Let’s put aside for a moment the infidel’s battle for the hearts and minds of Babylon, the compassionately devastating policies of Emperor Bush II and his Gaurdians of Privilege, the incomprehensible bargaining tactics of the shameless French, the trauma of fattening up lovely white skinned avocados, etc.
The quibble of the day comes from free riding, non-aligned Sweden. And it is not about yet another boxy Volvo.
The Social Democratic government in Stockholm has ordered Sweden’s armed forces to drastically cut costs. To comply, military HQ has decided to transform the Swedish military into a 9 to 5 army, air force, and navy. It will cut fighter plane patrols to an absolute minimum, keep navy ships in port, mothball armored vehicles and stop using large caliber live ammunition during exercises.
Now that sounds like a force to be reckoned with doesn’t it?
This seems like a good opportunity for a couple of Danish guys with paintball guns to wait until just after 5 pm quitting time and then invade. They would have Sweden taken by midnight.
Could the 9 to 5 army trend catch on in the rest of Europe?
