NATO expanding its tentacles

I am, of course, referring to NATO expansionism and American imperialism, both of which are interlinked and a threat to world peace and stability. It's all very well to complain about an alleged "Russian buildup" within the borders of Russia, but do these people ever mention the presence of foreign bases and troops (mainly American) in places like Estonia, which used to be a part of the USSR, or Turkey?
Putin may not be a very nice person, and you may not like him at all, but putting aside his personality flaws you have to confront the fact, when you consider what is currently happening in the Ukraine, that this tension and the threat of war could easily have been avoided, and the blame for this mess really does lie exclusively with NATO, not Russia. Putin is an old-fashioned nationalist/patriot, and he sees his country being surrounded.

Ordinary Russians do not want another war. They lost approximately 27 million during World War 2, so security for them comes first. The lack of empathy and common sense shown by people like the foreign minister Blinken and his motley gang of neo-con thugs will be the reason why a war will break out, if it does.
Russians generally do not care about Western Europe, and they never did. Europe has nothing that Russia either wants or needs, so all of the current (and past) scaremongering about "Russians wanting to conquer the world" is just so much horseshit. Stop playing 'Command & Conquer: Red Alert', stop watching neo-con garbage like CNN and FOX, and actually develop the capacity to think for yourself, and actually question the official narrative, because things are actually not as they're being presented to you.
