An application will come very soon!
Ergogan of Turkey wants to block Finland and Sweden from joining NATO. He is getting more like Putin by falsely claiming that they are supporting terrorist groups, like the Kurds (really?).
The world is finding out that Russia’s army isn’t that big or great.
Welcome to the party.
“Too wittle,too wate” says Elmer Fudd
As the “fickle finger of fate” draws ever closer to the big red button.
Seems you can’t trust a former KGB guy, who’s now russki president. Well, never saw that coming.
Finland and Sweden see the writing on the wall, only under collective protection “might”.. they be safe from Russian invasion. A big “might”, NATO is not too keen on taking on Russia either.
Just got to ask that we please don’t try to make Sweden and Finland look like it’s only fear that is all of a sudden driving them to NATO. Those countries are simply fed up with an overweight, grumpy, moth-eaten bear growling and farting on the other side of a fence. Just looking to have a larger broom to swat it in the face if it begins to climb over their fence I’d bet. I’d think that either country would royally stick it to the ever so high quality and stature of Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ & Lootin’ Pootin’s conscript clowns. They’re more like backwoods teenage wannabe thugs that elite troops. Make no doubt that they are incredibly dangerous to unarmed civilians, especially against old folks, young women, and small children but against a well trained army? I doubt they brought enough clean underwear. Bloody hell, this is what y’all get when a fascist crazy man sends backwoods hatefilled peckerwoods that y’all have lied to their whole lives out to wreck havoc. They can’t do diddly squat against warriors so they rape and pillage and massacre the innocent. Damned fascists.
And oh look at the Russian agents who had their photo op picture taken with Zelensky, and how fed up with the lot of those clowns he seems to be.

Finland’s problem (potentially) is that it was until about 100 years ago part of Russia, as an “autonomous grand duchy”. No time like the present to set about stitching the old Empire back together.
Finland the country that gave the world amazing snipers, and Sweden, brings high-tech to the table
I processed the picture before I processed the words. I saw two women asking for backup who are being shadowed by a giant man wielding a bloody club, and expected it to be about Roe vs. Wade.
It’s a good cartoon, but I still wonder about the choice to portray both Sweden and Finland as women; both countries have male presidents at the moment, and three of the four NATO representatives are identifiably men (I can’t identify the fourth one way or the other). It was presumably a conscious choice on Breen’s part, but it adds an element that seems out of place to me.
All russia has are dumb and nuclear bombs now.
… and looking at the upkeep of the vehicles that they are using, the nuclear ones probably won’t explode.
After losing a third of their already-anemic military power, the size of that club is hardly an indicator of their ability to attack Finland, which has been preparing for many, many decades of possible invasion. Inclusion of Finland and Sweden would be a huge blow to Putin, gambling that his manipulation of tЯц☭p and the GOP’s ongoing attempts to seize power in a coup emboldened him to attack Ukraine, thinking it would weaken NATO.
Instead, Biden has strengthened NATO resolve and gathered no less than 40 nations to confront Russia with crippling sanctions, including a total embargo of their only real resource, oil and gas.
A two-thirds vote in the U.S. Senate would be required for us, as a NATO member, to include Sweden and Finland. Many of the pro-Putin anti-American GOP Senators might not vote for our best national interests – they’ve done so many times before.
Who advised Putin that a hostile military invasion of Ukraine was a good idea? Are they still alive? Just wondering.
With NATO, you must ask to join. With the NEW Russian Empire, you must fight to avoid becoming a member.
Finland’s PM told Putin, “You are to blame”!
Standing up to a bully!
