Sweden and Finland agree to apply for NATO membership

More news to p*ss off Putin. It looks like Finland and Sweden are going to apply to join NATO at the same time. This could happen as early as mid-May.

I'm sure Putin is going to be reminding Finland and Sweden and the world that Russia has nukes and might use them.

See, that's what happens when one reads only headlines - one gets misinformed.

If one reads the linked article one will see that no such agreement has been reached. However, it is clear that both governments are minded to do so.

More news to p*ss off Putin.

All self-inflicted.  Putin has succeeded in strengthening NATO's unity and resolve and has convinced two non-aligned nations to seek membership.  Oops.

I'm sure Putin is going to be reminding Finland and Sweden and the world that Russia has nukes and might use them.

Yes, Putin will flop his cock on the table, but there is no scenario that he attacks the West with nukes that Moscow does not end up a smoking, glowing ruin.

It appears that turkey is sill threatening to derail Sweden and Finland joining NAtO   Nothing is ever really done until everything is signed, and money is transferred,

Turkey Renews Threat to Veto Sweden and Finland’s NATO Bids

Turkey is threatening to veto NATO membership for Sweden and Finland even as the military alliance formally paved the way for the two Nordic countries to join.

Turkey will not ratify membership of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization for the applicants if they don’t fufill their promises to combat terrorism and extradite suspects under a memorandum of understanding reached at an alliance summit in Madrid last week, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Monday.

“They have to comply with this document, if they don’t then we won’t allow them to join NATO,” Cavusoglu told NTV television.....

Given that both Finland and Sweden have made great play of backsliding on the agreements with Turkey, I expect that Turkey will throw their toys out of the pram. This, for Turkey, is important stuff and the two Nordic countries have behaved rather treacherously.

Yes, yes, we agree.
Document signed.
We crossed our fingers behind our backs - we won't do what we agreed.
