the Soviet Union had conquered Eastern Europe and then gave them up with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Those countries were very quickly brought into NATO. We wouldn’t stop there and accepted the Baltic States as well. According to Zelensky it was Obama looking the other way during the Russian takeover of the Crimea that precipitated today’s war!

And that is all I’m going to say about that!
