Historically, Russia does not go around attacking nations. Both Georgia and Ukraine have been responses to Western designs in the area. Russia is merely defending its interests.
Like mentioned before, Russia should not attack Baltics and test NATO. If the alliance does not come to defense of Baltics, then NATO as an entity would hold little meaning.

you can foresee the potential for a flash point with some instigation of local radicals into occupying buildings which gives the pretext for Russian involvement to "protect ethnic Russians"...
If Russia, were to go in and snatch Narva from Estonia, I cannot imagine the Germans agreeing to NATO going to war. They would veto any such action right out of the gate.
