  4. 'Tis true. Like eFP, it may look like far too little and far too late; but it is already sufficient to close off a large number of the easy wins that Russia could previously choose from (e.g. unopposed seizure of Gotland, having a pop at Latvia without getting NATO involved, etc. etc. etc.)

    And for both Sweden and Finland, the trend is good. Now, if they can just get their act together so Finnish land power can work with Swedish air and Norwegian maritime....

    Sweden's are more clever guys that other Europeans. They understand that even lose in war as independent (non-noclear) country is much better that, even win as part of NATO. And if they will be really clever - they will annex South Norway when big war will be started.

  7. Any conflict in the Baltics would see Russian invasion of the Island, Sweden will work with NATO to eliminate the Russia aggression and push Russia back to pre-defined borders.

    YarS On ROPs

    All is simple. In the first hour of war, all Norway cities (exept Tromsø, of course) will be burned with strategic nuclear strike. All NATO bases in Tribaltic will be burned with tactical nukes. Sweden and Finland will have a choice - join a NATO and lost at least third part of population in the next hour, or be a neutral and send "humanitarian intervention" in Southern Norway to help a survivers (and guarantee a neutral status of occupied territories).
     
  9. Just a little bit emotional are we? You have started a thread about malicious communications, why then suggest a person you have never met be killed horrifically.

  14. I don't really take much notice of him mate, it's always same old same old with him, ie: "the Russians are coming, the Russians are coming"........ rinse and repeat.
     
  15. Not strictly true, is it? What I have said over the last months is that the window of opportunity has been closed for the Russians. Care to re-post?
