Really? NATO expansion as causative action??????. Perhaps Putin's invasions of post-Soviet countries and obliteration of Syrian hospitals from the air had something to do with it. Please look up the Chinese internet memes: 555x1314 and XSWL.
Do you want of world of illiberal autocracies -Xi/Putin +/- Trump, Duterte, Modi, Poland's Duda (who is very generous to Ukraine-maybe he knows something you do not) or the useless Hungarian (DeSantis inspirer) Orban, the darling of CPAC? For me, I will choose the NATO world every time.
