You are so full of shit, you sound like a hateful, jealous homosexual whose scandanavian boyfriend threw him over for a sheep since you are so far below an animal, you obviously have a lot of hate for the scandanavian people, don’t even get me started how superior most of them are than so called Americans.
Scandinavia isn’t ONE country, I don’t know what percentage of their GDP Sweden allocate the military but they don’t officially have any US support anyway since they aren’t part of NATO. And I’m pretty sure it’s only Denmark among the scandinavians who are below the NATO-minimum of 2%.
Also seeing how Irish that carrot-top Kyle Smith is he really shouldn’t talk about other peoples drinking habbits.
My mother just gave me your article, and based on it she says, “the Post is so hateful that I will no longer be reading it.” I know your thoughts on how the Danes are, not once do you mention the good they have done. Saving all the Jews from Hitler, makes me proud to be if their decent. King Christian X blowing up his ships to stop Hitler from using them was a selfless act. As for the drinking, well… The snow makes me want to drink too. Coming from an Danish/Irish background, whiskey and schnapps are in my blood, I however, abstain. They are a quiet, non boastful people, no longer the Vikings of long ago. We Americans have taken over as the loud, fighting, and warring Vikings of long ago.
According to the world bank site the average for Sweden from 2010 to 14 is 1.1 percent. Finland is 1.2.
Norway is the same as economic powerhouse Germany at 1.4 percent. Go Norway.
Given that NATO or if you prefer “The West” has similar security responsibilities as well as the US going the cradle to grave welfare route, the US should follow Europe’s lead and halve our defense percentage and let the rest of Europe either make up the difference or live with the future implications, particularly as Europe is rather closer to the threats.
Your comments about Finland were simplistic and shallow, kind of like a foreigner judging the American character
solely based on the behavior of people
at NY’s St. Patrick’s Day parade. If you truly want some depth of understand-
ing about the Finnish people, read
‘Finland, Cultural Lone Wolf’ by another
Englishman, Richard D. Lewis, who lived
and worked there for 50 years. You
might also try the documentary DVD ‘Fire
and Ice’,produced by American Ben Strout, about the Winter War of 1939-
1940. On the other hand, if the purpose
of your article was to prove yourself
an ignorant wise-ass, no action is nec-
essary – you’ve already succeeded.
