I've never been a soldier myself.

But I understand why my country has been successful like no other on the battlefields of Europe (and even outside of our continent) throughout the centuries.

A strong, well organized country will always enjoy a major advantage against an instable nation where many locals are willing to aid the invading forces.

We've beaten the Russians with an army 1/10 their size (at Narva). Afterwards, Charles XII of Sweden said that it was "great fun fighting fleeing Russians, because you could actually sit comfortably mounted on your horse and shoot them like they were little ducks".

Swedes like me might annoy some, but PC diplomacy isn't the only thing we've got running around in our bloodstream.

If you ever get to meet a Swede who's not a 18 year old female wearing a bikini, you'll probably understand (it could take some time though, if you're stupid) we are a "can do" culture that believes more in results than BS.

We have defeated the Germans as well as the Russians in war time after time and if America fails to introduce civilization to the most inaccessible parts of Afghanistan, we will.

Nothing really happens, but that actually means a lot.

And when did the Swedes fight, let alone defeat, the Germans? 30 years war doesn’t count.

America defeated Germany twice. And then re-built Germany in 1945 through The Marshall Plan. Something your little nation could never do. As the major heavy-lifter in NATO, my country has provided the umbrella of safety for 50 years of the Cold War that kept the Russian bear at bay, it wasn’t you Swedes. Pal, like it or not most of the world knows Sweden for just two things— Volvo cars and explicit, triple X-rated pornography. Well three actually, the 40mm. Bofors anti-aircraft gun. Good weapon that. So listen up world, don’t piss off the Swedes, you hear? “Cuz if you do they’ll send a hot-ass looking porn star driving a Volvo sedan mounting a 40mm. Bofors gun to take you out!

Sweden is noted for white food. Even food that isn’t naturally white is buried is some kind of white sauce, except maybe inedible lingonberries.

BWA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Sweden is a nice vacation spot, but it couldn’t do much of anything to any major power. The Swedes couldn’t even beat Finland if they had to.

Then Laz, what you have to do is find some way to piss off the Swedes and I’m sure they’ll send one(or two) of ‘em out to get you.
