"The country can be dragged into the war in the Arctic": the Swedish Ministry of Defense released videos about possible threats

44

The Swedish Ministry of Defense announced the release of a series of videos, which are united by a single title "If War Comes". These short videos are intended to tell the Swedish society about the challenges the Swedish state faces today, how the Swedish army is ready to respond to challenges, how conflicts can affect the population and how it is planned to counter threats in the future.


The Swedish Ministry of Defense emphasizes that the videos were created "for better awareness" of the subjects of the kingdom of the threats they may face.

The materials, as noted, were created on the basis of real scenarios that were previously proposed and worked out by representatives of the armed forces.

One of these scenarios, according to which the videos were filmed, is associated with "a possible war in the Arctic." The Swedish military filmmakers decided to show the Swedes that the country "may be among the participants in the hostilities in the Arctic region."

Sweden could be embroiled in a war in the Arctic.

It is not hard to guess who the Swedish army is ready to face in such a conflict ...

One of the plots examines the "battlefield of the future". It is noted that these may be not only those "locations" of the classic battlefield that were used in past military conflicts. In particular, it is indicated that this may be a confrontation of a different nature, including energy networks, financial systems. It is noted that real battles can take place in urban areas with subversive forces involved.



In the comments of Swedish users, different opinions were expressed on this matter: from the fact that Sweden needs a military alliance with neighboring Finland, to the fact that these videos show where the funds from the growing Swedish military budget are actually spent.

    Sweden could be embroiled in a war in the Arctic.

    Only America can drag Sweden into the war, for which they are preparing.

        This does not prevent the Americans from conducting joint exercises against us on the territory of Sweden, such is the Scandinavian neutrality.

        No, but they were not in an alliance with Finland in 1939-40 either with Germany in the WWII, but this did not prevent her from fighting on their side as a soldier.
        Quote: Crowe
        And no sideways to the Arctic.

        Greedy ... the most that is not on. There is too much wealth there.
        And these videos can only be called psychological preparation for the war of the population. I would not be surprised if soon they present specific territorial claims to us

          This is not preparation for war, but for joining NATO. This topic is being actively promoted, and in fact it has been promoted someday.

      Bearing in mind the past wars against Russia (USSR) and what position Sweden occupied in them, I will allow myself to assume that Sweden, without any "persuasion" and with great pleasure, will take part in other military campaigns if they are unleashed against Russia.
      And propaganda videos are made in order to accustom the subjects of their country to this simple idea.

    These are videos from the series "If tomorrow is war, if tomorrow is on a campaign ..." In general, while they are preparing to fight against a contrived enemy in the Arctic, the main enemy, migrants, have already occupied and are occupying their cities ... Therefore, it may turn out like this, that when the Swedes return from this war, those who survive will find that their homes are already occupied and their wives are being posted by Negroes and Arabs ...

    How can a country declaring neutrality be dragged into a war? Only if she is attacked.
    The second question then begs: Does Sweden have Arctic possessions?
    It looks like the Swedes know something about the Arctic and want a piece of the pie, pumping up their own neutrality.

    It all depends on the size of the Swedish ass (sorry muah). If she seeks to sit on two chairs (neutrality and NATO) after eating big magicians, then of course, there may be a leg that will not stand it. repeat

    "If War Comes"
    If you do not, at the behest of the Anglo-Saxons, bully Russia and participate in their adventures, you will not come. Better at your leisure, re-read the history of the Battle of Poltava and 2 MB, refresh your memory. But since we are harnessed to this cart, then no rollers will help.

      Riefenstahl also filmed masterpieces for Hitler. But the question is that both her films and these videos initially have one goal - war and blood.

        A material or tool can be used in many ways. Thrintrotoluene can undermine the slope in order to save the village from an avalanche or mudflow, or you can plant bombs and bomb the village. You can cut a pipe with a knife, or you can put a neighbor under the shoulder blade. It all depends on the end user, alas.

    A neutral country is ready to fight far from its borders, what kind of neutrality is so interesting? No, it is clear that everything is relative, like Swedish neutrality in World War II, but if the answer for the second did not come, then you will get the full for the third, if You will not be quiet. Why would they need the Arctic, and, most likely, the Russian one? To satisfy the ambitions of the Swedes' belligerence?
