Personally, I can't imagine a soldier drinking alcohol...

Swedish army is not very different from the rest of the swedish society, only
shrinking in a rapid rate.

I'm surprised you didn't decide to claim Swedish citizenship after you read that article......

I would, but even Swedish infantrymen would be hard-pressed to match my level of consumption.

Well, since we've not been in a war in almost 200 years (since 1814) our soldiers are getting a bit bored...

You should hear the outcry of the local watering holes and red light establishments, whenever a Bundeswehr (German Army) base is closed/ downsized. Big grin

Amen to that. It's time to retake the eastern half (some poeple know it as Finland) of our great country!

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

But Finland is Sweden! Finland was Swedish long before it was Finnish. It's an honour thing. But yeah, I guess we could take Norway as well...

But beware of the Danes they possibly want to have Skåne back - and you know they are fearless - they don't even fear the hate of a certain religious group.

That's a deal. I live right next to the Carlsberg brewery in Copenhagen. As a matter of fact let's make it "10 kasser øl".

Absolutely, and Blekinge as well. Big grin

But seriously, I think that 15-20 years from now, people in the Øresund region will have a more bi-national identity. I believe that something like 10.000 Danes are already living in Malmø. I also believe that CPH will benefit from that. Every third passenger that start their journey from CPH is Swedish.

Ok, I'll be going to Kopenhagen next weekend, I can pick them up then. Am unsure about Blekning and Halland though, we might actually want to hang on to those parts.

Of course. Germany is alot cheaper than Denmark anyway. And my sister works for Scandlines in Trelleborg, so I can hop on the ferry to Sassnitz for free!

I had the pleasure of experiencing the Joint Winter military exercise a year or two ago, where over a period of 2 weeks the Swedes in their Saab Gripen's trained dogfighting with the norwegian pilots in their F-16s.
I talked to one of the swedish crew who by the end of the 2 weeks told me how well it was going for his countrymen.

The swedes lost 9 out of 10 times in the air.

If your groundforces are of the same quality, you might as well invade us with this...



So bring it.  Wink

By the same logic Finland was actually Russian before it was Finnish.
Today life's easy for the honourables, you don't have to wage any wars, just buy a majority of the stakes!
