On 4 April, NATO turned 70 years old. The atmosphere at the celebrations was quarrelsome, as often happens with the elderly when they start losing their marbles. It was a sign of profound schizophrenia.
As the struggle between the Land powers and the Sea powers continue around the world an interesting thing is happening on Iceland which has served as in important geostrategic point in the Atlanticist periphery since the Second World War.
Since NATO wars are always shady and cowardish pirates operations, with no real casus belli, NATO always needs some accompanying non-military tools to secure outcomes and its “victories”.
During the last few years we have seen some big NATO military exercises at the Baltic sea area, and unfortunately Finland which is an unaligned country has taken part of these operations in leadership of our Secretary of Defence Jussi Niinistö.
During the Cold War, Finland tried to preserve its neutrality and balance its relationships with both the USSR and the states of Europe.
