FINLAND DECIDES TO JOIN NATO, EVEN AFTER RUSSIA SAID IT WOULD LEAD TO MILITARY CONFRONTATION

This just in.

FINLAND WILL SUBMIT AN APPLICATION FOR NATO MEMBERSHIP IN THE COMING WEEKS; FINLAND MEMBERSHIP WILL BE ACCEPTED BY THE SUMMER – FOREIGN AFFAIRS COMMITTEE

Context:

This is an escalation. There are two ways to look at this and two ways alone. The leaders of Finland aren’t afraid of provoking military conflict with Russia, whom they believe “have gone crazy.” In other words, they are okay with doing things that will directly cause the deaths of their citizenry.

The flip side is independence from Russia means being able to make decisions for Finland without fear of reprisal. If they folded on the non existent NATO matter, why Russia might ask for Finnish ports to protect them against a German invasion of Leningrad.

No matter what side you fall on, this is worse for the specter of peace and only hastens the war path NATO is on with Russia.

    Now Russia will amass troops on the border with Finland and the media will spew the same garbage about how Putin is the aggressor.

    Anything to provoke Russia into a direct battle. It won’t stop until they get what they want.
