Empire To Expand NATO In Response To War Caused By NATO Expansion

Turkey’s President Erdoğan has officially withdrawn Ankara’s objection to the addition of Finland and Sweden to NATO membership, with the three countries signing a trilateral memorandum at a NATO summit in Madrid.

The removal of Erdoğan’s objection was reportedly obtained via significant natsec concessions from the other two nations largely geared toward facilitating Turkey’s ongoing conflict with regional Kurdish factions, and it removes the final obstacle to Finland and Sweden beginning the process of becoming NATO members. Finland’s addition will more than double the size of NATO’s direct border with Russia, a major national security concern for Moscow.

  1. When Spain's Felipe Gonzalez (PSOE – Socialist Party) won the 1982 Elections with a resounding majority, he did so based on a firm proposal of 'NO NATO!' (OTAN NO)
    Six months later, when Ronnie Raygun finally deigned to meet with him in DC, Felipito proudly boarded the flight wearing his trademark open neck shirt, cardigan sweater and courdroy pants, telling the Media (in no uncertain terms) where Ronnie could shove his NATO plans for Spain.
    Bravo, compañero!
    Three days later as he disembarked from the same plane in Madrid, he was wearing a three-piece suit & tie.
    l said to myself: 'Uh oh. He fucked up … BIG time.'
    And that's exactly what happened.
    He started mumbling about "Well, we'll have a Referendum and take it from there, blahblahblahhh…"
    Within a year Spain had joined NATO.
    (and l gave up on ever believing any politician ever again)

    It's kind of cruelly poetic that exactly 40 years later Spain is hosting a summit to shepherd two more (ostensibly) neutral countries into the NATO fold led by the rebellious bad boy who also succumbs to the might of the yankee dollar.
    Sad state of affairs, indeed.

  2. I can't wait for the Ukrainian Nazi's start selling there new American weapons to Iran…maybe then Israel might actually open its mouth and criticize the US for their stupidity

  3. So basically instead of NATO trying to show that HEY WE CARE ABOUT HUMAN LIVES REALLY! They just just signed a global death warrant for everyone on this planet. Thanks Biden and Boris. I was enjoying my life but thanks to your puppet masters you just f**ked up me and my family’s future. I didn’t ask for this war and you had every opportunity to De-escalate this but no you gotta try and prove who has the biggest d*ck or in this who is the biggest D*CKHEAD!

  4. the west is just heading full speed towards its own desctruction, removing any obstacle in its way. that's what happens when you have bureaucrats, managers & heirs leaching of the capital accumulated. the west has probably collectively reached the last stage in Peter Principle, that level of its own incompetence.

    Poland – idiots
    Germany – idiots
    France – idiots
    Finland – idiots
    Sweden – idiots
    Turkey – corrupt
    Ukraine – corrupt
    USA – corrupt, idiots & belligerent
    all the rest – myopic cowards

  5. The stupid little irony , all of the bomb shelters in the U.S. were decommissioned years ago , except for the military and political leadership , those shelters were all upgraded , and the U.S. public has not a clue …

  6. The US Ruling Class, and their lackeys who are all members of the Millionaire's Club, on Capital Hill, do not care about preserving the world for the rest of humanity.
    To them, it is a Zero Sum Game. If they aren't the ones on top, with their boots placed on everyone else's necks, then they would just as soon destroy the world.
    We can see that they are willing to impoverish the populations of Europe and North America, all in their final bid to assert world dominance through what they tell us is a "rules-based order."
    In their eyes, no measure is a step too far, and they have clearly shown us that this is so, countless times in the past.

  7. The real reason countries want to join NATO is that the United Nations offers no military protection from the big bullies on the block. Your real complaint is that the U.S. being one of those bullies is in it.
