Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, yes, I know. I don't read the paper, but I was linked to it from a blog I read. It's a very good article in spite of being in the TWS.

And the article connects to another thing too, namely the fact that I wouldn't be suprised if a big part of the Swedish enthusiasm for this is based on the chance of selling 48 Gripens each to Norway and Denmark, and eventually also to Finland. After all, a key area in the cooperation is joint procurement. And as Sweden buys a dispropotionate amount of Swedish gear, everyone else will also have to do that (though they already do that to some degree). ;) Sure, the other Nordic countries have arms industries too, but not at all as big part of their economy is there.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
