Honestly turkey should have their voting status removed at this point. Kinda seem like the play all sides assholes that's got into NATO before a shit regime took over.

its fragile right now but turkey still seems to be for it, granted with some demands.

Thats just black mail, using NATO to profit sets a bad presidence. This means that every country joining will give Turkey/Hungary/... to use it to make deals.

Just change it so it doesn't need to be unanimous.

No. It’s a defensive alliance . No country should be forced to defend another they didn’t explicitly agree to defend. That being said, Turkey is being dicks about this whole thing.

You would think it would be sorta like the security council because NATO if you add USA France Germany and the UK you have most of the NATO forces right ?

Turkey has the largest military in NATO after the United States.

I think Ukraine is showing us it's about how well equipped and experienced the military are..not physical size.

russia has a huge military too

Largest yes , best equipped no, but the danger lies in the Turks living in Europe. Could cause social unrest

Yes turkey has big army but is most unstable country I ever seen being in nato, cough “2016” coup.

Right. Seems like that should never be the case where one person (country) can build the rest hostage.

The issue is, every country basically has to agree that they would come to the defence of everyone else. If it was just something like a majority vote, you'd have instances of countries being forced to defend countries that they didn't agree to defending, which could result in the alliance falling apart in the outbreak of conflict.

Currently Turkey has the second largest military in NATO so they probably provide more security than they receive.
