    First casualty of war is always the truth. That, and the hymen of the womenfolk.

    I think if you counted all the women raped by enemy soldiers in history, and all the soldiers raped by each other in history, you'd come out about even.

    If you just did the navy women wouldn't even come close.

    how? lol ..sweden and russia doesnt even share a border. methinks you don't actually know what the fuck you are talking about, oldman. Sweden actually has a robust weapons industry (the USArmy and USNavy being some of its customers)..

With today's declaration of intent can now also be the first step in negotiations between Sweden and Slovakia for the introduction of the Gripen in Slovakia," wrote the Ministry of Defence.

    good for them; collective defense and Sweden gets a new customer for it's SAAB Gripen when Slovakia starts buying them. So that'll be seven nations using the Gripen.. Sweden, Hungary, Czech Republic, South Africa, Thailand, Slovakia, and the UK's Empire Test Pilot School.

    Gripen is a very capable 4th generation plane .. comparable to the F-18.

    Thats an ignorant dumbass thing to say. Sweden has compulsory military service.. Which means most swedish kids go into the military and learn to handle weapons by the time they are 19yo. That country is plenty prepared for a defensive war.. For instance their highways are designed to function as airstrips and their warplanes are STOL capable, the gubmint subsidies concrete garages for homeowners that function as military supply caches and bunkers during war, the swedish navy is one of the most modern on the seas, etc etc.

    Still need to defend their homeland. The swedish military doctrine is defensive in nature. Its how they managed to stay a "neutral" country stuck between NATO and the WarsawPact during the coldwar.



    FYI "Neutral" in this case being a relative term. Turns out Sweden did take a side...

    Cold War treaty confirms Sweden was not neutral
    Sweden signed a top secret intelligence treaty with the US and other countries in 1954, forecast the 2008 Georgian war, and now routinely spies on Russia civil targets, leaked documents from US whistleblower Edward Snowden reveal.

    Strange I don't remember you being critical of that. Yet you want to condemn President Trump for not honoring commitments before he even dishonors them.

    They are another NATO suckwad now.

    They rely on us to save them.

    Yea, this is why I like the swiss ideal...train everyone for homeland defense. Its extremely hard to truly take and keep a nation that resists, you can do a lot of damage, but you cant really "win"...
