Swedish Soldiers: A Bunch Of Lushes And Druggies?

Fri Feb 17, 2006 9:22 am

From a Swedish newspaper:

http://www.thelocal.se/article.php?ID=3074&date=20060216

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

Classic Norwegian. "Vi er verdens bedste!" dopey 
What was the name of that Norwegian football commentator who absolutely lost it after Norway had beaten England 2-1 15-20 years ago. Anybody know? He was going on about Winston Churchill, Lady Diana and Margareth Thatcher. Then he said: "Can you hear me? Your boys took a hell of a beating!" Or something like that. Brilliant but mental.

By the way, what hell happened in hockey the other day? Russia-Sweden 5-0!!
Hopefully things will get better now that Forsberg will be playing. I always support Sweden when they play hockey at the Olympics.

My buddy did military service in Norway, he said they drank a LOT but that they also did a decent amount of training etc I guessing it's the same in Sweden and other countries that still have conscription.
