Civilized NATO might want to rethink picking a fight with the lateral heirs of the Great Khan 

Moscow is painfully aware that the US/NATO “strategy” of containment of Russia is already reaching fever pitch. Again. This past Wednesday, at a very important meeting with the Federal Security Service board, President Putin laid it all out in stark terms: 

 We are up against the so-called policy of containing Russia. This is not about competition, which is a natural thing for international relations. This is about a consistent and quite aggressive policy aimed at disrupting our development, slowing it down, creating problems along the outer perimeter, triggering domestic instability, undermining the values that unite Russian society, and ultimately to weaken Russia and put it under external control, just the way we are witnessing it transpire in some countries in the post-Soviet space.

Certainly it is not a good idea to pick a fight not only with Russia. A question is always trying to raise something, not in just issues with Russia in particular but noticed when there is always need to raised something, start it by asking.

Considering how corrupt the last US presidential election was , and I've seen the videos and testimonials, the US should really not contain anyone.
More than 40%in the US say the election was stolen. Many do not speak out because of the censorship and cancel culture.
But it was stolen in my opinion and Biden is illegitimate in my eyes. So NATO should not follow him. I'm European, but I've got the right to say it. I'll not follow anything the US does under Biden in the nato context. Fck that corrupt pedophile traitor.. he's scum. True scum.
