He's looking for any excuse to be a pain in the ass. He likes being a part of NATO while still getting money from Vlad's buddies.

NATO should kick out Turkey, let Sweden and Finland in, and then wait for Russia to fark with Turkey.

THEN Turkey can rejoin NATO.

Turkey is important strategically. Black Sea can be a really big problem for Russia to protect.

Finland should remind Erdogan that Russia's has wanted to take the Dardanelles since Catherine the Great.

Russia needs all the friends they can get. Push too hard and we risk losing Turkey and access to the Black Sea in case of a war with Russia.

How did Turkey (Turkiye) ever get into NATO? Maybe it just seems crazy with who is in power there now.

FTFA: "Turkey said the Swedish government's decision not to prevent Rasmus Paludan, a politician from the Danish far-right Stram Kurs (Hard Line) party, from burning a copy of Islam's holy book in public was "completely unacceptable"."

Considering other right-wing shenanigans, I would not be surprised if that the burning of the Quran was a secret plan devised by Rasmus Paludan and Erdogan to cause tension in the talks, as they both are united by their far-right in ideology.

That might take NATO a good two days to get access to the Black Sea back.

Because "the enemy of my enemy is my friend".
Same reason Russia and the US were allies until they weren't.
Same reason the US and Saddam Hussein were allies until they weren't.

I think a joint US airbase in Finland on St. Petersburg's doorstep would be a lot more valuable to both countries than Incirlik, Turkey.

Yes this is the way a NATO 2.0 for contiguous European countries. It can have the same structure and requirements as NATO 1.0 but without Turkey.

So then if Sweden and Finland get invaded everyone except Türkiye can chip in.

A "Finnish Time Out" is what we Minnesotans call it when you pull out, grab the base firmly, and just rub it on her clit for a minute. Oh, wait, that's a Finish Time Out.

That's a rather personal question!

The only thing Turkey has of any value to NATO is controlling access to the Black Sea.  During the cold war, they were strategically located relatively close to the Soviet Union.  However, Finland is in a much better position relative to Russia, and especially Moscow.  So other than the Black Sea access, Turkey is useless.

Also, Turkey has a long history of farking with NATO.  They can't be trusted.

The Black Sea is Russia's anus. If we were to go to war with them, poking them up their butt is going to be essential to any plan.

Right-wing Muslims (or "Muslims") are as pathetic about literal objects of symbolic value as dipshiat Americans are about burning the flag and similar. Useless display vs. actual ideal.

Shouldn't being a theocracy automatically disqualify you from having a say in anything, ever. Yeah, yeah they're a secular nation since 1928 with no formal religion, buuuutttt,
Turkey said the Swedish government's decision not to prevent Rasmus Paludan, a politician from the Danish far-right Stram Kurs (Hard Line) party, from burning a copy of Islam's holy book in public was "completely unacceptable"."

Only on paper.

Erdogan got his position because of Putin.  He used Putin's playbook to seize power, and there's no way he's ever giving it back.  Of course he doesn't want Sweden and Finland joining NATO.  He is and always has been Putin's biatch.  And now he says that countries should deport people who criticize him.  WTF kind of totalitarian bullshiat is that?

They control access to the Black sea and can potential bottle or a portion of Russian navy which was a good thing to have during the cold war, before hardline nutters got into power in Turkey.

erdogan either does not understand the concept of freedom of speech or is willfully ignoring the fact the guy who burned the Koran did not need government permission to burn it  and likely he broke no laws doing so.

I also suspect that so called coup attempt in Turkey  in a few years back was a farce so erdogan  had an excuse to get rid of those he considered dangerous to his plans.
