Another Slant on Crimea

Sounds Plausible: Jack Matlock, former US Ambassador to the USSR, says that in annexing Crimea, Putin may be at least partially reacting to years of provocation by the US, including the eastward march of NATO and the expansion of US military bases in Eastern Europe.  Source: here
 Gee, ya think? Why is it that the U.S. can do anything it damn well pleases in our "national interest," can define anything it damn well pleases as our "national interest," can deploy as many troops, ships, aircraft, and drones as we damn well please in our "national interest" and other countries are not afforded the same privileges?

Could it be that other countries' national interest is what we say it damn well is as well?
