SWEDISH HOME GUARD DRILLS! FIRST TIME IN OVER FORTY YEARS!
SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME?
From the Russian media outlet Russian Times [RT] and with thanks to same.
"War cry: Sweden mobilizes all its reservists for 1st time in 40 years (PHOTOS)"
"For the first time since the height of Cold War, Sweden has called its entire Home Guard force – 22,000 reservists – for snap exercises."
"Sweden mobilized all 40 Home Guard battalions in an unprecedented exercise that has not been held since 1975. The drills marked the National Day of Sweden, celebrated on June 6."
. . . .
"The main task of the Home Guard is to fulfill secondary military roles, such as patrolling and guarding important infrastructure objects, while the standing army is engaging an enemy at the front lines."
HOME GUARD HAVING A COMBAT CAPABILITY BUT MORE OR LESS IN A DEFENSIVE AND PASSIVE POSTURE!
FORTY THAT NUMBER SIGNIFYING THE END OF ONE ERA AND THE BEGINNING OF ANOTHER! SURELY THIS IS SO!
