I don’t agree with this, but it is a very interesting perspective.

I don’t believe however there are any angels in this story.

I do also believe that the West and America stands for good, and embraces wholesome values. NATO is a defensive alliance. I don’t believe anyone in NATO wants war. Quite the opposite.
