BUSH in ROMANIA (NATO)

NATO in Romania 

President Bush is in Romania (where I was born) for a meeting with NATO allies, and he is calling for NATO expansion.  More specifically – he is trying to convince the other allies that Georgia and Ukraine should be allowed to join.  There is opposition both inside and outside.  The most vocal opponent – not surprisingly – is Russia.  Other countries (e.g. Germany) also seem to be against this expansion – for “the sake of balance.”

In my opinion – Bush is right.  The Cold War is over – and the expansion is not a threat to Russia.  At least  – it is not an offensive threat.  The only “threat” is defensive.  What do I mean by that?
