Sweden's role as Nazi Germany's key iron ore supplier has been dismissed
-as Swiss banking often was- as mere 'commercial' transactions, but it's hard to explain-away new information in a just-released book detailing how the Swedish government assisted the Wehrmacht's invasion of neighboring Norway by offering Sweden's national railways to ferry troops and equipment north, which were then used to defeat the British at Narvik (leading to Nazi occupation of the entire country, their first conquest).
Trains going the other way later carried iron-ore and Jews to Germany
(both basically headed for the furnace).
All the benefits of joining of the Axis alliance, with NONE of the negatives:
NO fighting against the the Germans initially, Hitler won't bomb you, then no fighting for the Germans... abandon the Jews to their fate, make a fortune doing business with Berlin-- and plausible deniability throughout.
Pretty wormy move- they should be ashamed.
|Swedish guilt: beyond tinfoil hat|
No number of gang-rapes of your Swedish daughters (age 8-80) is ever going to fix the past... what the hell are you sacrificing them for?
Do you really hate yourselves so much -even in your affluent, cultured country- that Sweden must now be destroyed just to make right?
Why not just face the truth about your past... then proceed in a sane, practical manner? Don't you think you owe that to your kids, rather than subject them to some crazy social experiment based on your own hangups?
Anything else you need to get off your chest that we don't know about yet...?
Suggestion: Maybe Sweden should become a vocal supporter of Israel, seeing as how Swedish crimes are part of the reason for it's existence. And perhaps you could now help guarantee that existence. Why not do something for those you actually owe a debt to (rather than random Somalis, etc.)?
Nothing more pathetic than a self-loathing viking, you know.
