"I Can Only Pray" info
I think that no one ever read about that Sweden is cutting down hard on the swedish military. Though, I ask myself the question, is it worth it? Not that we have any enemies or threath. But what would we do the day something WOULD happen. Terrorism can't always be predicted, and the cause isn't always known. The fun thing in this is that in a 10-years period the swedish army have went from having 45000 people joining up to now 18000 a year.
Though, they have right toughts about looking for the best of the best and to pick the bad ones out. But who say that those who want to join up because they are interested is not the best? I know many people disagree with that question. But doesn'tthe will of doing something create a part of being good at something?
I have wanted to join the sweidsh military a LONG while back.. Can't remember exactly when but I can assure you that I was only a child at that age.
Though, It's allowed to women to join up and get advanced in the military. Wich I love for that part. Women should have the exactly the same right s as men. Since 1980 the swedish army have allowed women to recruit but at the start they had the right to do only parts of the army and not do any jobs who the officers saw as "unfitting" for a woman.
But since 1989 the swedish army let the women get advacned in the army and they could do every part that a man could do. If they could reach up to the same tests as the men did. There was no easy way for women to work in the army. And the army isn't a playground, it's a duty.
But anyways, the thing is that I am concerned abuot Sweden and it's own safety. I won't lie, I am really concerned. Though we seem to be "safe" without having any enemies or threaths aganist us. But we couldn't even protect our swedish foreignminister Anna Lindh from the crazy guy stabbing her in the stomach and she died short after the stab. The same goes for our prime minister back in the time - Olof Palme. He got shot on the open streets.
And the even funnier thing, our security police, wich should be compared to the CIA. Now SÄPO (as it is called) couldn't even prevent our King to get a damn cake in the face back in our days. And I mean, He got the cake in the face and such. But what if it would be some hostile man not far away from him that would actually point a gun without showing the gun. Where is our security?
And now a days, when we youths wan't to change that, we can even try to join up, because not many people who apply to the swedish army get's recruited. So how do we change the safety if sweden won't let us?
I don't get it.. But maybe someone who knows a little better then me on this part will. Though, a part of me cries, because I won't let my country who have fed me and raised me, fall apart. But how can I prevent something I don't even have the right to change it?
How will I know make those ministers hear my plea of letting me serve my country and do what's right. Will we let the terrorism and other things rule here in Sweden? And the even more concerning is the swedish police who use violence as a fun thing to do with people who is angry about Sweden's situation.
I can just pray for the times to change.. I can just pray for Sweden looking up at the US and see the military over there as a rolemodel.
I can only pray..
