    Was your vagueness on the identity of the aggressors intended? (i.e. this could be read as threatening Russia or reassuring them, depending on one's perspective on the conflict)?

      I'm not going to get into a discussion of who the "real" aggressor is in the present crisis. For the purposes of domestic political consumption, I think Americans will take it that the reference is to Russia, and there's probably at least some degree of truth to that.

      I do appreciate the irony of the ambiguity, however. Like this phrase:

      ... outcomes have not been good for nations that engage in military aggression.

      Bush's disastrous Iraq adventure comes to mind.
