Double Plus Nuance

So some NATO members don't want to admit Georgia or Ukraine because we might have to defend them from Russia.

But NATO expansion is under consideration in theory to another country with a hostile neighbor:

Assistant Secretary of State Philip Gordon told U.S. lawmakers Tuesday that the United States would consider Russian membership in the military alliance that was founded to protect Europe from Soviet aggression.


But President Obama thinks it might be fine to extend NATO's defense perimeter to the Russian-Chinese border to defend Moscow's Far East provinces from possible Chinese aggression?

The nuance! It's blinding!
