      I'm telling you what would happen if China put missiles in Mexico. I don't have any control over what happens in that respect, but that's how it is.

      I'm pointing out that Russia is doing this because it can, and the US is doing it's level best to support Russia through US hypocrisy. I mean, right after Israel kills all those people? Come on.

      My preferred pronoun is 'They', what's yours?

        is within a country's soveriegn rights and it is hardly aggression to defend itself.

        As you might notice, NATO is more than the US, and the Baltic states and Poland have their own independent relationships with the powers of western Europe.  Sure, Russia might not like the fact that Estonia seeks defensive help, but that doesn't make it aggression for Estonia to dothat.  What's next, arguing that an invasion of Estonia would be justified because they had the nerve to promote closer military ties with the UK and France?  Sheesh.
