is a press statement from the organisation Stop NATO in Norway,
regarding Sweden’s recent decision to sign a Host Country Agreement
sad day for Sweden. A sad day for the Nordic countries. A sad day for
May 25th Riksdagen (the Swedish National Assembly) sacrificed the
Swedish neutrality policy by joining the NATO Host Country
Agreement. This happened almost without any public debate. Popular
protests and 41 300 signatures have been swept aside by Riksdagen.
Agreement makes Sweden a possible host country for aggressive NATO
exercises during peacetime. In addition, the Swedish government may
allow NATO to invade the country if a crisis or a conflict should
occur. Inevitably, Sweden will become directly involved in NATO’s
armament proliferation and their aggressive provocations against
Russia. Large-scale fleet exercises in the Baltic Sea will further
increase the danger of confrontation and war.
is not only a tragedy for Sweden; it increases the arms race and the
danger of war throughout Europe. The fact that Sweden has been
staying out of military alliances until now, has been a stabilizing
factor throughout Northern Europe. The Swedish submission to NATO may
spell the end to peace in the Nordic region.
Sweden and Finland into the military alliance has been an aim for
NATO and the United States for a long time. The governments of
Denmark and Norway have been henchmen in this filthy game. The
appointments of Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Jens Stoltenberg as
Secretary Generals have been part of a strategy to coerce and bribe
Sweden and Finland into joining the alliance.
NATO in Norway feels obliged to alert our Swedish brothers against
the consequences of becoming a slave to NATO and the United States.
If the goal is safety and peaceful coexistence in the Nordic region,
NATO offers the opposite. NATO has turned Norway into a front-line
for US nuclear strategy and a spying central in the Arctic region. In
reality, Norway has no foreign or security policy of its own.
Norwegian special forces are being deployed into aggressive military
operations against peoples and states that have never threatened our
country – like in Afghanistan, Libya and now in Syria. Norwegian
social spending is cut back while our tax money is being spent on an
unrestrained build-up of offensive weapons of war, because NATO
best way the Swedish people can contribute to peace is to defend
their country’s neutrality and sovereignty until the bitter end.
The best way for the Norwegian people to contribute to peace in the
north is to pull Norway out of the war alliance called NATO.
