    Actually , that's how more powerful states react when they want to discipline errant smaller states .Look at how Russia treats those states that go against it's interests in the neighbourhood - Georgia , Ukraine , etc .It's a long list .

    We indulge in a lot of unnecessary hair splitting .You can see why even the likes of Maldives & Sri Lanka at times cock a snook at us .

    Both these extreme approaches come with its own perils & benefits too , if I may add.

    It is same misconception that was nursed by Dick 'shoot' em up' Cheney. He assumed that just because Shias and Sunnis hate each other in Iraq, they would not try to dislodge Americans from Iraq by armed insurgency. Boy! they were wrong.

    But that also shows how common Russian people think about current situation in Af-Pak region and in Asia.
    To me it seems he(Russians) is a good honest man proud of his Slavic roots and mother Russia and hates western bigotry to Russia. But on the other side his thoughts borderline simple for today's standards. And that they can compromise allies interest if this gives them some benefit.

    On the other side most Western people think in highly organized and complicated way.

    Think Battle of Stalingrad .Think while Britain hogged most of the credit along with the US for Victory in Europe , the ex USSR single hamdedly broke the back of Germany .

    They've preserved their freedom by shedding blood - both of their enemies & of their own .

    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

    Thomas Jefferson.

    It hold true for a lot of nation & cultures but more true of the Russians than most .

    Sure. Somebody live in Maya, somebody - in the dream of Brahmā, somebody - in Matrix.

    We can play this game with Pakistan and Afganistan, too.

    Sure. Absolute defence is immoral, you know. Do you remember, why Karna Kaurav had refused his implanted "absolute armour"?
