i thought the idea behind NATO was to promote the inclusion of nations into a western (ie capitalistic) method of civilisation; by endeavouring to 'enslave' the working classes so as to maintain the ruling elite, whilst imposing and curtailing the expansion of more a socialistic ideaology?

this is the only reason for why NATO would consider places like the Ukraine and Georgia; two states with neglible market value, resource richness or anything else of value other than territorial proximity, smack bang next to the old russian enemy.

perhaps the college lecture that explains that a NATO member state is NEVER likely to be trusted by any russian based authority, will come in the next semester?
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
