Riiiiight... and what's happening in Ukraine right now is just a "special military operation" to de-Nazify the country. I wish that I could respond to you more appropriately, on behalf of the many people I know personally who are suffering very directly from such ignorance right now, but even expressing this wish I feel like is an invitation to get my comment censored in what has become a very Putinesque atmosphere in the comments section here.

@cosenza: No, but the West has been consistently promoting civil unrest in post-Soviet states through colour revolutions etc., including in Ukraine, backed a coup d'etat in 2014, and later encouraged the Ukrainian government not to respect the Minsk agreements and instead follow a path of continued war in Donbass (which, mind you, has been ongoing since 2014) and of anti-Russian discrimination within its population, with overt nationalist undertones (and yes, even neo-Nazi elements, because how else would you describe the Azov Batallion or Stepan Bandera admirers?). The Russian government are no saints, but provoking them into a proxy war has in fact been desirable for Western governments, allowing them to prop up the protection racket known as NATO and, perhaps more importantly, convincing Europeans to accept as necessary the severance of economic ties with Russia to the benefit of the US economy, despite their own economic stability and prospects being severely compromised.

@Danem20: Western and Russian imperialism are two sides of the same coin. To serve the interests of the rich and powerful, they feed on each other to create threats and conflicts where there would otherwise be none. If we want peace, we should take action against all instruments of imperialism, and especially those that stem from or are served by our own governments and institutions.

Your comments get censored on here so much because you can be a huge jerk. 99% of the comments on this site are civil. The rest of us want to keep it that way. You give good insight from time to time, but you can also be incredibly snarky, condescending, and quite frankly a bit of a bully. Save that for Reddit.

If there's any silver lining at all to the senseless tragedy and atrocity of what's currently happening in Ukraine right now it may be the strengthening and growth of NATO, the vital need for which has always been clear to those paying attention but never moreso than now going back to collapse of the Soviet Union. If there are two, then it might be Putin being invited by the Russian people to Red Square to do his best Muammar Qaddafi impersonation.

Under NATO membership, my country, Greece, has seen, among other things: the imprisonment, torture, exile, or even execution of thousands of political opponents during the Cold War, a CIA-backed military junta for seven years, a wave of Greek refugees from the Istanbul pogrom of 1955, which was backed by the Turkish branch of NATO's Operation Gladio, full-blown NATO aggression in our immediate vicinity in the Yugoslav wars, and, of course, incessant implicit or explicit threats of invasion by fellow NATO member Turkey, which have also been used by our governments to justify a constant stream of huge purchases of NATO-built military equipment, despite serious and increasing economic hardships for ordinary Greeks. Your point again?

Same reason they kept themselves out of World War II. They don't want to be forced into a war, and they're too remote to need NATO's protection.

Congrats to Finland. This is very obviously the right move and good for them and for the world. Distrust anyone who says otherwise.

But... they did not yet join NATO. They voted to apply for NATO membership. Their application has to be received and approved before they become NATO members, it's not automatic, and Erdogan (who is himself a corrupt and self-dealing would-be despot very much like Putin or Trump) might block it, if he doesn't think it will benefit him personally.

Anyone familiar with why Luxembourg takes up the fight?

I guess it's nice to know there are fewer countries unsigned and freeloading than aren't. Though there is certainly an unequal contribution by members.

As I understand it, Serbia is Russia-friendly, which explains their absence.

Austria is neutral(?). Both it, and Ireland are 'partners' (..so are RUS/UKR/BEL..)

The weak links are, Turkey, Hungary, Romania, Germany, France (in that order)? Why is it always France...

The strongest links are US, UK, ? Maybe Canada, Netherlands, Poland, Baltics. You'd have to discriminate between will of populace, government, and capability.

Moldova has a border dispute in Transnistria, which prevents membership regardless of will, afaik.

I know there's some UN-backed NATO peace-keeping operation or something of the sort in Kosovo re Serbia conflict. I don't know anything about Bosnia- apparently it's in negotiations to become a member.

AFAIK Cyprus is heavily Russian populated or associated.

Sweden's not going to be able to join, Hungary won't allow it unless they stop talking trash about Hungary's "democracy", and as Sweden is actually a democracy, they can't tell opposing politicians what to do and say. Therefore, 'tis unlikely Sweden will be a NATO member anytime soon.

That's most of NATO. All members of NATO are supposed to allot 2% of their GDP to defense spending. Currently only the USA, Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and the UK meet that goal. The remaining 24 do not. Even with an aggressive Russia on their doorstep. It's one reason why certain politicians don't believe NATO is a particularly useful organization.

Not that recent, actually happened back in April. Sweden is looking likely to be added soon, given that Turkey finally blinked and has agreed to put Sweden's membership up to a vote there. That just leaves Hungary blocking Sweden's path.

I doubt Hungary will hold out for long given with Turkey starting to change its support, I imagine the rest of NATO is pretty tired of Orbans actions at this point and can start turning screws to make Hungary agree.

Even at the resolution of this conflict when the treaties all shake out, part of the treaty will likely be Ukraine does NOT get admitted into NATO. I think it will still be a few decades until that happens if ever. The fact that there is disputed territory in Ukraine makes it a very dangerous addition.
