As a Norwegian myself, this whole thing has been blown out of proportion :/ smh. and the russians have deployed 36 warships to the Barents sea, saying its a training exercise. the Norwegian government was not told about this beforehand.


Co-incidence?

Given NATO's overwhelming preponderance of military aircraft, how long do you think thirty six warships would last if deployed in an aggressive manner?

European countries like Russia, Norway, Sweden are ethnic based countries. It's practically impossible for them to invade each other. They fight tooth and nail to defend their ethnic land. In Crimea all the ethnic Russian Ukraine army soldiers joined Russia army.

Sweden has a large Finnish minority in the north. Russia might aid Finland declare war on Sweden to separate northern Sweden out of Sweden.

Hmmm, the why is there a Ukrainian Army?? Sorry, but Ukrainians don't join the Army of the Empire they just became free from...any more than those in Crimea vote to rejoin an empire. For the very reasons you cite. Ethnicity.

The people are probably prepping for a revolt over their taxation by their federal governments.

If they're not, they should be.

How Scandinavian Countries Pay for Their Government Spending


If anything we should be revolting about the destruction of our welfare state.... the taxes arent arent the problem, rich anti social people are.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. North Korea and Vietnam used to be enemies of America, now they are allies of America against China.

Sweden doesn't border Russia. Not seeing a connection there. They might want a go at Norway though. The Norwegians keep winning the winter Olympics.

So your view of it is no big deal. Just an exercise and the locals feathers are ruffled largely to not being informed of the drill and potential disruption of commercial shipping schedules?

Could be....
