Finland to decide - NATO or Molotov cocktails?

They have themselves a bit of quandary:

"According to an assessment issued on Tuesday by the Finnish Institute of International Affairs (FIIA), Finland should join NATO only if it is ready to defend other member states of the alliance against an attack... According to the writers, in such a case, Finns should not expect other countries to come to their aid if Finland is attacked".

It is, indeed, a cold hard world out there.

I think it is fair to say that Finland's neighbours to the North and West do not have designs on the place, and "the Bear that walks like a Man" was intent on selling back some of the bits it seized in 1940, rather than eyeing Espoo, Tampere and Turku with malicious intent.
