    Yeah sure, like the probability of Sweden being in danger of being attacked in the near future is something to be concerned about.

    We lack a lot of Artillery, that's true. I somehow forgot about that...
    Equipment vice for the individual soldiers we got it all, along with personal and platoon level weapons

    You never know. Maybe their police overreacts in Malmö's Rosengarden (or not, but 'activists' tweet so) and the international community demands Sweden to talk with these freedom fighters instead of massacring them. Sweden denies and Kungen refuses to apologise. Then it is time for a UN no fly-zone, guns and other support for the islamist freedom fighters and Sweden is in de facto civil war. Now Norway attacks lappland to reserve for themselves oppressing their sami people too and Finland invades to form a buffer zone to protect our people in Sweden. Bosnians want Lindköping for their free independent city-state and Poland wants to get even on hundreds years old grievances...

    Your newspapers have often given me the other impression, but I am aware they are notoriously left wing PC. Sprewing bile about the US, Israel and Denmark has been something of a hobby for many a columnist on Aftonbladet, I think.

    What is the actual "role of" the Swedish military? Like what are the missions they could be expected to undertake, in terms of scale, duration etc?
    Besides fighting the frost giants from Jotunheim?

    As far as defense is concerned, this is not news in Europe.
