Ukraine and Georgia Prevented from Joining NATO.

The AP article is at Global Research.

“NATO’s plan to expand further into former Soviet turf collapsed Thursday when leaders…opted not to put the strategically important nations on track for membership.”

This is a significant development in the current East/West ‘power struggle’. Russia’s energy assets give it considerable bargaining power, apparently enough to roadblock NATO expansion this time.

Eastern powers prevent the loss of two pawns on the Grand Chessboard, for now.
