Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the Ukraine really isn't that important to anyone except Russia, and really should never have been staked out as a NATO objective in the first place
The flashpoint here was not NATO, but the EU. I suspect the US foreign policy establishment must be really pissed off at the way the EU (and Merkel) has handled Ukraine. Total fantasist rookies, if you ask me.
