I hope no one in NATO sells them any new arms before they agreed to FIN + SWE joining NATO. There needs to be PRESSURE on Erdogan.

Would the 'two squadrons of Eurofighter jets' be the Tranche 1 Typhoons slated for retirement? With mention of the C-130Js I wonder if it is.

But yes, no deal without the approval for Finland and Sweden first.

Shouldn't Greece be allowed an opinion too?

Apparently the Quran book burning fiasco in Stockholm was also paid for by a Russian agent.

​​​​​​​Erdogan has egg on his face. Hopefully Turkey responds by lifting its objection to Sweden's NATO membership and increased military aid to Ukraine.
