#1 NATO expansion since 1986: Who is the aggressor? @Elon Musk

#2 "NATO is not a defense alliance; it's a war machine. Ask the people of Afghanistan, Iraq, or Libya." @Mick Wallace
#3 CIA Director William Burns admitted in 2008 that NATO expansion to Ukraine crosses Moscow’s “redlines” and could "split the country in two, leading to violence or even, some claim, civil war, which would force Russia to decide whether to intervene.”…
#4 "One year ago, the US could have sought to avoid war by guaranteeing that Ukraine would not join NATO. Blinken did the opposite, insisting that NATO’s door must remain open. History will remember this as folly." @David Sacks…
#5 In May 2003, the Senate unanimously approved NATO expansion for the Baltic States. George W. Bush thanked Colin Powell, Joe Biden, and others for delivering the votes. What impact did NATO expansion have on the ongoing conflict? @Michael Tracey…
#1 @David Sacks talks about Donald Trump's criticism of Victoria Nuland's involvement in the ousting of Ukraine's democratically elected government in 2014: "Nuland is the Fauci of this situation. In the same way that Fauci was supposed to be protecting us from viruses, and then hon research, Victoria Nuland was supposed to be our chief diplomat with respect to Russia and Eastern Europe. And what did she do instead? She ginned up this conflict by backing an insurrection in Ukraine in 2014... They brought in these Ukrainian far-right nationalists as the muscle. She was the State Department official who was responsible for backing this insurrection of a democratically elected leader in 2014... Ever since then, the relationship with the Russians over Ukraine has been heading south. If you are wondering why Putin seized Crimea, it was in direct retaliation for the coup that we backed in 2014. This is the origin of the conflict, and the fact that Trump is willing to talk about it is pretty incredible."
