Disinfo: NATO creates imaginary threats to world stability

Summary

NATO creates imaginary threats to world stability and then saber rattles to defend against aforementioned bogeyman threats.

Disproof

It is Russia who calls NATO a threat.

In addition to what happened in Georgia and Ukraine, the simulated attacks by Russian warplanes on USS Donald Cook, the abduction of Estonian security service operative, Eston Kohver, the repeated violation of the Baltic states' airspace, and dozens of other provocations by Russia suggest that Russia's threat is not "imaginary".
