Ah. But who really is the puppet, and who is the master?
Women want me. Men want to be with me.

Italy managed to ratify NATO membership for Finland and Sweden despite the government collapse.

With 23 votes done, the remaining countries are Spain, Greece, Portugal, Slovakia, Czechia, Turkey, and Hungary.

Portugal won't be a problem, only communists go for the NATO = Evil route.

The Minsky Moment

Accession passed 95-1 in the US Senate with only insurrectionist chickenshit Josh Hawley voting against and FSB Colonel Rand Paul voting "present"

Hawley is a piece of work.  Even fellow MAGA shit heel Tom Cotton couldn't hide his contempt.
The purpose of studying economics is not to acquire a set of ready-made answers to economic questions, but to learn how to avoid being deceived by economists.

Hawley is running the Cruz playbook--get attention by meaninglessly pissing everyone off periodically and leverage that into a higher profile.

Is Hungary expected to veto?

No mention of it in Hungarian politics yet. I wouldn't put it past Orban to copy Erdogans playbook and try to get something for letting it happen, he is in desperate need of cash. He could possibly tető trade the greenlighting of EU funds for it.

Equally likely though he may want to avoid opening one more front with the countries his realm's stability depends on and will just approve it promptly.

Denmark, Sweden, and Norway has just announced an agreement to coordinate more closely - sharing access to military infrastructure (in particular radar and other airspace tracking), as well as to co-ordinate patrols. Potentially there are other areas of "close coordination" that have not been fully announced at this point in time.

This is specifically directed at Russian aggression since the start of the war on Ukraine.

Russia is bringing the Kalmar Union back together.
