Sweden Increases Defence Budget due to Russian land-grab in the Ukraine.

(Stockholm) As much as the Russian President Vladimir Putin would like the world to think that Russia is the victim when it comes to its land grab of the Ukraine. (Why are all the former CND crowd who screamed that it was better to be red than dead during the cold war so silent???)  It appears that others don't see it that way. which is why Sweden has gone agaisnt the grain and increased its defence budget for the first time in over 20 years in which to allow it to rearm in the face of am imperialistic Russia. The first thing they have done is order an extra 10 Saab JAS 39 Gripen NG fighter jets on top of the 60 they have already ordered.

It appears that all these years of defence cuts which the left demanded of the West hasn't made the world a better place at all , that those who use might in which to get their own way have simply become emboldened by these Western defence cuts and just like in the 1930s the West has to start playing catch up by rearming.
