Nov 26 (5/6): Screwing with NATO

One thing that Russia and Turkey can agree on, albeit for different reasons, is completely fucking with NATO.

Today in Turkey fucking up NATO:

Reuters: Exclusive: Turkey holds up NATO military plans over Syria dispute – sources

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Turkey is refusing to back a NATO defense plan for the Baltics and Poland until the alliance offers Ankara more political support for its fight against Kurdish YPG militia in northern Syria, four senior alliance sources said.

Ankara has told its NATO envoy not to sign off on the plan and is taking a tough line in meetings and in private conversations, demanding the alliance recognize the YPG as terrorists in the formal wording, the sources said.

NATO was founded to stop Russian (Soviet Union) aggression and influence in Europe. Turkey is preventing NATO from fulfilling its mission unless NATO supports them in doing their stupid hateful evil shit.

And now Turkey is holding NATO’s primary mission hostage.

There are US politicians who are increasingly speaking out about this, but, I mean, it seems less like speaking truth to power than it is speaking obviousness to power.

Obviousness will not set you free though—truth does that. That which is obvious is generally already well known; it’s obvious.

Once again: Everybody knows what it going on. They haven’t figured out what to do with it.

But it is still a problem. Both stupid and terrible.
