NATO can't defeat Russia according to the Dutch MIVD

Google Translate did fairly well.

"NATO cannot compete against a Russian military attack at the moment.
The alliance has great assets, but decision-making is slow - politically as
well as militarily -

NATO countries cannot handle long-term widespread war and the US
has the lion's share of military capacity. And that is stuck on the other
side of the Atlantic."

FSUW are not for entry level daters. FSUW don't do vague FSUW like a man of action so be a man of action  If you find a promising girl, get your butt on a plane. There are a hundred ways to be successful and a thousand ways to f#ck it up
Kiss the girl, don't ask her first.
Get an apartment not a hotel. DON'T recycle girls

yes, it was meant as a "get the public ready for more military spending" kind of info, but it still read to me as: We are provoking russia by any means necessary, but should putin go off the deep end we have a serious problem now.

)))

Reads to me like they ( Moscow) have more conventional weapons and they've been using them in Ukraine, Georgia, Chenchn'ya ...

'We' are REACTING to the Kremlin .... not 'provoking..  Which FSU nation have we grabbed territory from ?
