Take a look at a map. There is a land bridge from Poland to Lithuania, both NATO members.

And that is surrounding Russian Kaliningrad. Estonia would be lost of course, but it may be a matter of trading Kaliningrad for Estonia back.


In 1991, "Russia" offered to sell Koenigsburg back to The West.


Why didn't the West take up the deal? Was the west too nice, and hoping that Russia would finally turn into a normal European country like Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Romania, etc?

Ah, history. The West would have taken a piece of land full of Russians. All native Germans were ethnically cleansed by Stalin. Nice chap that he was. Germany would not have rolled in and made the Russians move out. They would hav created a rod for their own back.

NATO military power is more and more looking like a bit overrated! A so called "russian aggression" if it happened would practically wipe out all NATO forces in Afghanistan first not in Europe. Once the NATO troops in central asia are mopped up it would take a short work for Russia and China to completely overrun Europe with soldiers and tanks.
Obviously since none of the above is happening there's no such threat. But the real reason for NATO parading in eastern Europe like a military column clown show is for the real reason that NATO itself exists. That is: political control and interference in other countries exerted by colonial powers of central Europe (France Germany and the UK).
During the cold war, the NATO members didn't have any deterrent effect against the Soviet Union, except for the USA.
Therefore the USA had a deterrent effect, not the rest of NATO. What NATO was set up for is almost exclusively for the exertion of political power of certain countries over others. NATO was invented by the UK (Winston Churchill) and shoved through the americans' throat by Harry Truman. The UK wanted the USA in NATO to bound them against the Soviet Union and ally to western Europe, but most importantly the UK wanted NATO to rule over smaller european countries, and as a sort of scapegoat for European government over their mistakes and their criminal activity.

Yes.

NATO reminds me of a Peacock, extending their feathers in a show of 'look at me i'm so powerful and great'.

In the end it's just a Cock.

Nice fantasy right there. How does NATO rules over the smaller European countries, exactly? By not investing in their defense? By not sending troops and not doing any real exercises with them? By literally devolving itself into an alliance that was about to outlive its purpose? Because all of that was happening until Putin figured he needs external enemies for him to stay in power.

Where in the world did you come up with that?

Russia and China working together to sweep through Europe? How are they going to get there? Safely, I mean.

I would suggest studying up on the logistics necessary for that Chinese-Russian invasion. Neither country has the necessary lift capacity to do it. Sorry.

All the tanks in the world are useless without fuel. Without ammunition. They make dandy, if somewhat oversized, paper weights.

All that aside, China wouldn't, in a million years, do anything of the sort. If anything, they'd strike north into Siberia where there is all that wonderful resource rich real estate just begging to be scooped up from a Russia bogged down in a European war.

Putin knows this. Putin is many things, including an opportunist, but there is no opportunity here. Russia, even with a fantasy China's help, can't take Europe. Over run the Baltic states, yes, keep 'em no.

Yeah, the last few years in the ME are clear examples of that, aren't they? Remember how NATO was going to lose to Iraq "battle hardened" army? You might wanna take a bit of a closer look at the true capabilities of NATO's various member states.
