SWEDEN heads towards WAR Footing

PostAuthor: Terry Franks » Fri Mar 03, 2017 2:24 am

"In the head long adjustment to Make America Great Again (MAGA) = there maybe a small "Fallout" that is potentially a massive issue.

As the call for NATO members to look at paying more for US security, tensions in some EU countries are beginning to rise.
As an Example = for the first time in Seven Years, Sweden has called for an Emergency call up of ALL youth 18 to 24 year old's to enter Compulsory Conscription.

"The threat of the U.S. no longer wanting to honor its security guarantees is the most important development in the history of the alliance,” said Henrik Breitenbauch, the director of the Center for Military Studies in Copenhagen. “It has created high levels of concern all over Europe"
"With Russia’s annexation of Crimea three years ago and the Russian support for the insurgency in Ukraine as of last year, Swedish military spending increased to 11 percent of GDP
"The reactivating of conscription is needed for military readiness.”
Gotland, which serves as something of a forward defense for the Swedish mainland, 55 miles to the west, was already remilitarized"
"Strategically located in the Baltic Sea, the island is not far from the heavily militarized Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, which is sandwiched between Lithuania and Poland. “We see a lot of activity in the Baltics and a lot of training, provocative flights and military exercise going on in our neighborhood,” said Marinette Radebo, a spokeswoman for the Defense Ministry"
"
The change has been sudden.
Pfc. Emil Kling, a member of the Wartofta tank company who is now on Gotland, said he had thought he was signing on for something completely different when he joined the armed forces. “If anyone had said three years ago that I’d be in Gotland now, I wouldn’t have believed them,” he said. “Things have changed fast"
"Just inside the walls’ South Gate, Birgitta Stenstrom runs a quiet book cafe. She is not convinced that the tanks south of town are the right answer to the threats against Gotland, and to Sweden"
"
The authorities say there may be reason to be concerned. In the last nine months of 2016, the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency received 200 reports of cyberattacks on public infrastructure, 60 of them serious incidents leading to technical failures or the installation of viruses.
In the Journal of Strategic Studies, Martin Kragh recently published a study on Russia’s “active measures” toward Sweden, meaning the use of forged documents, disinformation, military threats and agents of influence"

It's nice to see Sweden make efforts to defend themselves. I think they may be overreacting to President Trumps statements that nations should carry some of their own weight. They have had a free ride on our military's back for decades, allowing them to spend most of their money on social programs instead of national defense. Facts like this may be painful but they are still facts. :drinks

Facts are often very difficult to engage. However, as you say Fred. All of NATO needs to step up and begin to imagine defending themselves. Will be hard for sure, but what is the option? Wait for America to come to their aid while they continue to fund their social issues?

Hello Terry. It is always good to hear from you. Hope all is well down under!

"Europe feels UNSAFE’ Finland DEMANDS EU & NATO step up spending to defend the continent

"BRUSSELS and Nato must increase their defence budgets in order to defend an “unsafe” Europe against threats such as Russia, Finnish President Sauli Niinisto has revealed"

"The Trump administration has been vocal regarding the thought that EU countries are not pulling their weight in contributions to Nato and should share the security bill.

See US Videos = http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/772 ... -elections

"Nato’s target for two per cent of gross domestic product to be spent on military budgets has been poorly received so far but German Chancellor Angela Merkel reiterated their intention to do so.

If Germany and France alone were to meet that target by 2024, it could add more than $40billion to their defence spending, almost two-thirds the amount Russia spends"

"Finland has stayed out of Nato due to its proximity to Russia and it is currently building closer military ties with neighbouring Sweden.

A report entitled ‘US Strategy for Maintaining a Europe Whole and Free’, said: “Since Putin has returned to office, he has launched a determined effort to reassert Moscow’s influence in areas formerly under Soviet control"

"Russia’s objective is to overturn the European security order that emerged after the end of the Cold War.

“This involves halting or rolling back the process of Nato enlargement; establishing and enforcing a Russian sphere of influence in its near abroad."

Hello again, Terry! Hope all is well down under!

You are right to be alarmed. We all should be alarmed. It seems as if all of the world is in a state of flux! Moving toward what no one can tell for sure. But we all need to step carefully. The USA has no intention to start or to get involved in a WAR of any kind! We are trying to rebuild our armed forces after another 8 years of slashing and cutting our military! I bet America can still put a force on the line to defeat whatever needs our attention but that doesn't mean it won't be difficult;

Let's all pray that it doesn't have to happen!
