Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Blowback is always a risk. Doing nothing is also a risk. I don't think anyone has argued for sending anti-air missiles - the Russians don't use their airforce in any case. What's needed are anti-tank weapons. That's not a big problem from a blowback perspective.

This does not, however, mean that sending arms or military support is the right choice. But it sure seems pretty hypocritical for me to say that, as the defence policy of Sweden is founded on the very expectation that foreign troops and arms will come to our aid if we are attacked.

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