Hungarian dictator Viktor Orban on Thursday announced his country’s parliament will earn their Kremlin paycheck and delay their approval of Sweden and Finland’s accession to NATO membership until next year, AFP reports. Only Hungary and Turkey remain to greenlight the two Baltic nations’ joining the alliance, unsurprisingly the two sketchiest and least democratic members of the bloc.
Turkey could be given a little more leeway given their unique position on NATO’s eastern frontier bordering Iran, Iraq, and Syria, as well as controlling the gateway to the Black Sea. Hungary, however isn’t really bringing much to the table and it shouldn’t be a tough call to simply kick them the fuck out of NATO and the European Union, or at the very least suspend them from both blocs until they depose Orban and undertake major reforms. Enough of this shit.
