"Sweden is at War"
Two years ago Pres Trump read the poem 'THE SNAKE' - see 2.3 min video here
7-13-19, * -- According to Malmo city statistics; in 2019 the city that has appx 300,000 inhabitants, one third were "born abroad." In March, Sweden's National Forensic Center estimated that since 2012, the number of shootings in the country classified as murder or attempted murder had increased by almost 100 percent. The Centre found that the most popular weapon used in the shootings is the Kalashnikov assault rifle that is smuggled into the country.
"Plan your itinerary - know your area...try to minimize the time from when you park your bike / car until you enter [the destination]. Before leaving a building, look out first and make an assessment of the surroundings to avoid getting into an unwanted situation... keep away from people who are considered potentially threatening or dangerous and increase the distance if there are no other people nearby".
The municipal government's guidelines on safety seem appropriate for a civil war zone, such as Beirut once was, rather than for the once-peaceful city of Malmö.
Car fires, frequent and widespread, are just one of the new aspects of living in the formerly idyllic city of Lund. One university spokesperson said about car burning: "I definitely think that these are young people who have not found their place in society, who know they are not accepted. …Car fires are not just a way of showing their displeasure; but a way of showing that they are frustrated, desperate and angry."
Swedish author Björn Ranelid disagreed he wrote in Expressen: "Sweden is at war and it is the politicians who are responsible. None of these criminals is starving or lacking in access to clean water. They have a roof over their heads and they have been offered free schooling for nine or twelve years. They do not live in dilapidated houses. All of them have had a higher material standard in their homes than several thousands of the children and young people who grew up at Ellstorp in Malmö where I lived with my parents and two siblings, in 47 square meters in two small rooms and a kitchen from 1949 to 1966."
What is the Swedish government's assessment of the violent and volatile situation? As late as June 6, 2019 on Sweden's National Day, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven remarked:
"Sweden still has serious societal problems; but even though we can think of old times as an idyll with red cottages and green meadows, very few things were better before. I think we should celebrate just that, how much we have achieved as a country. We have built a strong country, where we take care of each other. Where society takes responsibility and no man is left alone."
Sadly, many Swedes probably feel terribly left alone in a country that increasingly resembles a war zone.
