Honesty I think this is more about Turkey’s gripes with the US than it is about Sweden or Finland.  If the US announced tomorrow it would drop support of the Kurds and ship F-16s, Turkey would probably vote in Sweden and Finland.  

And this is all comes back to  Russia in Ukraine - Russia has to pull troops out of Syria to fight in Ukraine, leaves a bit of a vacuum for Turkey, but Turkey needs us to get out as well.  

We won't, and never have, challenged them in Syria. Main reason. Incirlik AB. 

And it is not F-16's. It is F-35's. A game changer in the region. Everyone has F-16's. Even Iraq.

Turkey is off the F-35.  They were even a major partner in developing the aircraft but Erdogan decided to buy S-400 air defense from Russia. That got them out of F-35 and they will never be back in unless/until they trash their fancy Russian air defense systems. Since then they have indeed moved on to F-16s, the shiny block 70 with the upgraded radars, as a next option.  The admin has suggested that we should make that sale.

As far as the Nordics go, you’ll note that Putin and Russia haven’t said much about them recently.  I might suggest that’s connected to Erdogan doing exactly what Putin wants on that front. Turkey does care about PKK and all the other stuff, but they are still trying to walk a tightrope.

This coming on the heels of China’s Xi demoting the pro-Russian Chinese official and acting like he wants to repair relations with the West.

I am not going to link to the trash Russia disinformation accounts, but the line is that the mall was being used to shelter AFU forces (or maybe the AFU forces were next door and the fire spread) and so really it’s the Ukrainians doing war crimes by using civilian shield.

Same old, same old. Just like the maternity hospital in Mariupol.

Wow.  And the shadow creeping up, from the cloud of dust and debris, is just ominous.

I didn't hear any sound but it looks like they were running before the strike.  Was it sirens, or did they just hear the incoming missile?

Terrifying and it makes me ragey.  More ragey, I guess.

We are pretty screwed y’all. The Russians know where the White House, Parliament, AND the Pentagon are.

But do they know where the Posse East is?  If they figure that one out, I'll really start to get worried.

Yes, continue to justify NATO’s existence.  Brilliant.

sure seems like it would be possible to completely neutralize russia's "intelligence capabilities" by instructing google to deny service requests to maps.google.com from russian ip addresses and known vpn routes.

Mariupol had the most modern low-floor trolleybuses. The vast majority - 51 units. trolleybuses in the city were produced in 2020, and two dozen more were supplied from enterprises in 2012-2017.

Most of the trolleybus fleet was destroyed, some of the undamaged cars were taken to Donetsk by the occupiers.

SBU detained the agent of the Russian Federation who corrected missile strikes on the Yavoriv military range in the Lviv region

 Counterintelligence found that the information was passed to the enemy by a former KGB officer. He sent the exact locations marked on the map to the curator via a chat on the Telegram channel.

Oh wow, Nissan fears that the war in Ukraine "may become more serious" than the scores of thousands of people that have already been slaughtered and/or kidnapped?  Wow, thanks for all the concern, Nissan.

Also, go fuck yourself, Nissan.

I get the sense Moscow is trying to drag this into winter when their trade leverage with the EU will be at its peak. What will happen then?

Germany will show the same resolve they have since this whole thing started.

The effect that < 10 HIMARS are already having on Russia’s ability to press forward really underscores how seriously a NATO force would obliterate them in a direct conflict.

That would be a 3 day 'war'.
