GUEST,petr BS: War in Georgia (2008) (824* d) RE: BS: War in Georgia 18 Aug 08

the irony here is that in seeking to expand its and Nato's influence the US has actually diminished the alliance. Obviously the US took advantage of Sakashvili to extend the US sphere of influence into formerly Soviet borders. So whats going to happen to Nato, while the US and British media covers this as Russian aggression the rest of Europe isnt as black and white on the subject. The OLD Europe which still has several times the population and wealth of New Europe is not as willing to go to war with Russia over Georgia or some other former RUssian territory.
And that is what Nato membership would mean.
