Play by whose rules ?

Reader comment on item: Saving NATO from Turkey
in response to reader comment: Replace Turkey with Russia in NATO after Putin's Term Ends

Why should a post Putin Russia play by the rules of the West ? Do you think the West could ever force Russia to play by her rules ? Also, hopefully Putin will continue as Czar of Russia for another 20 odd years.

Turkey must be kicked out of NATO immediately but not replaced by Russia. Also, I agree with Dave that the US really does not need NATO at all. Its Europe that needs the US.
