Sweden soon at war? Yes, perhaps, if in NATO

It was a few days ago when Swedish Army chief, Major-General Anders Brännström stated in a (leaked) internal document that 'Sweden could be at war within a few years.'

Stubb and Tuomioja rush to reassure after Russian statement: ‚ÄúNothing to worry about‚ÄĚ | To old-fashioned politics, security is still predominantly about weapons, military activities and "signalling".
