This was about who we honor on Memorial Day, and Europe lost millions of lives in the process.
I would expect some level of gratitude and compassion from the citizens of a country that knew they were being saved eventual occupation, if Hitler would have won WW2. Just like the term collateral damage is used, there should be a term called collateral benifit, meaning when every other occupied country was liberated, Neutral countries knew they never could be occupied. But who paid for it in blood and deaths. Everybody else!
What are you talking about?
It's ONE Swede who's acting in a way that irritates you. The idea that his thoughts reflect the rest of the people in his country is completely ignorant.
Also, the Soviet Union would have gotten to Sweden before the Germans did.
