NATO'S LAST CHANCE The West Should Invite Russia to Join NATO ...

Let Russia join NATO - Los Angeles Times

There is only one choice! end all this! Invite Russia to join NATO. This is not a new idea. Once upon a time, it was openly entertained in diplomatic circles East and West. In late 1991, the final days of the U.S.S.R Boris Yeltsin stunned a NATO meeting by sending a letter with this unilateral declaration: "Today we are raising a question of Russia's membership in NATO." Tom Friedman reported for the New York Times at the time, were "too taken aback ... to give any coherent response." In the ensuing years, as Yeltsin with characteristic bravura continued to raise the prospect, the West kept fumbling for a reply.

Even Putin, in his first days in the Kremlin, seized on the issue. Instead of taking the perfect opportunity to unite the world Reagan and at least the Bush's chose to make a worse enemy of Russia and widen the gap between the west and Russia by instigating them to war.We had the perfect opportunity to unite the world in peace and our past leaders chose to divide it further by trying to rule the world.

We must put an end to this desire to rearm to fight each other, threaten each other, dominate each other. World unity is the only way for a successful future. The Nobel prize winners must come together and bring to the forefront around the world the dire danger to us and the planet if we continue down the road of an unsurvivable world war! We must somehow convey to them that are respected around the world that the time is now and immediate.

We should be using our militaries for the sole purpose of helping and ensuring honesty among the Nations of the world. There can be no action taken without the knowledge and complicity of all Nations that have the future of man and the planet as their goal. We should be using our militaries not to wage war but to wage peace. Our military efforts after the tsunami were a shining example of the way our militaries should be used in the future. The world as a whole must be made to realize the fragility of our situation.

We can make this work despite the tenuous situation we have put ourselves in. With that said we must proceed and work as a world unit. It will not work as separate competitive entities as we have done in the past. We must Proceed into the future as one. We must proceed into the future with the future life of man and the planet as our only goal. Nothing less than the survival of man and the planet are at stake. Shortly the planets life sustaining ecosystems will no longer have the ability to sustain the current population of man. We can not afford to destroy them altogether as another war would do. It is imperative to me that we unite with Russia and I believe we can do that with President Obama!

Let Russia join NATO! * With the advent of President Obama We now have a chance at a future despite Bush's damage! America America God shed his grace on thee! Now crown they good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea! That includes the worlds people. All the seas all the oceans, the entire world. Our future is dependent on us coming together!

We are all interdependent. We are one like it or not. We are all, all life, part of the planet we call earth! We are all part of that one organism called earth! Under Bush we had the worst, the divider, the destroyer. Under Obama MLK's words now ring true "The Greatest among you shall be your servant" He is the guiding light we have been waiting for to lead us out of the dark tunnel Bush has us, the entire world in! This is not only Obama's time this is our time and Obama can lead the way if given the chance.

Obama has already made a difference in the middle east. The entire world is prepared to work with Obama the uniter! He can lead but the world must follow! It is up to all of us collectively! That means Russia! That means China! The alternative is fuerther division! War Destruction! No future!

Yes, Russia should join NATO.

Love that Prez O reached out to Iran. It's great having a Prez without the *Axis Of Evil* mentality!

You have noble intentions, my friend. Unfortunately it will never come to pass. America seeks world domination. Their 'my way or the highway' mentality is what will usher in their demise.

As for Obama: His actions in the Middle-East are only cursory, and put forth as window dressing. Sooner or later, they too, will be realizing what many Americans are starting to see. They will see him as a rhetorical blow-hard, the consumate con-man.

With every Hellfire missile fired into Pakistan from unmanned aerial drones, and every troop escalation, and every bomb dropped on innocent civilians, they will come to see who is really pulling his strings... The American Corporate Plutocracy.

It's ludicrous to say, "We want peace so bad, we'll kill you to obtain it". It's an argument without legs. How will you feel if the rest of the world suddenly bands together to take out the bully? What if they use the same logic? What if they say, "Y'all are no better than the Taliban or al Qaeda"? What argument can we counter with? "God shed his Grace on thee"? I don't think so. Can anyone with his right mind, feel God is somehow delighted with all the death and destruction we have rained down on innocents?

God help us!

Love it Karen
Bush blew the perfect chance to unite the world instead he wanted to dominate it. If they give Obama the chance he will unite us and we will have a chance at a future!

Ichabod said...

I wasn't aware of Boris's overtures.

All we hear is the downside of any other country that appears to threaten the balance of power, yet in my experience having known, broken bread and drinking with Russians, the ones I met were fine people.

Let them join or just disband Nato.

an average patriot said...

I agree with you Brother

Sorry I took so long. I have been outside burning branches from the storm and a guy just finished cutting down one of our trees. I just got off the phone with my lifer son who uses my ear.

Anyway you know the world was rallying behind Russia to take bully Bush on. I am really hoping Obama can turn this around and unite enough with us.

We really have our work cut out for us if we are to have a future and you have to hope countries like Russia realize we need each other!

Hi Ichabod
I am really hoping they come to their senses. We need each other. We have to avoid war, our weapons are too potent now.
I wish they would wake up! The so called Islamists are going to kill us all one at a time unless we unite. This is still just barely beginning!

landsker said...

Hi Jim,
Not sure about the Islamists plotting to kill us all,(I think they just want we *infidels* to get the flock way from their turf:) but I do know that the Russians and Iranians (and the `stans) have sizeable oil and gas reserves, whilst the US and Europe have virtually none.... But we do have a hugely expensive military, and they will find Bin Laden, the WMD`s, the sugar-plum fairy, ...any day now.

The idea of Russia joining NATO?... Some might opine that they already have many personel working within that organisation, and certainly they probably know that NATO would love to "make secure" the Caspian oil basin..;)

Whatever the Russians may say in Public, they are never going to invite Exxon or Chevron to take over their oil fields.

an average patriot said...

Hi Landsker
It is sick but all around the world all the wars and confrontation is all about gas and oil.
We are creating the so called terrorist problem. All they ever wanted from day one as they said was us off their soil so what did Bush do he attacked them.
You know right or wrong we are not smart enough to get off their land so this too is just beginning!
