    It's not often that I have reason to be proud of the actions of the Swedish government, but sometimes it happens.

    They did a magnificent job rectifying a stupid situation. The Aussie know-it-all should have known better, but of course they all 'know it all' and can't be told.

    Well done, Sweden!

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Hello Paul,

    It's not often that I have reason to be proud of the actions of the
    Swedish government, but sometimes it happens.

    Well done, Sweden!

    The Hermit Kingdom sentenced an American college student to several
    years of hard labor for stealing a propaganda sign, and then failed
    to protect him from harm. Sweden was instrumental in getting him
    released and repatriated to the USA, where he died days later upon
    arrival due to injuries sustained.

    Kim Jong-Un claims he knew nothing about it (the American college
    student being imprisoned and mortally wounded). Donald Trump says
    he believes his pen pal was telling the truth.

    News later reported by the news media that $2 million USD was paid
    by the Trump administration to The Hermit Kingdom in order to obtain
    his release.

    No mention was made about Sweden's involvement, but it is clear
    that some entity had to have made the exchange of funds.

    The Hermit Kingdom lives up to its reputation.
    After the armistice was signed, only four nations
    were allowed to have diplomatic relations - Poland,
    Czechoslovakia, Switzerland, and Sweden. And then
    the regime later decided to get rid of Poland and
    Czechoslovakia. For no apparent reason other than
    just to do it because it could.

    Whatever Switzerland and Sweden are doing to keep
    themselves in good standing with The Hermit Kingdom
    is beyond anybody's understanding. But the rest of
    the world should be thankful for both have done so
    that the world can remain at peace.

    Kudos for Sweden! And kudos to Switzerland!

    For at least trying to make this world a better
    place - for all, not just for themselves.
