Sweden is bringing back the draft starting July 2017. Men and women included. A pool of 13,000 people born in 1999 will be selected based on questionnaires. From that pool, it will be narrowed down to 4,000. Those 4,000 will be used to supplement volunteer enlistment in 2018 and 2019. Conscripts will be tested for physical and psychological well-being.
Sweden is being conquered by Islam, but the Socialist government is bring back the draft to confront alleged Russian aggression. The Swedish government says they will participate in a buildup of forces in the Baltics.
Marinette Nyh Radebo, a spokeswoman for the Swedish Ministry of Defense, said conscription is needed because of the “deteriorating security situation in Europe, particularly in light of the Russian aggression against Ukraine.”
Sweden is not even a member of NATO. Sweden has troops deployed on the Island of Gotland that monitor the Russian military. This is a Baltic island that is part of Sweden. It is unclear if the conscripts will be deployed to Gotland or actually deployed alongside NATO troops in Baltic countries.
No, this is not satire or a parody.
Sweden previously ended 109 years of military conscription in 2010.
