Ukraine, Georgia need ‘some time’ to join NATO – Sherman

Ukraine and Georgia need “some time” to meet NATO’s high standards and be ready to join the military alliance, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman has said.

She said this after a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council in Brussels on Wednesday, January 12, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

“We [at NATO] are open to everyone, and certainly Ukraine is one of those countries that very much wants to become a member, and so they are going through the process. It does take some time and there is a lot of work that has to get done to make sure that the high standards of NATO are met,” Sherman said.

Sherman, who led the U.S. delegation in talks with Russian officials in Geneva and Brussels, also noted that the same was true for Georgia.

  1. Not sure what these high standards are that she refers to. Does it include the removal of the spine? Training with broomsticks because you don’t have enough weapons. Or be a full on Putlerite like Orban? I wish someone would get off the fucking fence, and say either yes or no. At least then Ukraine knows who her friends are.

  2. Uhm. Are Nato aware of what they are doing? Nato refuses to protect a state willing to join. This makes it look as if Nato is afraid of RuSSia(‘s response). If so, what the fuck is Nato and how safe is a small Nato member like Denmark or Estonia??? I don’t feel protected by an alliance that is afraid of the country it is supposed to protect us from!

  3. “Ukraine and Georgia need “some time” to meet NATO’s high standards and be ready to join the military alliance, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman has said.”

    Hmm … interesting concept.
    Let us play a little game. If we could replace the Ukrainian army with one from a NATO member, which one could equal the Ukrainian army or even be better to face mafia land’s army? Let us discount the US and British armies for this game.
    My guess is that there aren’t any. None of the current NATO countries’ armies are better or even equal to the Ukraine army. Is this the sort of high standard that she is speaking of? Is it the non-experience in fighting? Is it the ability to pick the prettiest flowers? Or, is it the number of eunuchs, transvestites, Muslims, sissies and fags that make up a high standard?
