  • Russia carried out practice nuclear strike against Sweden in 2013

    Is Russia becoming a world threat?

    When Russian planes carried out a simulated attack against Sweden in 2013, it included nuclear warfare, a Nato report has revealed.

    The training mission by the Russian military took place just beyond the eastern edge of the Stockholm archipelago three years ago. It grabbed global headlines because Sweden's military was slow to react due to staff being on vacation and had to rely on help from Nato.

    Several Swedish media outlets had previously speculated that the exercises also included a simulated nuclear attack, but this was never confirmed.

    Now, Nato's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has revealed that this was indeed the case - a revelation that appears in the defence alliance's annual report.

    That is just something that further reinforces the impression that Russian leadership is deranged and unhinged.

      Maybe it is time to raise the various NATO countries Defense Budgets? It would seem that vaunted 'Peace Dividend' is false again. It would also help if the US Congress Sequestering rule is lifted.

        Of course, NATO knows it better what Russia was going.

            Well Sweden has been asking for it. Especially with its enormous nuclear arsenal.

                      Someone is taking it seriously....

                      Sweden could be at war in just a few years, a top military officer has claimed in an internal document sent to soldiers and Swedish Armed Forces staff and seen by Swedish media.

                      Swedes to get alerts on foreign intrusions (16 Sep 15)
                      Russian jets spotted off Sweden's east coast (31 Aug 15)
                      Sweden's Major General Anders Brännström made the comments in a brochure for representatives attending an annual Armed Forces conference in Boden next week.

                      "The global situation we are experiencing and which is also made clear by the strategic decision leads to the conclusion that we could be at war within a few years. For us in the army we have to, with all force we can muster, implement the political decisions," he wrote, reported the Expressen tabloid.

                        You mentioned they wanted their cheese which is more Swiss than Swedish. I take geo political issues very seriously too. There are a lot of unknown quantities now. If economies go tits up I'll get more concerned.

                          Hmm, let go of the cheese thing, it's not that earth shaking. It was a joke that apparently went bad. But then you remarked Volvo, which is now a Chinese company...
                          Let's not down play the importance of the event, or the gravity of geopolitics.
                          The Russian goal IMO is to prove they are still important, and to challenge NATO.

                            That is good info Johan. If the world were perfect there wouldn't be any of these weapons, but that isn't reality

                              When I see stuff like this, I have to ask if anybody remembered the cold war? What is going on now is light lunch in comparison.
