Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Former Russian-dominated states in Europe seem to imagine that its security is grows bigger as Russia is weaker. Ultimately, this means denying Russia the right to exist.

NATO is clearly a tool to press the russians. What do you  when you are pressed against a wall. do you get more quiet? I certainly do, while I choose where to hit forcefully.

Since security needs of all countries involved are real, an alternative to NATO must appear. I can see only reason for hope: as the american economy brcomes weaker, their military strenght must be reduced. (I dont see political leadership in our continent, so changes must originate from elsewhere.)
