Beware the nice ones...


Yeah, it's a fact. Sweden not only have a nuclear program during Cold War (frankly, who haven't?), but also toyed with the possibility of pre-emptive nuclear attack on USSR (!), in case they suspect that USSR is preparing for invasion. The RB-330 supersonic cruise missile was supposed to be a long-range first-strike weapon, for the single purpose of blasting the Baltic States ports thus disrupting the invasion efforts (and, also, several hudnred thousands of Latvians, Lithuanians and Estonians, by the way...) Eventually the project was scrapped, while Sweden military realised, that while they might just be able to hold off USSR by the nuclear deterrence, they definitely should not start the exchange themselves.

Icelandic place names may sound exotic, but they're usually not very creative. Example: The most powerful waterfall in Europe, Dettifoss, just means "falling falls"

Denmark situation was worse. After DK decided not to have nuclear weapons (It started out on the forefront of nuclear research), the policy of the USSR was to nuke all Danish land until nothing over a foot was left standing so they could sail their baltic fleet out through the Danish straits.

The US knew this and had deviced a counter: Nuking all Danish straits until it was impossible to sail through them.

In case of WW3, Denmark would not only have ceased to exists as a country and a people, it would have ceased to exist as a geographical features.

Aww, I like it when Russia smiles here, it looks really genuine. See, he's not a bad guy, he just needs someone to like him. I doubt it's funny when people around you are afraid of you and think you're going to invade them even though you really don't want to. I guess that's a possible side effect of being big and powerful.

Now, in May 2022, with Russia invading Ukraine and Sweden wanting to become a member of NATO, I can just say that this one didn't age very well.

Sweet nuke. But can it vaporize a city like the nukes from MURICA!?

God, fuck nukes. We could take care of this Russia situation if Putin shitface didn't have nukes.
