As Russian bear stirs, Finland reconsiders its neutrality

Finland’s tiny navy had a couple days of extreme excitement late last month, when its little coast guard cutters scoured the entrance to Helsinki Bay to catch what officials remain certain was a foreign submarine intruder.

The Finnish military subsequently announced that they had located the interloper, lurking within sight of downtown Helsinki, and shooed it off with small, warning depth charges.

The incident is strikingly reminiscent of one that occurred in the watery approaches to Sweden’s capital city, Stockholm, last October…

      Hey Vlad! Hands off Finland. My grandchildren live there.

      All I see 10 dead Russians for every dead Finnlander, just like last time. What a fucking waste. Plenty of other places deserving a good ass-kicking, Sahib.

    The national hero of Finland was a Nazi collaborator. Hard to feel bad for anyone in this fight.

      At least Putin is playing the game to win, unlike the rest of the west.

        He already has the Karelian peninsula.

          Good.
          I’ll take a real white warlord over a bunch of effete banksters anyday.

      You mean the one that kept them from being occupied by the Nazis while simultaneously preventing their being overrun by the Soviets?
      Ya know what, I’d say those heroics should be recognized and rewarded.

        I have a hard time with Mannerheim since he prompted so many Finns to join the SS while seemingly refusing to do it himself.

        Still better than apologizing.

        • El Martyachi

          How about cutting your lungs out with a spoon? Is that better than apologizing? Asking for a friend.

        Britain and America promised all sorts of help during that 1st war and then they just fucked Finland in the ass. They all remember that over there, but none of the shit journalists here know that.

  • FactsWillOut

    The west will just wring their hands, and maybe, if we show a bit of intestinal fortitude, make some empty promises, before we go back to navel-gazing and apologizing.

      President Obama would simply do nothing, while secretly rooting for the Russians. The stupid quisling as Obama is.

      • FactsWillOut

        Our leaders are a much greater threat than Putin or Islam.

    I admit to having serious suspicions of countries claiming to be “neutra”, because that usually translates in them trying to play both sides and profiting from both sides in any conflict.

    • FactsWillOut

      The Swiss were neutral in WW2. Why should they not have profited?

      • Alain

        Perhaps is one is totally morally neutral it is fine.

    Satana Perkele. When will white people learn to stick together?
    Remember Killer Hill.
    32 Skinnlanders vs. 4,000 Russkies.
    The Russkies quit the field.

    Send a frigate to Helsinki to ‘practice’ with the Finns for two or three months; offer a $2.5M bounty to the crew if they bring a Ruskie to the surface.
