According the secret record S E C R E T HELSINKI 000541 of SCENESETTER FOR SECRETARY RICE'S VISIT TO FINLAND by US Amembassy Helsinki, Finnishs part in the world has that:
This in part results from long-held attitudes. For example, the vast majority of Finnish military resources are devoted to territorial defense, with only a relatively small amount for crisis management operations; this flows from the deeply-entrenched notion that in war the Finns, always have stood alone.So?
At the Nato Summit in Bucharest last April (2007), The recoprd raports, President Tarha Halonen spoke about continuation of Finland,s engagement through ISAF, and made a broad reference to Finland increasing
her contribution in Afghanistan.However, Halonen has not offered the Finnish public a strong voice supporting Finland,s contributions to Afghanistan. Halonen is part of the camp that believes Finland is already doing enough.
We do not agree.I did agree, becouse Finland did already doing enough in the war of others.
Yes, and we will not forget or leave behind cost-cutting of the pills by number of protected medicines, including those of U.S. manufacturers and their patents.
The Foreign Ministry and Ministry of Economy saw the potential damage to Finland,s reputation and lobbied against the measure, although parliament passed the bill unanimously in November (2008).
The Finns tout their `international credentials´ but those credentials suffered a setback in November when the Parliament approved a GOF proposal to amend a pharmaceutical pricing scheme in order to allow the substitution of lower priced generics for patent-protected drugs.Money talks (and bullshit walks). Perhaps someone also likes to drop this causerie-overview in the gategory of `the potential damage to Finland´.
My holy writing too can flow from the deeply-entrenched notion that in war the Finns, always have stood alone.
