Sweden has decided to bring back military conscription, even though there is no military threat from its neighbours. The decision means that 13,000 young people born in 1999 will have to undergo a military assessment, from which 4,000 men and women will be selected for national military service.
The excuse given for the decision is that the government is worried about Russia's Baltic military drills. But Russia poses no threat to Sweden, so there must be another unspoken reason.
Possibly it has something to do with the creeping feeling that Swedes have that their country "has already been invaded by an enemy," something that is caused by the vast influx of migrants from Third World countries.
Even though they arrived "peacefully," most of these migrants are simply incapable and definitely unwilling to assimilate to Swedish society, even under the most favourable conditions. Since their arrival they have aggressively taken over parts of Sweden, creating "no go zones", and fuelling a crime and rape epidemic that has some of the characteristics of a brutal invasion.
Over the past 15 years, some 650,000 mainly Third-World "asylum-seekers" (around 8% of Sweden's population) have made their way to Sweden, with 163,000 (around 2% of Sweden's population) arriving just last year.
